Karla Obispo of Travel with Karla
Iâ€™ve been teaching in Seoul, Korea since August 2015. Itâ€™s quite easy for me to deal with the teaching load here compared to what Iâ€™ve experienced in Philippines so I had a lot of free time after work. It was January 2016 when I decided to travel once a week. I started blogging to make a journal about my adventures. I made this blog in March 2016 and the rest is history!
In the beginning, all my posts are about the usual tourist spots located in Seoul. Since Iâ€™ve been there many times, I tried to take the roads less traveled by. My love for Korean Dramas made me go to the filming locations. Surprisingly, it became a big help to other Korean drama fans who are planning to visit Korea. My travel blog became their inspiration and guide in their fangirling activities. Iâ€™ve been here in Korea for almost two years and before I go, I want to feature someÂ Filipino bloggers in Korea.
PS. I swear, Iâ€™ll visit Korea every year to make some awesome K Drama itineraries!

I started blogging in 2014 but I wasn’t really an active blogger. I only write when I have spare time before.
