JEJU – Day 3

I spent all day maxing and relaxing — “chillaxing” at the indoor and outdoor hotel pools.  Later in the day, I decided to also get a one hour massage and spend time in the hotel sauna.  The hotel sauna was refreshing, and I even found a brush there!!!!  Who would have thought!???!?  They had a sanitizing machine, like the ones at barber shops, filled with brushes for the public to use.  How do I love thee Korea????  Let me count the ways………So – I was able to wash and brush my hair thoroughly on the third day of vacation — yayyy!!!! 😉  Later that night, I took a trip to E-mart, because I needed to get an external hard drive to save all my photos and videos.  So, after having a very lazy day, I ended up being very productive as well 😉  I also saved a bunch of money, because I ate dinner at E-mart.  My meal was only 5,000 won compared to 20-30,000 won.  I had been spending around $20-$30 on every meal so far, so I wanted to be a little more thrifty.  Honestly, I was very dissatisfied with the food on the island.  I looked forward to some good food, but the meals did not live up to my expectations.  On the way back home, I also picked up some cereal, so I wouldn’t spend so much money on breakfast.  When I returned to the hotel late that night, I talked to the guy at the front desk about which mountain he suggest I climb.  He responded by saying, “I’ll take you to the mountain tomorrow!”  I said, “Really??!! Okay!!”  So, the next day, Jong Ho picked me up in his car, and we went to Seongsan Peak, which was about an hour drive from the hotel.

  1. hi
    briefly checked your blog as i found your name on eslpark website. I am just doing my due diligence. How satisfied and how much research did you do on esl park b4 heading out to s.korea??

    looks like you are enjoying life.

    • Hey Monica — I really enjoyed my time in Korea. There were pros and cons (just like anywhere else), but I was satisfied overall with my first year there. ESL Park was a great recruiting company in my opinion. I didn’t do much research on them, because I didn’t feel a need. They were very professional and prompt, and I trusted that they would place me at a good school. I did research Korea in general, however, so that I could be aware of what differences to expect. I will e-mail a list of things I think you should consider before making the move to South Korea.
