Well folks, this is it. In 10 days, I continue my journey to South Korea. Yes, yes, I said continue. This has been a long time coming and I'm so excited!! Lemmie provide some background for those who's initial response was "huh, what, when did this happen?"...lol.
I've always wanted to travel. I believe it's in my blood and starting now am creating a life where I can work, live and travel anywhere I desire. After graduating high school, I'd hoped to take a year off and travel around Europe. Sadly, I wasn't able to. Now, many years later, the desire is as strong if not stronger than ever, and this time...I'm not going to let anything get in the way.
I've been praying about this for quite some time and God has been opening doors I never thought possible. He's been guiding me every step of the way. While I'm about to travel halfway around the world to all new EVERYTHING, I'm at peace because I know I'm supposed to do this and more importantly, God's with me wherever I go. I'll explain more of the process at a later date...you'll have to stay tuned ;)
So, details right?? As mentioned, I leave in 10 days, August 24, 2012. I'll be away for the next year and hope to travel to several different countries and cities in Asia while I'm there. I'll have a small apartment and no car (oh I'm gonna miss my baby). I'll be teaching English to children in an elementary public school in Seoul, South Korea. Love the little ones, not too fond of the older ones...lol. I'm excited to learn Korean, try new foods, and navigate my way around a new city.
It's hard to put into words all that I'm feeling and experiencing but I'm making a commitment to keep this blog going. This will be my "lifeline" home to and with all of you. I'm asking you to please read, comment and during those times when I'm so homesick it hurts, encourage. Don't let me give up. Don't let me stop writing.
As you may notice, on the left side of my blog is a Bucket List. What's that for? Well, I'm glad you asked. I want to make sure I take full advantage of this next year and I want to share this experience with you. Do some research, check some things out. If you find something awesome you think I should do, see, experience, taste...lol...post it to the Bucket List. I'll make sure to do as much as I can (within reason ppl) and send you back photos and of course, a story.
Please also note that this blog may not always be presented in proper English. Rest assured, English is my first language, and I'm an excellent teacher but this is a blog. I'm able to write for many different forums...wink, wink.
Until next time...
