One of the huge pluses of living abroad is that you move closer to countries that you want to visit. Living in South Korea gives you cheaper access to Southeast Asia, China, and Japan. For Chusok, a Thanksgiving-like Holiday in Korea, a couple friends and I traveled to Tokyo for four days. The experience was incredible.

I arrived in Korea last July as a wide eyed and somewhat bewildered Westerner who truly had no idea what she was getting herself into. I’m not sure how it’s happened, but in the last nine months I’ve gone from a frightened tourist to a resident of Korea, and now I find myself calling this place my home.

Everyone who knows me knows that I have the biggest sweet tooth and I can eat more dessert than any other course. I'm always asking for the dessert places, not just cafes that have slices of cakes and I finally found one that satisfies all my cravings. Things have not changed since I started teaching English in South Korea. The dessert bar Kyotofu
is a popular restaurant back in New York and is famous for its desserts. Opening one by Itaewon at the Hanganjin station in Hannam, this spot has been on my list for a while now. After finally paying a visit to the restaurant, it is a place I recommend for small groups, especially dates.
