Spontaneous Island Getaway!

Next week is Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving), and my school and Aaron's school have both decided to give everyone 2 extra days off (Monday and Friday), so that the staff can have an entire week off of work!  Thank you Gamjung and Yeongdo!

Aaron and I had tossed around a couple ideas of places to visit during the 9 day vacation: Taiwain, Japan, China, maybe an adventure through the Korean countryside... but today, on a whim, we decided to stay in the country and head back to Jeju Island, Korea's pride and joy, and this time we're bringing SCOOT along!!  

We went to the Busan Ferry Terminal tonight and reserved 2 spots in a 10 room dormitory (with no beds - just a dirty floor to lay our heads - very Korean style!) on a quasi-cruise ship!  It'll take 12 hours to get from Busan to Jeju and we'll be departing this Friday night!  We're not sure how long we'll stay, or what we'll do while we're there, other than lay out on the beach and bask in the forecasted 82 degree weather!  We're just happy to be taking advantage of the time off and heading back to paradise!
