New Places

Well, Korea so far has been…interesting. Pretty much nothing is what I expected, least of all my unit and the job I’m doing. So much for being a medic, let’s go work in the S1 shop! Whoohoo. But, I like most of the people in my unit, and it’s pretty relaxed. It’s awesome to NOT be with a bunch of fresh-out-of-high-school kids (I’m one of the youngest).

My husband is still in the US. 😦 Trying to get the paperwork done for him to come here is like pulling teeth. The VA is less than helpful, on just about anything, it would seem.

I haven’t done a whole lot in Korea. Went downtown a bit, tried some amazing Korean BBQ, went up north to Camp Casey with a girl from my unit to visit her husband…it’s really different, which of course was expected, I just didn’t expect to be so homesick for little things.



First look at Seoul…


Spring here was beautiful. Little random gardens are everywhere.

We went to a ziplining course, that had this beautiful garden. It was huge.

Ginkgo tree? I think?

I’m not sure what this is called, besides a pork loin…but it was fabulous. I love how pretty they made it. I didn’t eat the flowers though. 😛
