Introducing a new series here at Airfrov, whereby we look to highlight and help you guys to get to know some of the awesome Airfrov travellers who have contributed in fulfilling many of your requests!
In this weeks edition, we have Annabel (username the same name), who to this date has fulfilled a whopping 1847 requests of items predominantly from Korea. She well and truly has earned her recognition as a Super Traveller and is one of the most reliable and efficient travellers on the whole of the platform.
We had the chance to ask her a few questions to help you get to know her better. Here’s what she had to say:
Tell us a bit about yourself and your interests?
Well, I’m a full time housewife and your personal shopper?! Haha. I love exercising but shopping seems to be my only form of exercise these days. I live in Seoul and free most of the time to shop for you!
What takes you to South Korea so frequently?
I was in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend, now husband, back then so I make frequent trips to Korea to meet him. I’m staying in Korea now that we’re married.
What made you want to get involved in Airfrov in the first place?
A friend recommended Airfrov to me just before one of my trips to Korea in 2015. I thought it was a great way to occupy my free time in Korea while my husband was at work. And I got addicted. It’s fun to shop for people although it isn’t good for my pocket 😛 After using Airfrov frequently I then converted into a LINE and Kakao Friends fan! And now a Kpop Fan of WANNA ONE HAHAHA. I did not have any idea who they were until the innisfree x Wanna one requests trending on Airfrov.
What are some of the strangest/coolest items that you have completed a request for?
There’s nothing particularly strange but the coolest item might be the Samsonite Kakao Friends Ryan luggage which I would be assisting.
However, I would like to share some of the toughest requests I’ve assisted are the Starbucks Collection, innisfree x Wanna One posters, and BTS Money. It’s not easy getting those items as it requires a lot of time, effort and sweat. I hope requesters would consider these factors when requesting.
What items do you think some of our requesters would love from Korea?
Line Friends and Kakao Friends are always launching new cutesy items for both kids and adults so everyone should check them out occasionally!!!
How has your experience been with Airfrov as a traveler?
It’s been an awesome experience as I’m blessed to have met really nice (most of them) requesters in the past two years and I’ve forged friendship with a handful of them too. And what else can I say to the Airfrov team. They have been so helpful and great in service. Thanks for creating this app and allow us to shop for the world!
So there you have it! Hopefully our interview with Annabel has provided you with some insights into her experience as a traveler in Korea.
