After over two years teaching in South Korea David and I returned to the UK but after ten months we decided we missed South Korea and here we are once again... teaching, exploring and LOVING living in Changnyeong, Gyeongsang nam-do.

Liberation Day

Today is of course V-Day. In Korea this refer to it as Liberation Day in Korea or Gwangbokjeol which literally translates to "Restoration of Light Day." It is celebrated annually on August 15th and there is always a national holiday. It commemorates victory over Japan, which liberated Korea from colonial rule. Today David and I are off work...yippeeee! We spent our day relaxing, being lazy and generally getting over our holiday blues!!!
