Travel Tip!

One thing I regret is not having enough money when coming to Korea. For such a small country, there are so many activities and places to go, but only if you can afford it. Additionally, do not be scared to travel alone. Coming from America, I’ve never felt safer walking around by myself in alleyways after dark. Even as an African American woman, I felt safer here than in the streets of Atlanta.

Your adventure begins once you take that first step outside of your comfort zone. Then, do one thing every day that moves you further and further away from it, far enough that you forget your way back.
