Every once in a while I think that is good to have a reflective piece rather than an experience piece. While some people only write about the bright and shining events in their travels, my goal is to address every aspect of moving abroad with sincerity and that includes the emotions.
As I have mention in a past post, I have always wanted to teach abroad, see the world, and have an “Eat, Pray, Love” type of experience. However, leaving people, security, and things behind is easier said than done as I can go from being excited as hell to thinking what am I going to do if I can’t talk to my family daily. It’s part of growing up, spreading your wings and leaving the nest, but it’s also a process.
Hours and Miles, comes from a realization that the only thing that separates me physically from my loves ones is the hour difference of living in different countries and the miles it takes to get to Korea. It DOES NOT, though, change any of the feelings I have for my loved ones so putting it in this perspective, life really won’t change!
So if you worry about the changes in life as you head off to new things, think, what really changes? Just the Hours and Miles!
