Matt and Alli have always been responsible, but they’ve never liked following the herd. They got the travel bug early on and have been to 11 countries each, most of them with each other. They dreamed of living in another country, but just never pulled the trigger. After working for 10 years as an engineer and a journalist, respectively, they realized that they had their whole lives to work but that they might not always have the desire and opportunity to take the risk and move abroad. So at 31, they quit their jobs and moved to South Korea to teach English with the EPIK program. This is their blog chronicling their adventures in Korea.

Update 2019: We left Korea in 2014 and traveled for a bit before landing back in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We have a new blog, http://www.familyseekingadventure.com, which chronicles our family travels with our 2-year-old daughter. Please check that out if you are interested in family travel. There are, of course, several posts about Korea, since that is one of our favorite places. We have been back twice since we moved away – in 2015 and in 2018 for the Winter Olympics!

A few posts about Korea are:

  1. Dear Alli,

    My name is Joyce and I work for ExpatFinder.com.
    ExpatFinder.com is a free one stop website for people preparing to move or working and living overseas. We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
    We quite enjoy your blog about living in South Korea, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
    The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
    Thanks in advance and do let me know if you prefer other means to conduct this interview and we would be happy to accommodate your terms.

    Best regards,

    • Joyce: My apologies I never responded to this! After we left Korea, we didn’t keep this blog up much and so I actually just saw this 5 years later. We do have another blog now, called Family Seeking Adventure about our family travels!
