Coco Busan started as a little idea in my mind 2.5 years ago in Edmonton, Alberta, when I decided to leave Canada on my own and venture to Korea.
Once I published my first post (and received comments in a matter of minutes), I realized the power of connecting instantly to people through my writing. In the two years I lived in Korea, this blog has been both an anchor to and expression of my creativity, and a continual link to my friends and family at home and around the world.
Thank you to all of you who read my posts and scrolled through my photos, whether it was once or every time I published. Your views and comments inspired my to continue writing even during times when my Korea routine and teaching schedule felt stagnant. The novelty of receiving instant feedback from both friends and strangers has never worn off; I still get excited when a new comment appears after I’ve stayed up way to late (again!) to publish a post.
I am writing this from Delhi, and tomorrow night will board a train to Rajasthan. I hope you’ll join me at my brand-new blog, Free Bird, where I’ll be sharing words, images and video clips to document my 15-week journey through India, Indonesia, and Cambodia.
Korea: Thank you for two years of writing and photographic inspiration!
