Hi! I’m Bridgett a.k.a. The Naked Foreigner. I’m a writer, photographer and English teacher based in Daegu, South Korea. Growing up in Indiana, I’d always wanted to live abroad, so in 2012 I left my job as a newspaper reporter and moved to South Korea to teach English for a year. Since then, traveling and documenting my experiences through writing and photography have been my passions. In addition to navigating a foreign culture and language, I’ve had the opportunity to explore the country as well as travel to Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam.

My one-year adventure has turned into two years going on three. After tying the knot last spring, my husband, Chris and our beagle, Clark, joined me. We are currently enjoying our first year as newly weds abroad!

Since I arrived in South Korea, I’ve found myself naked in more ways than one. All foreigners are naked in some sense of the word, whether it’s losing their clothes, losing their ability to communicate, losing their way or losing their minds. Travel has a way of stripping people down. It can be disorienting, but leaving behind the familiar leads to the best stories and greatest adventures.

I started this blog as a sort of postcard to home, but I hope it will be helpful to anyone who is finding their way in Korea.

Happy Exploring,

    As a fellow foreigner in Daegu, I look forward to reading through all your posts! It’s always nice to find a “familiar” someone nearby. 🙂

    I have only been inn Korea a few weeks but in Japan for some years, so I can relate to that for sure. You just cannot fit in, no matter how well you speak the language. Makes you appreciate home so much more!
