Anyong Haseyo Part I

Here are some cool and not so cool things that I did in Korea…..

#1/5) I ACTUALLY WENT TO KOREA

OK, so I know that I can be a little random, but deciding to go to Korea in a three week span took the cake. After finally getting a Visa from our Korean Consulate in Montreal, and a ticket confirmation number from Camp Korea, I set off on a 15 hour combined plane ride to Seoul, South Korea (1 hour to Toronto and 14 hours direct to Seoul).

But why South Korea? Why not?

I needed some international experience if I were to ever get an internship with Oxfam Quebec and the opportunity just presented itself.

From Incheon International airport, a camp representative picked us up (me and the other 6 Canadian teachers) and took us to Hallym University in Chun Cheon, South Korea, where we were to spend the next four weeks. Chun Cheon is about a two hour train ride out of Seoul.

We had arrived just in time for New Year’s eve, which was spent at a local bar called “Toks” drinking Cass beer and Soju (the mere idea of Soju still makes my stomach turn to this day). The food in South Korea is REALLY spicy and “dinner” type meals are served at breakfast (ex: spicy squid and soup at 7:00am).

Jetlag was REALLY hard to get over and I don’t think I had ever felt so disoriented in my life.
