It is absolutely amazing how fast time flies when you are fully engaged in what you are doing and staying active everyday.  I have been in Raja Ampat, Papua, Indonesia for two full weeks now and it feels as if I just arrived yesterday, yet I have learned so much in just 14 days time. After writing my last post, I finished running errands for supplies with the team in Waisai (the closest thing resembling a town near us) and headed back to our island, which…Continue Reading “Two full weeks on the island….Barefoot style”

Unfortunately my Internet access in this part of the world is extremely limited.  I thought it would be a nice break being away from everything but not having any internet access has proven difficult.  I have been in Indonesia for almost a week now and so much has happened in the last six days that I have been here. Per my last post, I was due to meet the Barefoot Conservation program coordinator last Thursday morning in Sorong, Indonesia.  I am happy to report that…Continue Reading “Life in Indonesia…..Sorong, Waisai, diving, and life on the islands…..”

It all started with a one year contract teaching English in Korea.  About thirteen months ago, I decided to take my life overseas and get some real living in.  I am pleased to say that everything worked out and then some…I have decided to keep the journey going.  Next up, Indonesia.  As previously mentioned on my blog, I enrolled to partake in a marine conservation program for a month in Raja Ampat, Indonesia.  I am on my way there now.  I am currently sitting in…Continue Reading “And we are officially off….again!”

At last….the day has come ㅠㅠㅠ

My time in Korea has finally come to an end.  The period of my life I have spent in this country has absolutely flown by and I am slowly trying to piece together where the last thirteen months have gone.  This past Friday I enjoyed a wonderful going away celebration with my closest friends and students.  In addition to my farewell bash, I have been saying numerous goodbyes and trying to tidy up every relationship that I have made before I leave the country.  I…Continue Reading “At last….the day has come ㅠㅠㅠ”

A good friend of mine is currently participating in an amazing program in which he is networking with entrepreneurs and all around awesome people in Santiago, Chile for three months.  The purpose of the program is more or less to teach people how to live life on their own terms, financially and otherwise….sort of like a Master’s degree in autonomy.  There was a suggested reading list of about 20 books for the aforementioned course and my friend was gracious enough to send it over to…Continue Reading “Don’t ever stop living…”

Not everyone is as blessed as I am. I truly have some of the best friends in the world. Last week I had the great pleasure of hosting some of my favorite friends from college in Korea. I had a wonderful time blending old friends with new and really giving my USA buddies a good taste of Korea. I had a number of Korean friends help me plan the visit for my friends and we ended up having a ball. Over the week my USA…Continue Reading “The kids do Korea!”

This upcoming weekend, I am especially lucky to have three of my best friends from college coming to visit me.  I am eagerly anticipating their arrival and I will leave for Seoul early this afternoon in order to meet them there.  One of my Korean friends is going to give me a ride to the Hongdae neighborhood in Seoul and we will meet my American friends there this evening.  As I reflect back on what I was doing a year ago, it is simply amazing…Continue Reading “Friends…in all places”
