The Obligatory First Post

Hello,

As with most blogs, there needs to be a first post. I guess I’ll use this first post to introduce a little about what I want to achieve with this blog. I used to blog a lot back in my university days. Usually writing about life, doing food reviews and just anything I wanted. There wasn’t a theme which is how I like it. I won’t be writing about any specific thing on this blog either, rather just update when I feel like it, and anything I felt like sharing.

A little update about my life thus far. I moved to South Korea in August 2015 with my now husband David. It’s been 6 years now and I’ve just renewed by 7th contract. David and I have been together since 2013 and we met at Edinburgh Zoo. He was a supervisor on the catering side of things. We’re also pawrents to Monroe the Dachshund and Chorong the Maltipoo.

David and I got married recently. We were supposed to get married in 2018 with friends and family back home, however things happened and we needed time to think things through. Thankfully, we both got through that stage but due to Covid 19 and getting older, we decided to tie the knot in South Korea.

After a lot of thinking, we decided that getting married was the best thing to do. We had to prepare and work out what the legal way to do it was over here. Lots of language barriers and stuff made it a bit difficult. What we did was go to the British Embassy, get an affidavit for marriage, translate it and go to the city hall in our town. we had to fill in a few forms etc but we got married on august 12th 2021. Hopefully, we will be able to have celebrations in due course. I’ll probably write a blog about how we did it. Maybe it will help some future expats here.

We’ll be getting some wedding photographs taken in October and hopefully have a little celebration with some people here in Korea. We will most likely hold a celebration back home when the time is right.

I feel like I’e gone on for ages now. If you’re still with me, thanks for reading. Hopefully I haven’t bored you with my long story.

  1. Thanks for sharing this – it’s always interesting to hear about people’s life experiences and how they’ve been affected by the pandemic in their decisions. I’m sure there will be lots of books/documentaries about this, eventually! Hopefully you can go on your honeymoon soon and have a lovely relaxing time together xx
