Happy New Year!
I’ll just go ahead and first start off with an apology for neglecting this blog.
If I’m honest, after moving back home from South Korea, life eventually just got in the way. The excitement I once had to write blog posts was no longer there. I found myself back in the ‘real world’ and it was just not quite as adventurous as the life I was previously living in South Korea. I fortunate enough to have found a job in the field I was pursuing relatively quickly (two weeks after I arrived – yes, I know, I was pretty eager!) and I moved out of my parents house a few weeks after that. It seemed like life was going in the right direction but I just couldn’t help but feel like I was struggling to fit back in to the life I once lived. Life became quite mundane and I lost motivation for the things I used to enjoy (I’ll share more of my reverse culture shock experience in another post).
On a brighter, not so depressing note, since this is the start of a new year and with my goals/areas of personal development at the forefront of my mind, I will be making a conscious effort to blog regularly (I’m very aware that I need to finish off the Thailand series and share my experience travelling to Nigeria!). In addition to sharing my past trips, experience teaching abroad & giving travel tips/recommendations, I will also be focusing on affordable weekend trips for those of us that love to travel but are restricted by the 25 or so days of annual leave we get each year.
Cheers to 2016 and the many adventures it will bring!
