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.
