Monday November 28th my life abroad ended. In March I stopped teaching in Korea. Went back to the US, traveled a bit there, then mid April I went to Spain to start my trip around the world. I went to 10 countries: Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Thailand, Myanmar, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea. That trip ended Monday. By Friday I had started working again, making jewelry at my friends jewelry store in Iowa. I wanted some more time before I started working, but I'm glad I have a job.
Being back I feel....awful. I enjoyed my life in Korea, and my life while I was traveling. And now my life is so different. I feel like I woke up from a nice dream and now I'm in Iowa and all my friends, and the rest of the world are a million miles away.
