Renewing my Canadian Passport in Busan


Renewing your passport while abroad isn't exactly the smartest course of action.  I had a year and a half left on my passport when I left Canada to teach English in South Korea, but with all the expenses of applying for my visa, getting my fingerprints and background check done, having my degree notarized, etc. I didn't bother applying for a new passport.  You need 6 months + to travel practically anywhere, and if you want to go to China on a multi-entry visa you need at least a year before your passport expires.

Dear Korea #139: It's Not the Size That Counts


The situation in the comic actually happened when I went to visit Seoul sometime last year.

7 English-friendly Korean Clothing Sites

***Hello everyone! If you are new to buying Korean clothing, please read my personal notice.***

* Korean clothes are usually small for non-Asians. Remember that measurement is key and the measurement in Korea is different from anywhere else, especially shoes. Of course measurements vary so remember clothing is in the imperial system. Free size clothing may not work in America but, in Korea free size does work because women body shapes are generally similar. If you have big hips, be aware of them while shopping for pants. Accessories like rings may be too small for many ladies so look out for the ring sizes as well. Please find your shoe size on this website.
