I’m an English teacher in South Korea (NET)

I’m currently in the weird position of being young and retired from teaching. I’m back home in the states in limbo while trying to find a new job in the midst of the pandemic. (0/10 would not recommend) I have a degree in writing from Chicago, I love tea, writing, reading, breakfast and exploring.

This blog usually updates 4 times a week. These are recaps from my travels before moving back to the states. I’m not currently traveling outside of the United States due to the pandemic and I hope you can enjoy reading of my adventures and about the books I’m reading/book related things while we all practice some social distancing.  Please stay safe and healthy and be extra careful while you’re traveling during this time. This blog updates on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. Every other Tuesday it will update a 5th time with a new podcast episode where I interview people about travel. Transcripts will be available within the post.

Have any questions about life in abroad, travel, or living as a teacher in South Korea? Don’t hesitate to ask. I’ll do my best to answer them.
