The Return to Korea: Part 3

We spent most of our summer vacation on Jeju Island, the popular tropical getaway south of the main peninsula.

The Return to Korea: Part 1

Korea is the birthplace - or at the very least, the raison d'ĂȘtre - of this blog. It's the country where I met the love of my life, the country where I lived for a year and a half, and the country where I learned about a fascinating culture, and experienced a wealth of sights and festivities, including mud festivals, pink mountains, penis parks, palaces, puppy cafes, and excursions across the North Korean border. It was never our plan to return, but when we realised Korea would be one of the easier places to get my American green card, we started applying for teaching jobs immediately, and before we knew it, our planes were booked and we were all set for another year in this awesome country.
