… for now, at least. I left Korea on Friday morning, around the time when all my friends were in class. I went to the airport alone, which is what I actually preferred - cause I knew I wouldn’t be able to hold back my tears if I were to say good bye to my friends right there and then. It might sound silly, as I’m returning to Korea in less than 3 months - but that’s almost a bit too long for me. It feels a little like a heartache; leaving behind the friends I care so much about and the country I have fallen in love with over these past 10 months. Even though I’m so glad to meet my family again, I very much look forwards to my return to Korea in September!
The few days before I left, I spent a lot of time with my close friends - just having fun, eating together, talking about all there is to talk about, and saying goodbyes. I’ve gotten some really close friends in Korea, and I already miss them a lot.. of course we can still keep in touch while I’m here in Norway until September, but the time difference is a bit of a problem. Korea is 7 hours ahead, meaning when I start work in the morning, they’ll have finished their class and probably be home already.. and when I finish work and can use the computer, they’ll be asleep. So the only time I’ll be able to actually talk to them online is on my days off work.
So it’s back to the Norwegian life for me, and I have to say it’s a little strange to be back. I’m still not used to the cold weather, eating all this bread, and talking only in norwegian.. I start work tomorrow, and it’s supposed to be raining heavily, super windy etc - you get the picture. Oh how I wish it was all summery here, like in Seoul..
A picture I took yesterday - it was actually sunny~!
