How-To: Move Home from Korea with a Pet

Posted on Tue, Jan 06, 2015 @ 10:30 AM

Last month, I posted about the (sometimes) grueling process of getting packed up to move home after your time in Korea. The stress of my move was greatly compounded by an additional factor: moving a Korean cat to the U.S. In the end, it went quite smoothly, with a lot of the stress stemming from the unknowns that come with flying with an animal. Since I'm sure some of you have gotten pets in Korea or are considering it, here's an overview of how to take your Korean cat home with you.

Pet Therapy in Korea: Yang Yang Cat Cafe

Posted on Tue, Sep 24, 2013 @ 06:09 PM

Although I have yet to experience a jimjilbang, the ultimate place for relaxation, I did enjoy some great downtime at Yang Yang Cat Cafe in Busan, South Korea.

Only in Korea: Enjoy a Cup of Coffee with a Furry Friend

Posted on Sun, Jan 06, 2013 @ 04:30 PM

A doggy cafe is exactly how it sounds, it's a cafe full of dogs running around and playing with you. It is the perfect compliment for coffee and animal lovers in Korea. For the most part, the dogs are of all ages, all different kinds. It is a great place to go to for people like me who are in love with dogs, but cannot have one. There are a few cafes in Seoul, Sunnyne Cafe, the one I visited is located in Hongdae while teaching English in Korea.
