It’s come as a bit of a shock to realise that I have been in Korea almost 2 months. In some ways it feels like I got here 2 weeks ago, in others like I’ve been here 6 months. The good news is that I’m finally settling in. I live here now, which brings with it both good and bad things. The good things are that I feel settled, I can get things done and that my stress level has gone way down. I’m settling into a routine, have made friends and have access to all the conveniences of living somewhere. I have a phone*, super fast Internet (I get up to 2 MBpS with wireless), an oven and a stick blender (wooo!). I know where to shop for different things (and how to get there), I know good places to have lunch and dinner, which cafes make the best coffee and I’m starting to know which Korean foods I like and dislike. Plus, a large pepperoni pizza is only $6! The bad things include getting itchy feet again, feeling homesick, getting annoyed at the language barrier and having doubts about the path I’m taking.
