A New Beginning

Hi guys,

Thanks for coming to my site! My name is Ryan and I’m a 25 or so old guy just in search of exciting experiences abroad in Korea. Four years ago, I studied abroad there for 6 months at Yonsei University (연세대학교) and enjoyed it so much that I still had withdrawal symptoms throughout my whole time back at home. After doing 1 year of marketing for a startup company, I decided to go back to the other side of the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco and try my hand at living in Seoul.  With a little cash and the ever impending feeling of myself growing too old to do anything exciting, I decided to drop everything and just go for it. I will be pursuing marketing opportunities for South Korean companies that want to improve their English presence. I also started pursuing photography during my last visit in Seoul, so it’s only natural that I would return and try to bring you the best of Korea’s beauty through photography. I will keep you posted with places I visited and all the food (mostly budget because I’m broke lol) I eat, along with any cultural oddities and other interesting things I come across in Korea!

Thanks for visiting!

Here’s some of my photos from my first visit to enjoy in the meantime:
