Torontonians in South Korea

I got a job in South Korea (woohoo!) and now I’m dealing with having to apply for the visa. I’m super confused about what exactly it is the Toronto consulate needs in terms of my background check. 

My recruiter wants both the original background check and the photocopy that was notarized and stamped by the Korean consulate. 

But don’t I need the photocopy for the visa application? I’ve called the Toronto consulate, but the guy wasn’t exactly sure what it was I needed. 

On another note, will my contract have a visa issuance number or not?

Gourmet Tapas Tour with Insider’s Madrid

My Gourmet Tapas Tour with Insider’s Madrid #Madrid #FoodTour

**My food tour experience detailed in this post was a complimentary tour offered to me by Insider’s Madrid. However, all opinions expressed are solely my own.**

Having lived in central Madrid for almost two years, I have been to plenty of  restaurants and tabernas. That said, I’m always on the look out for another great dining experience. Fortunately for me, I was invited to join a Gourmet Tapas…

The Job Search Continues

I got an email from my recruiter that I wasn’t chosen for the school in Suwon. I’m a bit bummed that I didn’t get it but whatever. I just want to have a job lined up before I leave Spain.

Speaking of which, I finally got my ticket and will be leaving Madrid on July 31st. It’s the first time I’ll be in Toronto during the summer since 2012. While I’m very excited to see family and friends (and for them to finally meet Sergio), the next 4 weeks are going to be tough. I have to pack and rent out my apartment, work at a camp and also play tour guide when my cousin comes at the end of the month.
