MOVING TO KOREA

SEOUL

 

It’s been a long time since we haven’t talked. Between my last article and now, I have been quite occupied and busy as I was getting ready for moving to Korea (Seoul) where I am currently established and will be living for the coming months until 2018.

MOVING TO KOREA: SINCE WHEN?

Moving to Korea has been a dream of mine for a very long time, but I just never thought it would be happening now. Things just went very fast and unexpectedly.

But here we are, and I couldn’t be happier.

 

Needless to say, that I wasn’t prepared, as it all unfolded rapidly. When I heard that I was possibly moving to Korea I wasn’t sure of the veracity of the situation, but true it was indeed. But then again, me being myself, I waited to have until I saw irrefutable proof.



MOVING TO KOREA: HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN THERE?

I have been now in Korea for a little more than two weeks. The coming Friday will be make it two weeks. And I really am happy about the prospect of sharing bits and pieces of this experience with you.

 

 

MOVING TO KOREA: RELOCATION

Like any other relocation, the beginning was not easy. Even though it is my fourth time visiting Seoul, amongst which we can count last year when I stayed for one month and a half, it was still a bit of a challenge. Arriving, getting around in the neighbourhood, which I knew but had never explored; continuing my accommodation hunt, moving into the apartment and getting my going on for the grocery shopping and running to get my first essential interior décor and necessities. And don’t even get me started on the jet-lag, which really got me good this year.

    Getting used to your surroundings is always the hardest. Remembering where the grocery store is, and things like that. You also need to know the culture which can be a bit embarrassing if you mess up. Although I haven’t moved to a other country I did travel, and live 3,000 miles across the US from PA to Cali. It was a huge move, but I would do something like it if I was afforded it in the future. I even drove the 3,000 miles back to PA after 2 years.

    Moving abroad is certainly a challenge. Based on my own experience language is the key. Make contact as much as possible with the locals. Anyway, you’ll be fine and wish you the best of luck for your new journey in Korea.

    Oh my! I feel all the feels girl! We up and moved to Korea in 2015 and it was a huge adjustment initially. Pretty soon we ended up loving it and stayed for two years. we left 7 months ago and i miss the food and friends we made so much! I hope Seoul is soon home for you and wish you many happy adventures! Looking forward to hearing more as you settle in 🙂

    […] feeling like summer until not long ago. I have been delighted by the beautiful Indian summer that Seoul had to offer this year. September felt so good that I didn’t need worry about wearing warm […]
