The fond farewell

Being in Korea for nearly 10% of my life has been one hell of an experience.  It has given me a perspective on life and the world that could not be had any other way.  Having visited Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia/Singapore, the United Kingdom and obviously South Korea, I learned that it had always been the people you meet that makes the journey memorable.  Oh sure, petting a live tiger in Thailand is pretty freaking awesome, and a tough act to follow, but reality, he never answered his emails or wished me happy birthday…. So, he gets second place to the people I have met.

Saturday night we had our one last blast at a meat buffet place in Jinju called SelfBar.  Basically you grab a plate, pick your own meat, cook it yourself…. no limits. All for a whopping 11,000 won(about $10).  We had a few friends come down from Seoul and it was great.

With 17 people there, we pretty much dominated the place.

Then we went to Starbucks and owned that place too!  Must have been quite a sight for the local Koreans with so many of us all on one place.

Everyone signed a book for us too.

Well, I am writing this from our hotel room by the airport. Tomorrow afternoon we fly back to Canada. Thank you Korea, it has been an experience everyone should have at least once in their lives! Hopefully you won’t make the mistake of ” I didn’t realize how powerful the stove is in the place. I put the kettle on it and… ” “Dude, it’s an electric kettle…”

In any case, our sun sets this land….. I’m sure I’ll always more to write about in my “story” here.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
