OK, so I'm not in Korea anymore, as most of you know. I just got back to Des Moines after a week in San Francisco. It's been odd getting readjusted, I have to say. When I first got to SF, I kept thinking about everything that had happened to me while I was gone...but it was as if it never really happened...like it was a dream I had just woken up from. Very odd. I've kind of gotten past that feeling a little, but it's still weird. I'm really missing all of my friends, even though I know there are more friends to be made around the corner.
I'll be starting my job in Istanbul on January 15th, so it won't be long until I'm thrown into the deep end again. No friends, no idea how to get around the city, relearning how to accomplish the simplest tasks. It makes one wonder, "Why does she do this to herself when it's infinitely easier to just stay put?" Hell if I know. The sense of adventure maybe? Or accomplishment? Possibly just stupidity. :-)
Anyway, as you should all already know, I'll be doing my next travelogue on a different website. I like it because I have more control over the look and feel, but there are a couple downsides. For example, it will NOT send you a notice to let you know I've posted a new entry. So, you can just bookmark my site on your computer and check it whenever you like. I'm hoping to update it on a very regular basis, at least weekly. I've been doing a good job of this since I left Korea, so I hope I can stick with it!
Another option might be to add my travelogue as a "feed" on your computer. I can't begin to explain the process of that here, but for those of you who know what I'm talking about, there is a link to add my travelogue as a feed on the left-hand navigation bar of the blog itself. That way, you'll get a notice when it's updated.
Here's the link for my new travelogue:
I won't be posting any more entries on here; they will all be on the new journal from this point on. I hope you like the new format as much as I do.
Take care, and thanks for following along with me all this time. I truly appreciate it!
