Bring on 2016! Top 3 Achievable Goals While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Tue, Jan 05, 2016 @ 03:30 PM

With 2015  having just ended, and the new year has just begun, it's that time of year when people start reflecting on the past year and figuring out what improvements they can make in the New Year. For us ESL teachers, our lives teaching abroad do not always have to depend on the present moment, and we too can make some New Year resolution goals that can set us on an even better course that feels progressive and inspiring. Here are 3 goals that I believe are acheivable for all while teaching in Korea in the New Year.

Namsan Seoul Tower

Posted on Thu, Feb 09, 2012 @ 10:44 AM

One of the most famous tourist sites in Korea is the Namsan Seoul Tower. From the outlook you have a panoramic view of the city, and it is especially beautiful at sunset. Neil and I visited Namsan on New Years Eve. We took the metro to Myeong-dong station and left from exit 3. We walked to the place where we could take a cable car up, (a round trip ticket is 8,000 won). Getting to the cable car is a fast way of getting up to the tower, but if you’re going on it to get a look at some scenery, I’m not entirely sure if it is worth it because we were packed like sardines in there! 

There were so many pictures to take once we reached Namsan Tower! Unfortunately, I don’t have any good sunset pictures from the peak as it happened to be really muggy that day. However, I still have some interesting ones of these locks that you will find up there. Couples from all over come to this place to declare their love for each other with the symbol of a lock, promising that they will never break up. It’s a bizarre concept considering love is supposed to set you free, but nonetheless a cute thing to do with your special someone. My cousin was the one who recommended it to me to do with Neil while he was here. My cousin even said that he has more than one lock up there somewhere, each with a different girlfriend! I made fun of him for it, and will probably never let him live that down...
