Before The Traveling Kimchi was The Traveling Kimchi, she was just a girl named Jessica that I met in my first Korean class back in 2011. Little did I know that she would become a great friend AND fellow blogger years later. We met again in 2013– when I went to Korea last winter. We had an amazing time at my favorite bar– Bunker, my last night there.
Recently, I found out that she’s been blogging about her adventures in South Korea, too, so I knew that I had to introduce her to you and share her adventures with you, too!
The Traveling Kimchi
“Who is the Traveling Kimchi?” Why, she’s a tiny half Korean-Irish American currently living in Seoul, South Korea! After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin the Traveling Kimchi decided it was time to explore her roots! Since her arrival in 2012 she has been blogging about her experiences not only in Korea but all of her adventures abroad. She hopes you will enjoy traveling along with her and are inspired to pick up your own passport and see a culture and world beyond your own.”

In addition, The Traveling Kimchi and westerngirleasternboy might be two very different blogs by two very different people, but we share the same exact mission: “… to encourage thinking openly, meeting new people, having lifetime experiences, and traveling abroad.”
The Traveling Kimchi is on Youtube, and I wanted to share this cover she did with you all since it IS Sunday morning! By now, we probably all need a little pick me up before the week starts, so here it is.
She has a lot of other great videos on everything from her adventures in Korea and Thailand to her favorite beauty products to what to do BEFORE you come to Korea, so be sure to check them out!
For some of us, “rain is falling.” For some of us, it’s Easter, and we’re with our families– celebrating what should be a day that is less about hunting for eggs and more about hunting for something else. For some of us, though, it’s just another Sunday– the Sunday before our last week of school… ever.
(That would be me!)
So, I’ll be watching Korean dramas and trying to write and edit my final papers! My last year of law school is coming to a close, and I can’t wait to start working, traveling, and living. I might even get to see The Traveling Kimchi again sooner than either of us thought!
