I am someone that loves to travel. I’ve been to New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Chicago, Michigan, Florida, Buffalo in the U.S, along with Paris (France), Mexico, Cuba and London (UK). This year I will be travelling to the country I’ve been dreaming of for a few years now – South Korea, and Japan (bonus).
Ever since I became interested in KPop and Korean culture, I have been dreaming of going to SK. My older brother taught there for a year teaching elementary school kids English. Though he was teaching in a more rural area, I still envied him about being able to go there.
I was determined to go to Korea after I finished school, so after I graduated I started working so that I could save up. Eventually I did save enough, and now I will be travelling to my dream country! The other good thing is that not only will I be going to Korea, but also Japan. This was actually something my younger brother wanted to do – he had gone to Japan by himself back in 2016 and loved it. So we decided we would do a big trip to Asia this year and go to both Korea and Japan.
I’ll be gone for 2 weeks pretty much, and then come back April 25. I am so excited, I honestly can’t believe this is happening. My entire family (especially parents) have been urging me to go to Korea, as they know it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Them giving me the blessing to go to another country without them makes me realize how much trust they have in me. They believe I am responsible enough to look after myself.
My parents will be in the Philippines while my brother and I venture out to the East side of Asia.
Honestly I have no idea what’s in store so I’m just gonna welcome them as they come 🙂
