When Korea skipped Spring...

This is a snippet of my last two weeks. Buddha's Birthday is this weekend, so the lanterns will be out in full force. I just can't get sick of taking pictures of them.

currently listening to: 20 Years of Snow, Regina Spektor


  1. Hi,

    I found your blog through the Teach ESL Korea site and I was hoping that you could help me out by answering a few questions about that company and your experiences in S. Korea. I am a recent college graduate, and a friend and I are interested in teaching English abroad but after researching on the internet I have found that many people have found difficulties. I am hoping you can tell me about your experience working with Are you being paid the amount specified in your contract? Are your living accommodations satisfactory? Are you working more, or less, hours than you signed up for? Does the site ( provide the types of services they advertise (setting up phone interviews with the school, resolving any conflicts with Korean employers)? If there is anything else you could tell me about your stay in Korea...are you enjoying yourself? Are you really able to save large portions of your paycheck each month? Are you being paid on time? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much for your time!

    If you could write me back at that would be greatly appreciated!
