Hello readers! My name is Vanessa, I am 26 years old and I recently moved to Seoul to study Korean.
Being born in a Swiss-Italian-Brazilian family I never thought I would be moving to Asia one day. It looked so far, so different and scary. But I love challenges and stepping out of my comfort zone. I love meeting new people and experience the differences in the world. So last year I decided to challenge myself and started studying Korean as an autodidact. Working and studying at the same time was not simple, but the more I learned about Korea and its culture the more I felt attracted to this country.
A month ago I finally convinced myself to buy a ticket to Seoul, book a room and fly to Asia for the first time in my life. I planned to stay only a month (What if I do not like it?), but it is needless to say that I postponed my return flight. Seoul is by far the most beautiful, unique and exciting city I ever been to.
I am happy to share this beautiful experience with you, so if you are curious about my school experience, my guesthouse adventure and my daily life in Seoul as a student, keep reading!
