Local Nomads Podcast | Episode 4 | Working and Living in (South) Korea [Part 1]

with 2 Comments


Put on your seat belts ladies and gentlemen, we’re going for a ride! In the latest episode of the Local Nomads Podcast, we’re going all the way back to the year 2012. The year we sold off our shit and moved to (South) Korea.

In 2012 we find a version of Adam and Gabby virtually unrecognizable from the ones we know today.

Younger, thinner, and hopelessly unsatisfied with their lives.

Life in NY was rough. High rents, long commutes, and a poor job market left us feeling desperate for ANYTHING else. That’s when we decided to start applying for English teaching jobs.

A year in South Korea was exactly what we needed to kickstart our traveling lives.

In this episode we’ll cover:

Applying for a job in Asia

Visa paperwork  blues

Breaking the news to our families

Downsizing our shit

Tips for surviving a 15 hour flight

Culture shock

Starting our new lives as English teachers
