The Secret: How to Make Money Blogging (Without EVER Writing)

How to Make Money Blogging Ever since I moved to Seoul, South Korea, I have had a number of people ask me how to make money blogging.  Some of these people were talented writers without URL’s, some were experts in the field of Korean beauty.  Most of these people had a variety of things in…

Cya Later, Seoul: Things I’ll Miss About Korea

So Long, Korea! My life here has been incredible, but even in Neverland you’ll find you have your ups and downs.  Last week, to the dismay of many on Facebook, I wrote about the things I hate about living as a foreigner (expat) in Korea.  This week, on a more positive note, I’m sharing just…

Peace Out Seoulmates: 15 Things I Hate About Korea

Deuces, Korea! In March of 2018, I’ll be leaving Korea. After 1 year in Busan and nearly 2 years in Seoul it’s time to bid adieu to the Land of Morning Calm.  I’ve had plenty of amazing travel experiences and local opportunities, dating blunders, and hagwon hells in Korea.  There’s plenty to love, but everyone loves…

Seoul Food: Oh! Poutine – Itaewon

Oh Poutine: Canadian Comfort Food in Seoul, South Korea As a Canadian, I have a bias on how cheese curds have to be made.  They have to be slightly melty, definitely chunky, and above all: they have to squeak!  Thankfully, I share this bias with Ellie of Oh Poutine in Itaewon, Seoul.  She spends 6-7…

Expats in Korea – Seoulcialites: Anuj Madan

Expats in Korea: Seoulcialites Being an expat in Korea, we’re often pigeon-holed into 2 categories: Teacher or Military.  There are so many people doing original and interesting things in Seoul!  In this new series, I’d like to introduce you to some creative people I’ve been lucky to meet.  They may have started their professional journeys as…

SeoulFood: CraftBros Tap House & Bottle Shop (Apgujeong Bar)

Finding a spot in Gangnam where you can relax and catch up with a friend can often be overwhelming.  South of the Han there are SO many cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs, lounges, and hofs that making a decision can be infuriating.  If you’re looking for an after-work hangout, CraftBros Bottle & Tap House is a great Apgujeong…

Seoulfood: 12 Korean Dishes for Picky Eaters

Seoulfood: 12 Korean Dishes for Picky Eaters I don’t typically think I’m a particularly picky eater.  I love trying international dishes, but tend to draw the line when it comes to eating seafood (allergies), extremities (hands and feet), blood-based dishes, and anything still wriggling (sannakji, I’m looking at you) or with a face.  While there are some…

Candidly Kate: My instagram vacation was faked

I faked my instagram vacation.  The day before my Chuseok holiday began I was feeling pretty stressed out.  I couldn’t shake this nagging feeling that something was wrong. Seriously? 3,000 posts? I guess I like you, #instagram. • • • • • • • • #Seoul #Itaewon #travelblogger #travelblog #igpossetravels #wearetravelgirls #digitalnomadgirls #travelista #seetheworld #instapassport #passport…

Great Spring & Summer Date Spots in Seoul

The blogs I read before coming to Korea all had one particular common post that kind of irks me now that I live here. The majority of them stated that a single, straight woman over the age of 21 or 22 would have a tough time dating.

Why TEFL Now?

What are the differences among TEFL, TEYL, TESOL, TESL, CELTA, etc.? In the simplest of terms, they are different levels and methods of teaching English to non-native English speakers. TESL certifications are widely regarded as methods for teachers of non-native English speakers and immigrants to English speaking countries. TESOL and TEFL are geared more toward those who want to teach English in non-English speaking countries. Bingo! That’s me!

Losing Weight and Keeping it off while Traveling

Before I left Toronto to teach ESL in Korea, many of my friends (some leaner than others) told me that I would drop weight like crazy in Korea since the diet is so healthy and full of fermented dishes. While it is true that the traditional dishes can be quite healthy, they they aren’t always, and the ones that are also lack flavour.
