One big perk of teaching at an international school is that you get time off for all sorts of holidays that you wouldn't normally get. I got six (!) beautiful days off for Korean thanksgiving this past week. Mike and I seized the opportunity and made our way down to Jeju island. It is often touted as Korea's Hawaii and it certainly did not disappoint. The only tricky thing about the trip was that some places were closed, especially on Sunday, for the holiday. But I'm all for spending time with your family, especially on a holiday like Thanksgiving, so I could not begrudge them for that.
More photos to come!
