I'm Laura, an American expat who has just begun a new adventure in South Korea. After a few years living in New Zealand and Australia, I thought it was time to head somewhere completely new! This blog is a collection of my stories not only of my travels and expedriences, but of my life as I try to figure out how to live a happy and fulfilling life.

A Trip to Tongyeong  Posted on 08/19/2014
Remember that time I said I didn’t really use guide books? That I thought they were a thing of the past? Well, I have a confession to make, I’ve been using them since I’ve been in Korea. Kind of a lot. Does it make...

Weird Wednesday  Posted on 08/13/2014
Matching couples aren’t exactly a new phenomenon. One search on Google will yield hundreds of results. Since arriving in Korea I have built up a mild obsession with them and their planned outfits. How do they decide what to wear? I...

Where we Stayed in Busan  Posted on 08/11/2014
Our week away in Busan was our first real trip since we’ve been in Korea. We’ve had plenty of day trips in our area, but we haven’t ventured off further than an hours drive in any direction. Needless to say, I was pretty...

My Favorite Places in Seoul (so far)  Posted on 07/22/2014
Seoul has some 23 million people living, working and playing in it. That is by far the biggest city I have ever been to, and while I may not live in Seoul, the short trip north has made it an ideal weekend destination for Luke and I....

Living in Pyeongtaek  Posted on 07/15/2014
Before I moved to Pyeongtaek, I had never even heard of it. When I googled it, it seemed like no one else had either. There was so little information on the city, I had no idea what we were in for. I found out shortly after arriving in...

The People we Meet  Posted on 07/09/2014
We got off the Greyhound just after Bundaberg in a place called Apple Tree Creek. We stood around the empty truck stop, bags strapped around our hips, wondering what type of car we were supposed to be looking out for or if this was even...

Funny Things Kids Say  Posted on 07/07/2014
Over the last three months I have worked with children ranging in age from 5 to 15. I love how observant they are, how unfiltered they can be, how funny they are without even knowing it. Sometimes they say things, or worse, write them, and...

Weird Wednesday  Posted on 07/02/2014
