This is Not My First Time Around the Korean Block

But, this is a new blog. It’s not about what has happened before, where I’ve been or even where I’m going. It’s about now and about this new adventure. In the days, weeks, months, years to come, I’m going to share this adventure with anyone who wants to enjoy reading it.

Or else things get a little too cluttered, the narrative gets a little caught up in the story, rather than just tell the story. It’s the story that makes these blogs about people teaching English in South Korea so interesting. Also, pictures of new places, new faces, foods and, of course, Konglish.

I’m excited about this latest adventure but I’m also cautious. Like I said, this is not my first time around the Korean block. But, I can say with some confidence, it will certainly be the longest.

As Johnny Carson’s commercial break display used to say: More to come.
