I have been living in South Korea for the last decade, and this is the third time I’ve been on the road.
This week, I had a fantastic time travelling with the group of people that I met in Korea.
On the journey, we visited places such as the famous Park Ilbo, the country’s most famous cultural site.
We also met local businesses and local people, and I met some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.
But the most important thing about my travels is that it has given me a deeper appreciation of the beauty and richness of Korea, a country that has always captivated me.
The snowstorm we experienced last weekend was a huge shock for me.
When the weather forecast called for a temperature of 20 degrees and a high of 10, the thought of snow and freezing cold was so surreal.
When I arrived in Korea on my own at the airport, I was still completely stunned.
I didn’t know what to expect.
But after walking for two hours to the hotel, I realized that I had never seen anything like it before.
There were snowmen all over the place.
Even the restaurant was packed with snow.
I went out to eat in the evening to celebrate my first birthday.
I felt so happy, I thought.
Then I started feeling very cold.
At one point, the restaurant’s temperature hit 12 degrees, and my friend went outside to find me.
She was sitting on the snow.
After several minutes of searching, she came back and I felt the same cold feeling.
Then she went outside again and found me.
I just started feeling more and more uncomfortable and I realized it was because I was cold.
I asked my friend if she was alright and she said she felt cold as well.
After that, she just stayed inside.
It was the first time in my life I was so scared to go outside, and that’s when I realized I wasn’t going to be able to get anywhere.
I was completely freezing and freezing.
But when I was able to take some photos with my smartphone, I immediately felt so relieved.
I couldn’t believe it.
After a couple of days, I came back to the airport to tell my family, friends, and other Korean expats that I was alright.
It took me about two weeks to get over that first shock.
Then we went on a little holiday to Japan, and the next day I went back to Seoul.
We went to some amazing restaurants and met a lot of Korean people, including a couple who were just visiting.
This was a real moment of validation.
As we sat outside with our friends in the snow and took photos, I felt that I could finally see myself in their eyes.
They could see that I’m not an outsider.
And they were able to understand why I had decided to leave their home.
We are lucky to have a lot to live for in this country.
I know that I won’t be able, even if I wanted to, to go back.
But I still want to live my life here and I want to contribute to this beautiful country.
So I have to be careful.
I’m just happy to be alive.
The last time I saw my mother was in a hotel room in Seoul.
I had no idea how close she was to dying.
I don’t think I’ll ever see her again.
But, like I said, it’s important to get past the initial shock and to get through it.
I feel like a foreigner.
I think that’s why I get the most emotional reactions from people.
People here want to help me, they want to give me food, they have their own business here.
I love that feeling of being part of this country and the culture.
I hope that the snowstorm is just a few days away and we can get back to normal soon.
Koreans are always telling me how much they love me.
They want to be my friends and that I can be their partner.
I also get some of them telling me that I’ve brought a lot in my new life here.
They’ve never been able to travel to the US before and they’re excited about my new adventure.
They’re excited that I finally got to see the country for myself.
I have learned a lot from living in Korea, and it’s been very positive.
I feel like I’m able to do more and that it’s only going to get better.
I believe that I have the ability to contribute in my own way.
And I’m so excited to be in this new place and I’m excited to make the best of this opportunity.
