Half a year in Korea
The expression is true: time sure does fly (when you’re having fun or something like that, right?). I’ve had both good and bad days on Jeju and in Korea, in general, but overall, it’s been an incredibly positive experience. I’m now more than halfway through my teaching contract in South Korea and, to celebrate, I thought I’d share some highs from the last few months.
First of many Jeju sunsets
Getting a J back
Diva-like behavior at an abandoned movie set
First Buddha belly rub in Daegu
The Jeju Fire Festival: a yearly ceremony in which a massive oreum is set alight
A windy stab at paddleboarding..for free!
Amazing hiking along the Olle trails
Murder on a Mystery Island
Looking sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two on Udo Island
My drunken footballers having a sleep
My team squading up at the charity volleyball tournament
I think I’d live there just for the fun of saying Jeju ?
Any plans for after your contract there is up?
Loose plans so far!
Cool photos – the fire festival one is definitely my fave ?
Thanks! It was great fun.
Aw you came to Daegu, that’s where I am! Was the Buddha belly rub on Palgongsan? I’ve been meaning to do that hike. And you are SO lucky you can play beach volleyball! Makes me miss Santa Barbara where we could go out and play any time of year. Looks like an amazing half a year! ?
I just stumbled across your blog and I’m hooked. I’m curious to see what you do after Korea. I am finishing the last few months of a year here and trying to decide what to do next! I love it here, but I feel the next adventure awaits! I like the idea of hitchhiking around Europe for a while, but I’m not sure how safe it would be for a solo female – you were lucky to a have lovely man to travel with you… where can I find one? ?
Haha head for Europe and find a romantic!
