Welcome to Teressa and John’s blog! The Laterrasse Palawan. As much as I like perusing blogs, I never thought I’d be one to write one. But hey, if no one reads it, at least we’ll have a place to review our memories!
As many of you know, John and I are headed to South Korea at the end of October. We will be living in a city called Yeosu, which is waaaay south.
After an initial Google search of the town, our excitement has grown by the day. We don’t know much about the position yet, except that we will both be teaching English at different elementary schools in Yeosu.
We have been asked a number of questions, so I thought I might address a few, just in case you were curious.
Q: Why did you leave your great jobs in Seattle to go abroad?
A: For those of you who know us well, we love to travel and teach. So why not combine the two?! South Korea has some great opportunities to continue our career abroad, so we jumped at the opportunity.
Q: How long will you be gone?
A: Our contract is for a year. After that, the world is our oyster!
Q: How will you afford to live over there?
A: Believe it or not, we aren’t taking a pay cut which is awesome
Q: Can we come to visit you?
A: YES, YES, YES! Seriously, Google Yeosu. It’s beautiful! There are islands, mountains and beaches. We can eat delicious foods (think spicy seafood!), go hiking/camping and go island hopping.
We hope to see you there.
We will do our best to keep this blog updated as much as possible. I am looking forward to staying in touch with all you beautiful people!
