Post cycle lunch mode: engage. Sometimes its impossible to find paleo friendly options in Korean restaurants but today I lucked out. (Potatoes were hastily off loaded to a friend). #paleo #lunch #korea
How to dine out in style whilst on hollibobs. I’m spending the weekend exploring a volcabic rock in the East China Sea but thought I’d bring a few paleo nibbles with me (in b4 ‘don’t drink your calories’). #paleo #primal #holiday
Did you get a bachelor's degree before you starting teaching English in Korea? Is there anything you wish you did, or did more of, before you got there?
Afternoon, Thanks for getting in touch!
In answer to your questions:
a) I have a 2:1 BA in Geography from a British University. The only requirement to teach at a lot of places in Korea is a bachelors degree (in anything).
b) Before I came? Not really, I was the president of a Students’ Union after I graduated and I came here after I finished that job. I don’t intend for this job to be permanent (I’ll likely only behere for a year)
That said, for a higher paid job (with more holiday!) in a public school, prior teaching experience is useful, so perhaps I should have done some of that before I got here.
Also, a little more Korean practice would have come in handy!
Are you planning to teach out here in the near future then? I’d be happy to answer any other questions you have.
I am super inspired that you are eating paleo while teaching in Korea. I find eating paleo is the hardest when I am away from home on work trips and what not but KOREA?! I think you win. Haha.. Who knew they hard ground beef!? I am just a Midwestern American but when I was in Spain for a while.. They had nothing of the sort. Woah.
It can be hard out here for sure, but for me there’s always the reassuring fact that my freezer is like a shrine to frozen meat!
The toughest is avoiding rice/noodles/pasta etc. It’s everywhere! But there are also some great eats to be had. Google Korean BBQ and you will see what I mean!
