THE JOURNEY BEGINS: I started taking myself way too seriously after writing my last post. Hah! I almost forgot that these tidbits aren’t meant to be overly serious. It is important to communicate thoughts outside your immediate family. Not being able to leads to domestic problems. It’s pretty common in places like this. A lot of drinking.
Don’t get me wrong. I love the expat life. It’s not the life for everyone, but it’s the life for me. I’ve been “away from home” since 2002, and I’ve never actually thought about moving “back home”. Well that’s not true. Now that I have a kid, the idea to move back to Toronto is floating around. I’m not entirely stoked, but more on that later. I’ve got a bedframe to move at some point before dinner prep.
In 2002, a friend of mine called me from Seoul and asked me if I would be interested in teaching ESL at the school he worked at. Seven days later I was on a plane bound for Incheon, and so began my expat journey.
