This weekend was my last weekend in Korea and the last time I saw most of the foreign friends that I've made here. Believe it or not, no tears were shed by this girl! I'm just really blessed to have met great people and to have formed deep and meaningful relationships with them, so while we may never be in the same physical place again, we'll be in touch. So, in my eyes, it was a bit of a celebration before moving on to all of our own separate adventures.
On Saturday, we met Adam, Ashley, Jeff, Priscilla, Stella and Chris at Ashley's Buffet in Nampodong. They have unlimited wine at the buffet, so it always seems to be a top contender when dinner parties are being planned with this group! Hey, at least we're keeping it classy with wine, right?
Or maybe we're not so classy, actually.
One of the things that's making this move so much easier is that so many of our friends are leaving Korea at the same time as us! Adam and Ashley are leaving Korea the Wednesday after Aaron and I and are traveling through Japan, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Cambodia for 6 weeks before moving back to Southern California!
Chris is moving to California to go back to school and Stella is planning to stay in Korea a little longer...
Jeff is staying in Korea 1 MORE YEAR without all of us. He's a brave man! Priscilla is heading back to her home country of New Zealand after she spends a month traveling!
After closing down the restaurant, the 8 of us walked over to the batting cages in Gukje and spent the next couple hours hitting balls and playing doubles on the basketball machine game. Aaron and I dominated, of course... We play that game every time we pass an arcade!
I love this group of friends, but I'll especially miss this gem and our Monday night Revenge nights when we watch the newest episode of Revenge and catch up on EVERYTHING from work, celebrity gossip, love, life, travel, etc... all while downing popcorn like it's our job!
It's by chance that we all met, but by choice that we became friends! I'd say it's one of the best choices I made while living here! I'll miss you guys!
