Thank you for taking time out of your day to check out our blog! Right now we are making last minute preparations for our trip. We are sorting out travel details and are beginning to decide what exactly we will bringing with us on our trip across the world!
I am also working to make sure that this blog is all set up to make for easy posting once we’re on our journey!
Here’s a breakdown of our travel ideas so far:
Leave Pittsburgh on Monday, October 20th
Arrive in Incheon, South Korea the evening of Tuesday, October 21st
Stay in Incheon area through Thursday, October 23rd.
On Thursday, we plan to head to Gwangju – a city in the South Jeolla Province of Korea (where our program and program’s schools are located). We will then stay through Sunday afternoon and will head to the hotel that our orientation will be held. This hotel is one of the largest hotels in the area and is located in downtown Gwangju. From there we will spend a week learning about our program and Korean culture. 🙂
I’ll finish this post by including a picture of Soju, a Korean alcoholic beverage. It’s very similar to vodka and they drink it by taking shots and in mixed drinks. We got some at our local liquor store 🙂
Keep an eye out for updates soon…
