“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.” Aldous Huxley

After months of pouring over impressively well-written Korean travel blogs, I am surprised at how nervous I am to start my own. But oh well, here we go!

What I know now:

* I will be arriving in Korea within the next 2 weeks. I am still waiting for my visa code & have yet to purchase my flights. My recruiter does not seem too worried, so I guess I shouldn’t be either.

* I will train in Seoul for a week before traveling to Uijungbu (also spelled Uijeongbu) where I will live & teach for the year.

* I need to PACK!

“When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.” Susan Heller

Cheers for now,
