Why we miss Korea. [photo journal]
It’s been seven months since we returned from Korea and I can say with absolute honesty that I miss that country more than I’ve missed any other in my entire life. I knew I was going to miss it months before we even left. I tried to soak up as much of it as I could. I’d take long walks through our neighborhood, savor every last bite of hotteok and samgyupsal, arrange memorable outings with our Korean friends, and take as many pictures as possible. Did it work? Maybe… but I still miss it like crazy. I miss our amazing friends, the delicious food, the laid back schedule we had, and the nice paychecks we made.
What do you call it when you miss living in a country that isn’t your own? I feel homesick. I long for the food, our friends, the lifestyle, even the smells of Korea. Korea felt so much like home. We made it our home for two years. I’m Koreasick? That doesn’t quite sound right. Regardless, both Chris and I miss Korea.
We were going through the photos we took of our last few weeks in the country and realized that we hadn’t shared most of them on this blog. So today, we’re going to take a walk down memory lane. We hope they ignite even a fraction of the spark that we have for Korea.
