My name is Meagan and I moved to South Korea in February 2011. I worked as an English teacher in Busan for a year and a half. I left my job in August 2012 and even though I no longer “live” in South Korea, I do visit quite often on a 90 day tourist visa.
I lead a pretty amazing life of travel. In 2013, I went on an international trip every month! Between travels, I stay in Ulsan with my boyfriend that works in the oil and gas industry.
I am learning that expat life as a oil/gas partner is much different than that of an English teacher! Transitioning to a new (smaller) city has been a bit difficult for me, but I love my life! Dave will be working in Korea until late 2014 and I can’t wait to see where life takes us next!
I want to make 2014 the year of Korea so I plan to do some extensive traveling around the country to find the best sites and attractions Korea has to offer.
If you found my blog while looking into information on teaching English in Korea, here’s some more information…
I taught English at a public elementary school. I applied through a recruiter (Korvia) and was hired through EPIK (English Program in Korea). If you’re interested in teaching in Korea, I recommend you read my Advice for an EPIK Applicant post and browse through my other blog posts about teaching English in Korea or life in Korea. Please note that contract details and application requirements have changed since I applied, but let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to help.
Thank you for reading!
