Sorry, had to 😀
Wait…Wait!! Here comes the chorus!! VACATION…ALL I EVER WANTED!! VACATION..HAVE TO GET AWAY!!!!!
So, being in a hagwon (private school), I kinda get pretty minimal vacation days…in exchange for smaller class sizes. I get 10 days off + all public holidays. (Um..Korea, you need to add more holidays to your list…and stop making them on the weekends! grrr! You’re a bunch of crazies!)
Anyway, here are my current vacationing plans:
Japan: during Korea’s harvest festival in Sept/October
I have a friend teaching in Japan and I want to come visit her 🙂 And we can go to Tokyo Disney! 😀
Beijing, China: 3 day weekend (Thanks Buddha!)–this will be a back-to-back non-stop weekend of sight-seeing. I’ve heard that it can be done, and that yes, it’s basically a crash-course for Beijing, but you can easily see all the main stuff in 3 days.
(Thanks to excellent public transportation! Gr…we need this in America. Get with it. Gosh…we’re so sad.)
I have so much more on my list (while I’m on this side of the globe) and just not enough time to see it all:
Australia (I know it’s far…I want to go so bad. Perhaps after my contract is up…)
Anyway, that’s two updates in one night…probably going to go read and then head to bed.
Edit: Well, honestly, those places and general travel around Korea will be enough to keep me very happy 🙂
Are you sure you don’t want to come teach in Korea?? It’s pretty nice once you start to get settled in 🙂
