Korea: Heading Home

It's that time again. I'm heading back home. What's strange about heading home is that Korea has now become home. I caught myself several times in conversation referencing Korea as home.

It's been a good trip. Too short in some ways but not soon enough to get back to work. It's difficult to spend money when you know there's a limited supply on the budget. When that amount dips close to your reserves it's time to start stacking the cheddar.

I've got a room in an apartment worked out through a website called I'll have to take some pictures and show you what sort of living arrangements I'll be in. In previous years the school or academy that employed me took care of living arrangements. I've opted to find my own living quarters and from that location find a job.

I'll be living in Itaewon neighborhood which is in a central location in Seoul. It is very foreigner friendly and inhabited by many expats from many different countries.

Being back in the states has been great. There will be a few things that I'll miss. Those things are worth the trade of living abroad in a different country. So, begins my journey back home with my flight departure on Thursday the 30th of July.
