May in Korea...

We are only half way through this month but I already feel as if I have done enough to last me an entire year. Its crazy what giving up alcohol can do for a person. Oh yeah, I’ve given up alcohol. I’m not sure if the lack of posts recently reflects this, but I have been a lot more active with the increased amount of energy that I'm now experiencing. It’s not something that I didn't really planned to do, but 2 months in and I’m absolutely loving it so cheers to that!
The BEST looking Lemonade I have had in my entire life!

Over the last couple of months I have met some new people, formed some new friendships, and I have been out and about gallivanting all over Seoul, but unfortunately I have somehow let the writing slip. This could be due to my busier work schedule but I guess that’s just an excuse. I would like to keep this blog up and write some more but I think this year I’m going to stick to a more realistic goal of maybe one post, every month. 

So here I am with a few pics from the month of May...

Traditional Tea Houses

Awesome food

 Lantern Festivals

Island hopping on bikes
Boat Trips

And casual night time strolls.

In other news... tomorrow, I am going home! Whoop! Just for a short two week vacation mind, but what a vacation it's going to be. I haven't stepped on English soil in over a year, and so to say that I am excited and also freaking out slightly is a massive understatement. I have heard of this weird phenomenon called reverse culture shock, and to be honest, I am slightly concerned. This is exactly what it sounds like...reverse culture SHOCK! I have been living in Korea for the last 15 months and so I have become completely comfortable with my surroundings. I am no longer nervous about living here, I automatically look left when I cross the road, I eat with chopsticks everyday, I eat kimchi like its drinking water and I speak, hear and read little bits of the language each day too, and so the thought of flipping this all backwards is a very strange one...What’s a fork again?!JK!

I can’t wait to see my family and friends, but the culture in England itself is now almost, slightly foreign to me, and so it will be interesting to see how that one goes. It’s difficult to explain this kind of feeling to anyone who hasn't been through it before, I can imagine I probably sound a bit ridiculous but lets just say that the next couple of weeks are going to be pretty emotional, and so people back home...be prepared and expect tears all round! Thank god I’m not drinking anymore.

Anyway, I apologise that this isn't the longest post, but I still have a lot of packing to do so for now I will bid you farewell, Oh and England, I'll be seeing you soon! :)
