After two months of trying to settle in my new home and battling my inner conscience named ‘the procrastinator’, things have finally started to look up.  Not only do I have a nice little routine in life now, but this blog is maturing very nicely.  Ever since I gave it a little makeover the site traffic has finally had a little boost and interest from outside parties have also increased too!  It seems everything in my life has been upgraded somehow.  Maaan~ the feeling is so good!  Hard work and patience really does pay off!

Ahem, moving on. I had a little stroll around Hongdae the other day, and rather than doing the usual of drinking a million cups of coffee for the sake of blogging, I’ve decided to take a detour to the graffiti alleyway…for the sake of blogging… The graffiti here were pretty amazing, but what caught my eye more were…ta-dah, to nobody’s surprise…even MORE cafes.

Blogging in a way is quite interesting…it really makes you be more adventurous, and try out new things…things that you wouldn’t really bother with normally…I can say this website is slowly changing my life and as cliché as it sounds it really makes me appreciate the little things around me as well.  Without it I  probably would just be a normal foreigner in Korea teaching English, going home, sleep, get drunk, and sleep till noon every weekend.  To those who complain and say how “Korea is ugly” or “there is nothing to do in Korea”, why don’t you do something about it?  A great experience in Korea depends on the choices you make.

Anyways I hope you guys had a great start to the New Year of 2014, oh and if you are coming to Korea for the first time, do check out my personal top 10 places to visit in Seoul, via Stay.com mobile travel app.

  1. You’re SO right – there is loads to do in Korea if you’re adventurous and don’t get into the work-drink-sleep expat mindset that seems to be so prevalent. While we may have complained about living in a tiny town in the middle-of-nowhere-Korea, it made us actively seek out cool things to do every weekend and holiday. Definitely feel like we saw more of Korea in our time there then a lot of teachers ever bother to do 🙂

  2. You are so right. 🙂
    I’m so excited to go to korea this summer.

  3. Hi! I just started reading your blog last month, as recommended by a friend. My boyfriend and I went to Seoul last month and the only regret that I have is that I didn’t post too much photos of my stay in SK in instagram haha! Also, not having read your blog before our trip. Like you, I love cafe interiors so I found your blog really informative and useful for me. I love your country so much that I wanted to live there haha. I plan to come back this Spring to see cherry blossoms and the cafes you visited in this blog. Thanks so much and more blogging power! 🙂

Say Hi!
