But, if you know how and where to shop, it's easy to find good deals and not break the bank while trying to cook at home.
Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
Well there goes my diet....As I prepared to leave Korea after teaching English at Chungdahm for over a year, I became motivated to hit the gym and watch what I eat so that I return to the United States looking fit and trim. At the beginning of this year, I made up my mind to walk to the gym/sauna every morning, work out for an hour or two, and then walk to school to teach. I devised a healthy diet consisting of three solid, healthy meals that I would prepare at home each day. It was the perfect plan....
Teachers living in Korea love their convenience stores, some have even called them home. A fellow Korea blogger wrote awhile back that there are over 2,900 7-Eleven stores in Korea. Check out how close I live to my favorite 7-Eleven and all you can find inside. What is your favorite Korean convenience store goodie?
