Today was perfectly fabulous, a day spent doing all the things I love best: running, coffee, chatting and thinking about traveling. In a little over two months time we will be saying goodbye to Korea and heading home, but not before a whirlwind voyage around Asia. While leaving Korea, our students and our new friends will be sad, the promise of adventure has me thrilled. The plans are still in the works, but as of our most recent decision, we will be visiting Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and India throughout October. I am so excited about this, particularly for India. I am not sure why, and I am not sure when, but visiting India is one of my lifelong dreams and now we are going to do it. Woot!!
In the mean time, before we finish our year in Korea, we will be visiting the vacation and honeymoon hotspot of the country, Jeju Island, next week during our mini summer vacation. I am looking forward to some time to rejuvenate, a break from the city and to learning about all of the amazing stories that surround the island. A history of female ocean divers, three brothers who founded the island and the grandfather guardians has me intrigued to be sure. Now, we just have to cross our fingers that the tsunami growing off the coast decides to go away so our first time traveling by ferry isn’t too nauseating!
