So here we have it. My husband, Raj, got his dream job – at least that is what we hope it is – and it is based in South Korea. Not being overly, shall we say, career-focused, myself, it seemed like a great time for us to up and leave our London home and settle down to a new life in Songdo – him ensuring the existence of a planet for generations to come, and me generally pottering around – keeping house, exploring and starting (and likely quitting and re-starting) new hobbies.

As a picture often conveys a thousand words (I do like a good cliche) you can follow me on Instagram @ishwarya and Twitter @ishwaryalr

ed. August 2017: I recently missed someone asking to get in touch with me about life in Songdo via Twitter and so to prevent that happening again, I have a new email address for those of you wanting more information: londonerinsongdo@gmail.com – I look forward to hearing from you πŸ™‚

All thoughts, opinions and tips are my own and whilst your comments are welcome, please be kind – writing is not my forte but I do like to talk…

  1. Thank you so much for this blog. It is a great source of information and welcome for me. My husband will also work for GCF and I hope to meet you after the summer. / Sissi


    1. You’re welcome – my goal was to make one person’s move here easier than mine so I’m really pleased that you’re finding it useful. Looking forward to meeting you when you are settled!
