Hi, I’m Grainne! (pronounced Graw-nya)
I’m 32 years old and I’ve had a crazy few years! I had lived in Korea for over 5 years teaching English. I met my incredible husband there and we later got married in my home country, Ireland.
Afterwards, myself, my husband Jason and our dog Willy moved to Denver Colorado to pursue our dream of living near the Rockies.
While we ended up falling in love with Denver, the job situation was very tough and we just couldn’t find our feet. It was devastating for us but we decided to pick our selves up and move on to the next adventure, Hanoi Vietnam!
Before moving to Korea I was living in Ireland, I had finished my masters degree and the recession was just beginning to hit Ireland. So myself and my friend, Lou, had decided that it was the best time to take some time out and travel. We had both been to Thailand, America and Europe before but had never traveled for longer than a month. So we packed our bags and had an incredible 6 month journey around South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and San Francisco. I had fallen madly in love with Asia while there and when I got back to Ireland I didn’t feel like the same person that left. I was desperate to see more of the world so I applied for a teaching job in Korea. Why Korea? Well to be quite frank, I was completely broke and schools in Korea pay for your flight ticket over and pay a good monthly wage and it’s in Asia so I thought why not?!
I arrived to Korea wondering what the hell was I thinking and had I made the biggest mistake of my life, but after about a day I realized this was not the case. I had the time of my life there, I met my wonderful husband and my adorable pup Willy and countless friends spread across the world.
I’m now hoping to begin a Masters in TESOL early next year.
When I’m not traveling I love to hike, plan mine and other peoples travels, eat delicious food with good friends, read, cook, cycle and go on adventures around where I live. I hope you enjoy this blog,
