대한민국 안녕~!


Hello Korea! Actually, I arrived three days before writing this post. Two of my penpal friends came to the airport to ease my experience, and I tell you I cannot thank them enough for that! I would have managed, but simply being thrown in would probably have shocked me a bit.

Being from Kansas, we have a tender lack of sprawling cities which only heightens the immediate culture shock. That is not to say I don’t love it here because Korea is amazing! Neither of my friends live in 홍대 (Hongdae) where I am staying for the first few days, so we trounced around a while trying to find the 김치 게스트하우스 (Kimchee Guesthouse) which is quite hidden among the numerous guesthouses in the area. I would write more about the guesthouses here, but I think I will reserve it to it’s own post.

I have a lot left to do today, so I will leave off here for the moment. Until next time~ 안녕히 계세요!

About CultureQuote - Dani

An engineering and language student at Kansas State University, I strongly believe that language learning should be free and that the only way to help inform people of cultural barriers is to openly provide materials and resources to explore.
