Hello! My name is Danny, I’m from Northern Ireland and am currently living on Jeju Island.
I had wanted to do a Working Holiday somewhere in the world for some time but had no idea where – until a friend told me about South Korea. At that point I didn’t know a whole lot about the country or its culture, but what I learned from my friend immediately piqued my interest. So I booked my flights and moved to Jeju in September.
I came here wanting to take a break from the busy city life of London and it has exceeded expectations so far. Jeju Island is a popular holiday destination among Koreans and it’s not hard to see why. An abundance of beautiful beaches, amazing food, and a huge mountain stretching up from the centre give Jeju its own unique character.
I hope to capture this unique character throughout this blog as I share with you my experiences of living here, the beauties of the island and also share my travels around the rest of South Korea.
