During the summer of 2014 I went to Inha University Summer School. I had a great time. I managed to study economics and technology as well as visit most of the tourist attractions and experience the culture. I passed all of my subjects with A’s.
Going to Korea was a big culture shock to me as the weather was extremely humid and their diet is particularly different to the west. I mostly had rice for breakfast and there was a strange type of food called Kimchi, which I didn’t get used to.
Nonetheless it was a beautiful country with many palaces and temples situated within a major city. I visited both Seoul and Incheon. While staying at the university I managed to make some great friends that I still keep in contact via social media. I made friends from Korea, Germany, USA, Italy, Malaysia, Ukraine and Indonesia to name a few. I would say that studying abroad was a major milestone for me. It was the first time I travelled by myself on a daunting 11 hour journey. However I have to say that it was a very worthwhile experience and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
