I’m just a tall, midwestern, American guy who seeks the satisfaction of feeling fulfilled whether it be at work, traveling, spiritually, at home or amongst friends. I married Elicia back in August 2012 in Dominican Republic. We were accepted to teach English in Yeosu, South Korea for one year beginning April 2013. We therefore gave notice to our employers, sold just about everything we owned, put the rest in storage, and flew to Korea to begin this new chapter in our lives, together. Since day #1 we have loved the cultural experiences, teaching our students, and hiking the seemingly endless list gorgeous mountains.
Elicia and I enjoy hiking, and this blog will help document the cool summits and trails we’ve seen, along with some other neat stuff I see along the way. She’s keeping track of our other shenanigans and every-day living in her blog, Life’s a Journee. Enjoy!
We loved Korea so much we renewed our contracts and stayed for another year. We thoroughly enjoyed our two years working, living, and exploring South Korea. The experiences were rich and the adventures were epic. Our time in Korea from April 2013 to April 2015 will always be remembered by the friendships we made, the trails we explored, and the summit selfies in all the national parks.
Life after South Korea: We’ve since taught at an international school in Casablanca, Morocco from August 2015 to July 2017, introduced our first little bundle of joy into the world in June 2017 (Victoria Grace aka ‘Tori’) and will next be relocating once again… this time to Torreón, Mexico where I’ll be a Grade 9 math teacher.
Happy Trails – and thanks once again for stopping by Klimbing Korean Mountains.
