Whilst it’s great to be back in Oz after 2 years in Japan, I’m just about ready to hope on the plane and move myself to Korea where I’ll be studying Korean full time. Full time being Monday to Friday 9am – 1pm.

Right now it sounds pretty light on, so I’m hoping that I’ll get to join a club (hopefully Taekwondo 태권도) at my university (I’m going to Korea University 고려대학교) and I’ll make use of the library for extra study.

I already bought my ticket, 1-way business class with Jetstar. I bought my ticket when Jetstar was having a sale. This will only be the 2nd time that I’ve flown business class, so I hope it’ll be a comfortable trip to Japan, where I’ll stop for a few days to see friends.

I’ve sorted out accommodation, I’ll be staying at InKAS – Woorljip for Korean Adoptees. I do hope to spend time at Eastern Social Welfare Society to volunteer a bit, nurse the little babies and meet other adoptees as they come to Korea.

I’ve got my F4 Visa! I just have to save up a bit more money to fund myself for the 1.5 years I’ll be living in Korea! I’m pretty lucky that my old hospital gave me my job back, and the wage of nurses has increased a bit which is great for me!! A pity it seems that I won’t be able to work as a Registered Nurse in Seoul due to not being able to speak fluent Korean, as that would be great experience!

I’m just waiting for my pension money to come to me after working with JET for 2 years and after I do my tax return in July!!

I’ve already got a few things on my MUST DO list:
Go to Jeju Island!
Meet my Korean family, especially grandparents!
Save money to go to Spain for a holiday with my Australian parents to visit my Aunty.
