Finally!

Blog. I am so sorry I have neglected you for a long time. My life has been so busy and I didn’t even have much time to breathe let alone blog.

However, all is about to change as I am posting this from…. Seoul!!

I am finally back!

I managed to get a lovely job and I am going to be based in the centre of Seoul! It hasn’t been an easy road, but things seem to be picking up nicely!

I left London on the 23rd of February, landed here on the 24th. I started my orientation and met so many amazing people already. I also managed to meet up with a few of my friends. I have to make a visa run to Japan on Monday, and then I start working officially!

I just can’t wait to settle in my new apartment and start to get a routine together. I really want to explore Korea this time round. Last time I did no tourist activities. But now that I am here for at least one year, bring on the new adventures.

With new adventures come more blog posts. I have my lovely camera with me so I will be able to not only tell you guys about great things, but show you too.

=D

But now I need to go and fight off this jetlag. >.<

See you soon!

Missing Seoul.

This is an entry in my diary that I wrote yesterday morning. I wrote this as soon as I woke up and I just want to post it here. I enjoy reading personal blogs and blogs that are raw thoughts, so I thought I’d have a go at it!

Missing Seoul.

The view form my class room in Hanyang university.

This day, two months ago, I was getting ready to go to Seoul for one month. On June 28th, I boarded my flight from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi and from Abu Dhabi to Incheon South Korea.

I had the best & craziest month of my life. I met amazing people and seriously fell in love with Korea. A month flew by so fast, it felt like two weeks.

On the 28th of July, the torturous pain began because I was leaving Seoul.

I knew from the very start that saying goodbye to the people I met would be hard, but I didn’t predict that I would be so attached to South Korea. I felt like I was saying goodbye to my home. That I would be going to a foreign land. That I would never return.

Today is the 28th of August. I have been back in London for a month. Not one day has gone past where I haven’t thought about Korea.

I have plans to return to Korea next year, but until then, I will have an empty void in my heart, soul and mind. That void will be filled when I return to Korea. Until then, I can only reminisce.
