It has just hit me. It’s already been a month since I left Montreal.
Throughout the past month I have been a vagabond traveling across continents for work – not complaining !
I still don’t feel like I have moved to Seoul as I am still living in a hotel.
Apartment hunting has begun. I am excited to have a home here.
Surprisingly enough, I haven’t had a culture shock. I feel at like this is where I belong. Of course, the language barrier is very present. Restaurants with Korean menus only (with no pictures) are very common. I need to have a Korean friend along if I want to order in these places, as the staff doesn’t speak English either – for the most part. But its worth it. The food is incredible.
Time has gone by waaaayy to fast. One month ago I was packing up my life; ready to take on this adventure on the other side of the world.
Today, I am in a little coffee shop in Gangnam, with Christmas music playing in the background. Spent my day riding the subway, searching for a snowboard helmet (in preparation for my Japan snowboard trip this Christmas !! ).
I am so grateful to be living this adventure abroad. So many amazing things have been happening to me.
The adventure is definitely real and I am taking in every moment of it.
