Living here in the Republic of Korea can be great. The job is easy enough and there is lots of time left over for fun. Being here I’ve made some great friends – here in Samcheok we have a really good group.
A few weeks ago my good friend Ryan (file photo below) decided he was done with Korea. He did 14 months, and that’s just fine. I like to think I’ll see him again (he is Canadian) but he lives on the other side of the country from me, so I’m just not sure. When I go back home, my friends will still be there (probably at the Davinci). Here, this group will likely never ever be together again – we come from all different places in the world. When people leave, there’s a good chance I’ll never see them again.
Kind of sad I know, but that’s one reality of being an expat here in Korea – might as well enjoy my friends here while I can.
