About

Hi! I'm Kerri.

Welcome to my blog. I hope you can find inspiration for travel and life as an expat from my words.

I first joined the ranks of the solo backpackers of the world in 2006. Travelling around Europe showed me just how much I had to learn, how much I had to grow, how much I loved being in a new place. It also turned me into a traveller for life, as I realized anyone can make their dreams come true, and anyone can travel if they want to. I now work to travel, and visit somewhere new with every chance I have. Be it a weekend road trip to a nearby beach, or a three-week trip through Transylvania, or a five-month trip through South America, I'm travelling with every chance I have.

I now consider myself an expatriate, as I have been travelling and living abroad for 6 years. My current home is in Toronto, Ontario. I am planning on returning to South Korea, where I've lived happily for 4 of the last 6 years, soon. When in Korea, I work as an English language teacher at the university level. I find living and working in Korea stimulating everyday, and the challenges that come with living abroad make it all the more worthwhile.

2006 was not only the year I became a traveller, but it was also the year I joined the YouTube community as a vlogger. I now regularly film and edit videos about learning the Korean language, daily life in Korea as a foreigner, dating in Korea, as well as travel vlogs when I'm on the road. I'm grateful to have over 15,000 subscribers to my channel (

I am also very active on Twitter, and I respond quickly to tweets. You can also "Like" and follow Expatkerri on Facebook.

If you would like to ask me something, the two best ways to contact me are to tweet short questions, or to send longer questions as Facebook messages.

Thank you for joining me as I continue to travel cities all over the world and live every day with gratitude.

  2. I just found your blog, I saw your video of the reasons why you love korea and I said to my self "This is a very special person!" , I'm from SouthAmerica, and I always loved traveling and languages and eversince little I've had a special adoration towards Asian culture!

    I think If I had the chance I could go there and live happy the rest of my life!

    Your blogs are an inspiration and I also appreciate the fact that you share so much for your feelings sometimes on your posts - like the one about your special person and perhaps having to decide between Korea alone or Japan with him.. That entry really touched and It is a very human point of view of things that happen in life sometimes that make us dig deep within ourselves to try and find out what is it what we actually want from our actual core and we end up just leaving it all up to the universe to move the puzzles together for the better of it - if it has to be, it will be!

    I subscribed to your channel and I hope you keep posting new things! Thank you again for sharing all those wonderful things with the world so that people like me, can also feel like traveling while reading/seeing you!

    All the best luck to you!!

  6. Hi Kerri. Are you back in Korea now? I am drafting a proposal for the Boren Fellowship to move there for a year starting in January of 2015. I just started teaching myself basic Korean phrases and I look forward to purchasing the survival Korean book you recommended.
