THE FINAL ONE: GOODBYE SOUTH KOREA

Two years later, here we are.

My bags are packed and I’m ready to leave South Korea, the place that has made me constantly crave spicy food, challenged me with language barriers and (many) cultural differences. The place I pushed my limits, challenged myself, fell in love, and battled loneliness. The place I found inner strength, discovered the power of my voice, and (most importantly) a place I felt safe and called home.

Busan, will always be a special place for me. I’ll miss the mountains, beaches, prompt public transportation, cheap convenience store ice cream, and of course, my students.

Leaving has been an extremely emotional and overwhelming process. I was not prepared for how much it hurts to say goodbye to people, places, and memories.

But such is life. You grow and move on.

Currently I am in Seoul, wandering around the city until my departure on Sunday. I’ve been taking my time to walk in and out of shops and discovering new places such as the COEX Mall‘s Starfield Library, which holds approximately 50,000 books and magazines. FIFTY THOUSAND! It’s an incredible sight!

I also had to make a stop at Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in Gangnam, which I’ve seen on Instagram a thousand times so I had to check it out for myself. The baked goods were just meh for me, but the interior was beautiful.

South Korea has been good to me.

I could not be more thankful to have the freedom to travel, meet new people, and creatively express my journey with you. It has been a blast taking you along on this crazy ride. Through my videos and blog posts you were there, every step of the way and I thank you for all of your support, it truly means the world to me.

I’m sad that I must say goodbye to this chapter of my life, but there’s much more to look forward to in the future. But for right now, here’s a video that captures the past couple years perfectly.
