Where are we going?

Yes, it’s true – we’re planning to relocate. Where, you ask? Jeollanamdo province, Korea, we say. Oh, you answer. But that doesn’t help a bit! No, no it doesn’t.

So: Jeollanam-do province is on the southwestern coast of the Korean peninsula. The wikipedia entry is here. It’s the purple part in the image on the right. (The green dot is the city of Gwang-ju, which is its own autonomous province.) Jeollanamdo is primarily an agricultural region, dotted with islands, mountains, and forests.

We don’t know where in the province we’ll be yet – that’s part of the fun. The EPIK program, which places foreign teachers in all Korean public schools, won’t have a definite list of openings till the new year.

    So exciting! How long are you two going to live in S. Korea?
    Maybe you’ll have some visitors…we haven’t done quite enough traveling together yet.
