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 🙂

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…

  4. Thank you so much! This really helped me get a better view on moving to Songdo (moving this sunday!) – May I trouble you for the contact information of your trainer? Hope to see you around!


    1. Hi Eryn! Welcome to Songdo (almost!!) I’d be most happy to share Bryce’s (my trainer’s) contact details – do you have an email address I could send his mobile number and email address to? Or you can email me at londonerinsongdo@gmail.com if you don’t want to write your details here and I’ll reply to you ASAP. See you in Songdo!
