To Do List–Take 3

I am slightly over my halfway mark in my three year Korea plan so I figured it was time to sit down and reassess what I have done and, more importantly, what I have not done.  Let’s start with the check marks that are already officially in place.

Have done’s (in no particular order)

Shark Diving at the Busan Aquarium

Daegu Herb Hillz zipline obstacle courses  (We just went again a few weeks ago.  Still waiting for pics to post new blog.)

Climb Mountain(s)

Make new friends

Have a soju night (One was enough to last me all three years. And I prefer to not link this one. Sorry.)

Find a variety of kimchi that I don’t dislike.  - White kimchi has grown on me.  It’s actually nice if you grill it with your meat.

Explore and experience a new world of food (There are dozens of blogs about food on here.  Food is my friend.)

Paragliding (Still awaiting pics and video for blog.)

Learn an acceptable (but tiny) bit of Korean (나는 한국말 읽을 수는 있지만, 내가 잘 그것을 말할 수 없으니까.)

Volunteer at the animal shelter
