Alone is good. I like to travel alone. There is this freedom that you get when you explore things on your own. You get to reflect, meditate, waste time, be quick, be slow, whatever. You only have to answer to YOU. Isn’t that a wonderful and beautiful feeling? We don’t get to experience that often so I like to take advantage of it when I can. Besides you can meet wonderful and beautiful travelers like yourself ^__^
Have your wits about you. If it feels too good to be true…IT IS. I could tell you I learned that the hard way in Athens, Greece. Not following your gut can get you ripped off and taken advantage of.
Anyhow you are not coming all this way to be a punk and stay in your hostel. Ask the locals where they like to eat and ask the foreigners where they like to party. Korea is a pretty safe country…so you don’t have to worry about getting robbed, stabbed, and all that jazz.
Just REMEMBER THIS the trains and busses stop running early on weekends. They will spit you out wherever and you will have to catch a cab. Always carry the address of the place you are staying on you. In English And in Korean.
Hey :0) I’m glad you enjoy my blog. I’m just throwing things against the wall in hopes that something sticks. GF! Don’t put it off too long, (teaching in Korea) many of us expect that these programs won’t be so numerous in the future. You gotta get the gettin’ while the gettin’ is good!
GET THE GETTIN’ WHILE THE GETTIN’ IS GOOD!!!!!!!!!!
This is how we do it!
- What exactly do you mean?
- I don’t know what you’re talking about….
On our way to the Poconos….ha ha ha. Syke! First snowboarding trip in Korea. What I love about living in Korea is that the expat lifestyle affords you the opportunity to do activities you might not have had back home!
Icheon Teacher (via niueaninkorea)
I saw the letter with the list of schools not re-contracting their Engrish teachers. But this I believe is just for Gimpo. My co-teacher said that there is a 1% chance I could stay. The principals, teachers, and parents went to City Hall with pitchforks and torches. But now….I’m kinda like…Seoul is sounding mighty nice.
My co-teacher walked over to my desk.
"You know I haven’t been able to sleep."
"I’ve been having nightmares that I’m going to have to teach 6th grade next year."
A wild laugh escaped me. No one wants to teach next years 6th grade hellians, and I mean NO ONE. I just imagine all of the teachers crouched in a corner, sweating profusely as they pull their straws of fate.
