There is something magical about arriving in a new city. Everything is new, different and beautiful. It feels as if there are endless possibilities and you are itching to explore. Of course, the first day rush of navigating your way to your accommodation and dragging around heavy bags can hinder this slightly, but I always remember my first days fondly (the only exception being getting lost in Seoul on the first day with a broken suitcase and no sleep- but that’s a story for another time). Unfortunately for me, my first week had a lot of self-inflicted disasters and I’m going to walk you through everything that went wrong and how I’m not letting it affect my trip.
