It's hard to believe, but my time in Korea is coming to a close! I'll be out of here by the end of next month, and the year and a half I've spent here will become "something I did" as opposed to "something I'm doing." It's all a little daunting. Bittersweet, definitely. So many wonderful, interesting people I've been able to connect with here - I will miss. All the things I've been able to see, experience, take in - I will miss!
Our program took the departing scholars on a farewell trip to Jeju this semester. I was so glad I got to see it before leaving the country! It was mid-December, so up north there was still snow on the ground. It was pretty amazing stepping off the plane in Jeju and being welcomed with much milder temperatures. I'd really like to go back some time in the spring though. More beautiful I bet.
We were put up in a really nice resort and shuttled around different sights around the island. Sunrise Peak, which was breathtaking, was definitely my favourite. Lots of very tourist-y activities followed, including the aquarium, rail biking, ice museum, and trick art museum.
