Must Do Experiences While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Fri, Jan 16, 2015 @ 12:35 PM

My three years teaching in Korea were, to put it simply, amazing. My return to the States in November has made me reflect on my time in Korea, analyzing and reminiscing about every facet of my expat life. As a way to neatly conclude my blogging duties here, I'll be posting a three part series on these reflections. This first part is inspired by my recent posts about my favorite adventures of 2014, opening that topic up even more to become a list of my all-time favorite activities to do in Korea during my three years of living and teaching there -- ones that you absolutely cannot miss during your time abroad...

Weekend Beach Getaway on Muui Island

I haven't spent nearly enough time exploring the islands in my area, so I decided that I needed to make up for lost time. The long weekend for the Chuseok holiday seemed like a perfect opportunity to spend time on a beach, so some friends and I headed off to Muuido, one of Incheon's most popular islands, for some quality relaxation time.

During my recent trip to Jeju for Lunar New Year, my tour group also spent some time on Udo, a small island just off Jeju's eastern coast. I hadn't heard much about this island before going there, so I was pleasantly surprised to realize it was a highlight of the weekend and that I definitely want to go back when I'm next on Jeju!
