Welcome! I’m glad you stopped by.
I’m Linda, a travel-obsessed girl in her early 20s, currently living in South Korea. How did I end up here? Well, I moved here for love. In 2013, I met Jeongsu, a good-looking and smart exchange student, at university in San Diego. After a year in a long-distance relationship, we decided to break the distance and I moved to Cheongju in South Korea.
But my story doesn’t begin there.
I grew up in Germany to a German mother and American father. Growing up in Europe, I had the opportunity to start traveling to many countries at a young age and having a parent from a different continent ensured travel overseas. This is how I became interested in distant countries and started to learn French and Spanish in school.
Then came the moment when I decided that I wanted to see more: I wanted to go east!
I started studying Mandarin Chinese and moved to Guangzhou, China, to do an internship for 6 months in 2012. I loved it so much that I decided to come back after finishing my Bachelor’s degree in California.
And this is when love happened.
Even though I had already met Jeongsu, I decided to follow my dream and return to China to live there for a year – and then I would move to South Korea!
I started blogging when I lived in China (Linda Living in China) and love to share what it’s like to live in Asia, embrace Asian culture and be in an intercultural relationship!
