From South Africa to Korea: Claudia and Oliver’s Korean Adventures
09 June, 2011 09:32
I am Claudia and Oliver is my boyfriend. We have been dating since November 2004.
1. Why did you move abroad?
I had been nagging and nagging at Oliver, telling him that I needed to get out see the world. At the time Oliver was working as a photographer at a car magazine (a fantastic job which made him reluctant to leave) and I had just finished my honours at University (which made ever fibre of my body want to leave). I applied for an international scholarship and the day I didn’t get it I was devastated. I marched up to Oliver, who was busily working on photos and merely told him that I was going to teach English in Korea or work as a UN Volunteer and I hoped he would come with me. Without waiting for a response I turned my heels in the other direction and went to sulk. After about fifteen minutes, Oliver slinked into the room and with a smile on his face said “let’s do it” and that is how one of our most amazing journeys ever began!
