Welcome to the first episode of Wanderlust, a bi-monthly travel podcast where I interview avid travelers about their experiences and things they’re passionate about. Today’s interview is with Jessica, the creator of Guac & Roll in Seoul. She can also be found on Instagram. In this episode we discuss life as a long term expat, Hunter Barker and pets in South Korea.
