Goodbye Busan, it’s back to Seoul (and reality). My final week in Korea was certainly bittersweet – I felt as though I would be leaving when I had only just settled in.

Animal activism has been a big passion of mine ever since I was a junior in high school. My excitement then came as no surprise when my feature on animal welfare finally went to print!

My second week in Dubai coincided with the end of Ramadan- meaning it is time to say Eid Mubarak!
Most United Arab Emirates employees get at least a week off for the pre, during, and post-Eid celebrations. We didn’t get the week off at the Gulf News but we did get a four-day weekend starting Wednesday. Not bad!

My second week at The Korea Herald was a fairly quiet one, as I settled down into a comfortable routine. I usually went straight home as I was exhausted after work (unless my colleague Francesca wanted to do something) and filled my weekends with sightseeing adventures. Despite the tourist element, I’m definitely starting to feel like a local.
