Korea! I don’t think I have ever spent this much money on food in my life. Luckily for me, I was getting free accommodation most of the time. In Seoul I taught English in exchange for a bed. Included in this deal I was also able to eat rice, ramen, and kimchi for free! I “saved” a ton of money being in Seoul, which is great because I went over budget in Japan. I could have gone to the extreme to be cheap in Korea but I splurged many times on food and also sweaters because I am weak.
My big purchases during my time in Korea were:
- Tour on Jeju Island
- Italian pizza in Seoul
- Domestic flights and hotels
- SIM card
I spent a total of $1184.15 in approximately seven weeks, on average $23.22 a day. Pretty good considering I bought two flights and a fancy tour! Here is exactly what I spent my money on:
I spent a bit on health this month, got deathly ill my last week in Seoul and had to cave and buy medicine!
