Travel Bear: 1 month till Korea!

Oh my GOSH. I have less than one month left till I go to South Korea. This will be my first time over seas and the first time I have seen mt friends in 8 years! It has been way too long since I have gotten to hang out with my friends and I am beyond excited. I thought I would be more nervous the closer I got to the trip but that hasn’t been the case so far, I am just ready to go on this amazing adventure.

So with one month away I only have a few things left to do. I have to call and check my flight schedule with my airline to make sure everything is gravy. I need to order some yen and won to have some pocket cash. Lastly I need to figure out exactly what I will be packing for my two weeks there. I am only going to be taking a carry on to make going around the country easier with all the public transportation.

Thankfully my bank has zero foreign transaction fees, so that is awesome. I will only be taking about $150 in cash and will be able to pull out more along the way if need be. Alot of the markets and street stalls may only take cash so I want to make sure I am prepared.

I have reserved all my hotels for the trip and holy moly, you can get hotels in Korea for super cheap. I got 7 nights at 4 different hotels for about $350 which is like two nights at a Holiday Inn here in the U.S.. I picked out some really cute and simple rooms in the areas I know I will be spending alot of time, such as Myeongdong, Insadong and near Lotte World.

My best friend there told me she will be making a map with the easiest lines to take from one place to another around Seoul and to Gwangju where I will be staying with her for a few days.

I will be posting more about my travel prep soon. Do you have any advice for me? Let me know in the comments! Also check out my Youtube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzB9qRWcOrIGnVskSTITqmQ for my travel vlogs from Korea when I go.
