It's Finally Here!

After what has been a long process ...drumroll...the visa has finally arrived!!! With this E-2 visa, I'll be able to remain in Korea for 13 months. This is great, since the orientation (still no date set...) will extend my stay to just over a year. However, there is a slight complication. The visa is for a single entry into the country. I still need to figure out if there is a way to re-enter the country if I do some exploring in nearby countries... say Cambodia or Thailand or Vietnam or Japan or... well, you get the point. It would be weird to stay in the same country for a year, knowing that the only reason you were doing so was because you couldn't get back in if you were to leave.

Correction: I just found out I need to arrive on August 25th... which means I will be in Korea for exactly one year.

  2. Teaching English is a great way to explore. If my travel business do not kick-off in the next few months, something one can seriously consider. At least I will be able to see the world.
