I always wanted to buy a one-way ticket to the unknown. When I finally saved my money and did just that five years ago, my life changed forever.

Getting to actually move to Korea is a process and one must have the patience of a saint to get through it. Somehow, I did it all within one month. Here are the steps and recommendations I have for moving to Korea to teach ESL.
