5 more days in Korea!
Our time is quickly ticking away in our last 5 days and there is barely time to reflect on the past year amid all the frantic packing and closing of our affairs. When I’m not having anxiety attacks I’ve been thinking about what a wonderful year it’s been and all the amazing people I had the chance to meet. When first deciding to pack up my Miami life and move to Korea for a year, I was hoping for a life changing experience that would result in an undeniable epiphany on what I wanted out of life. As most find out who hope for that, it did not occur. What did occur were small, eye-opening experiences and encounters that started to change the way you look at the world and the life you can imagine for yourself. Living abroad seemed so daunting only a year ago, but now it’s something I know I can do and enjoy.
For the first time in my life I have absolutely no plan and no vision for where I’ll be 6 months from now, but that’s ok. If there’s anything I learned from living in South Korea for a year it’s to not have any expectations and just take life as it comes.
So thanks Korea for all your valuable lessons and for all the wonderful people I otherwise would have never met. I’ll never forget it.
And of course the year wouldn’t have been the same without the endearing, mischievous kiddies and great teachers I worked with all year, so here’s a little video with some highlights:
Even though I don’t have a plan for 6 months from now, we do have a plan for the next two! Coming this Saturday we will be leaving for our most epic traveling adventure yet, venturing through Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. Hopefully we’ll have the chance to post updates along the way, so stay tuned, and if you’ll be in that corner of the world in March and April let us know!
To all those in the US, see you April 24th!!!!!!
