Since I am arriving 5 days before orientation I needed to find a place to stay for the duration. Luckily a fellow EPIK person recommended Hong Guesthouse, now known as Kimchi Guesthouse to me. As I was in charge of booking a 4 person bed private room. The rate is 80,000 Won or roughly ($73) a night divided by 4, not so bad!
Finishing packing was very daunting as the suitcases were emptied and rearranged an additional two or three times. In the end I was able to cram my life into two fifty pound suitcases, a carry on bag, a backpack, and a small purse. All of it was heavy as hell.
