Preparations for Korea

It has been nearly a month now that I am in Pusan. Time flies! But I tell you, a lot of preparation had to be done until I could take the flight to Korea. Applying for a visa, application of dormitory housing, financial proof, application for a scholarship, health check and much more. I would recommend you to start doing it as soon as possible. I had minor complications which resolved quite quickly but it was a very stressful period. I started my trip on the 22nd August with my family. We visited our family in Vietnam and spent a few days in Phan Thiet, Mui ne. I have not been to Vietnam since 2008. It has been 9 years. When I arrived at Tan Son Nhat airport, it felt like nothing has changed, but on the other hand, everything seemed different. I mean, I was 15 the last time I visited this place. It was nice seeing my cousin again..and seeing her husband which she only met in 2008. I remember being a cheeky teenage girl, I stole her phone at that time and wrote love messages to him, pretending I was her! I still believe that they started dating after I have set them up. We immediately drove to the hotel and sorted out our luggages. I really have to admit that I was scared to die in the cab as I forgot how the traffic was. It is CRAZY!!! Motorbikes everywhere! Traffic rules in Vietnam? I don't think that these people have heard of rules before. I am still fascinated that I have not seen any accidents yet.

A new chapter has begun

Busan, South Korea 

Hi guys,

it has been a long time since I last posted something on this blog. I remember the time where I was always excited to shoot pictures in order to share them with you guys. Unfortunately, people get older, university started and this blog fell into oblivion. I told to myself that there will be a day, where I will start again. And I guess, this is the perfect opportunity for me. It has been a few weeks now since I started living in Busan, South Korea. I am doing a study abroad at the Pusan National University right now until the end of December. The first week was difficult. It was very hard to be far away from your family and friends. I mean, I experienced something like this before. I lived in London for a year, I studied in the Netherlands for nearly 3 years...but being in's completely different! In order for you to follow me around, I decided to start blogging again. I noticed that there are not a lot of things about studying in Korea, especially at PNU, which you can find on the internet. It would have been so nice if I had something to read, to prepare myself before being plunged in at the deep end. Therefore, I try to post frequently and maybe this blog might help someone in the future. Otherwise, it will be just a nice option to share this experience to all my friends and family.

With love,
