Going Back to Seoul

On Saturday, August 15th we will be heading back to Seoul. We have spent about a month and a half in Minnesota having a great time. Partying on the 4th of July weekend, going to Rockfest, having fun at the lake and of course having bonfires and taking saunas. It has been a whirlwind of fun.

But now it’s time to leave the Western world and dive back into Asian culture for another year. We will be teaching at a new school and living in a different area than before. This time, we will be much closer to the metro area (which we’re really excited about). We will be working for a school called iSponge which is a franchise. They are opening a brand new location which means we will be the only foreign teachers for a little while! I suppose this could go both ways, hopefully it’s a really good thing :)

We will be departing Minneapolis on our way to Chicago and spend 6 hours there, then depart and arrive in Seoul Monday, August 17th 5am local time. It’s going to be a looooong travel time (14hrs in a cramped seat!)

When we get there and have our internet setup the plan is to get a few blog posts up per week. So keep checking in for the latest on interesting places, good eats and other quirky things we find!

Below are a few pictures of Krista’s mom’s place, which is where we stayed this last month and a half.

Thank you for the great time in the States, we’ll see everyone next year!

Hello -

My name is Marie and my fiance's name is Nick. We have just come to Seoul to teach for a year, we are living in Hwaejung (on the 3 line, just two stops away from Ilsan Lake Park). I found your blog while looking up some info for Seoul and it seems we have a lot in common!

I just wanted to tell you that we appreciate all the awesome information of all your fabulous travels so far and that we hope your next year in Seoul is a fun one!

We are also recently engaged, loved skydiving and have a passion for travel. We are also teaching at a franchised school called Korea Poly School.

I just wanted to say hi to some fellow travelers :)
