Today was our final day in South Korea, it has truly been a blast and the alumni and faculty I had a chance to interact with were fantastic. I have learned so much about the culture and have gained a better perspective about how to engage our future and current alumni who are from South Korea.
Before our flight we had one more meeting with a retired faculty member from Yongei University, who Carol and Junehee knew. It was a pleasure to meet her and learn about her career and what she is doing in retirement.
* South Korean fact
When a person turns 65 years old they must retire. Also in Korea you turn a year older on the first day of the new year, not the day your were born.
We dined at a Chinese restaurant that was in the Seoul train station. I have never been to a train station that had multiple restaurants, coffee shops and a mall. The food was once again delicious
This chicken was so on point…..
But watch out for these peppers…Ked and I both accidentally ate these and boy were we on fire. Never again!
Crab hot and sour soup
Beef and vegetables….more vegetables than beef
Sweet and sour prawns! Oh so good
Juicy Lychee for dessert
The time has come to head back to the United States. We had a blast but we are ready to get back home. We look forward to coming back to South Korea.
So our flight from Seoul was Thursday, June 22nd at 5:30pm and we arrived in Dallas on Thursday, June 22nd at 4:30pm. We had a 4 hour layover and it was not bad, because we could chill in the Admiral lounge, which is a whole new level for waiting for your flight.
We also had the chance to meet up with one of Kedric’s high school friends who lives in Dallas.
We finally made it back to Manhattan safely. I have swollen feet and a slight back ache, but we are blessed to be at home and in our own bed. What an experience we had.
I hope you enjoyed this blog series about my first trip to South Korea.
Until next time
