A Girl’s Guide To Living in South Korea

A Girl’s Guide To Living in South Korea

Dear Googlers,

I know what you are looking for, and I know what you typed into the beautiful search box to find my blog. As you all seem to be searching for 5 main things about living in South Korea, I thought I would be so kind as to include links to all of them in one, concise blog post.

If you have some how, miraculously, found yourself on my blog and are not looking for; big shoes, a hairdresser, a gym, a jimjilbang or the wedding dress/ princess cafe then WELCOME! You might enjoy this post too.

Over my two years living in South Korea, I encountered a LOT of ups and downs. I love the country as a whole, I love the people, I love the food and I love all the incredible places there are to see and things to do. What I don’t love is how difficult life can be for a blonde, curly-haired, big-footed, unfit, super tall Irish girl.

Thanks to daily and weekly frustrations in these areas, this blog has some fairly comprehensive posts on the trials and tribulations of finding the right products a girl like me needs to survive in the bustling metropolis that is Seoul. If you are like me, then this blog post should be very helpful. If you have any questions, be sure to leave a comment and I will try get back to you as soon as possible!

Here are the links to everything you are probably looking for – let me know if your are looking for something else, or you know, just use the search button!
