So for Chuseok break (aka Korean Thanksgiving), my girl Crystal and I decided to hop a ferry and go to the island for a long weekend!! BEST DECISION EVER. Korea had kind of been getting me down, what with the spitting and staring and rain and homesickness (see: August sucked), so I needed some SUNSHINE and GIRL TIME. And I got both, in loads!
Sometimes I get so lonely and think about moving home. Then I take a ferry to Jeju and eat veggie donkatsu and sit on a black sand beach and eat fish and chips and jam with the owner and write a song and enter into a family of wanderers at a guesthouse on the bay and eat lobster and drink soju and go snorkeling and eat live conch and get freckles.
And it all makes sense.
This expat life. I just can't get enough. Will I ever move home? I don't know. Will I leave Korea soon? Probably. I don't know.
But for now?
Happy Korean Thanksgiving.
