Alex's Adventures in Asia: The End of the Road

I've been dreading making this announcement for months but here it is--on December 1st I will head back to the US for the indefinite future.

It was a difficult decision. I love the nomad lifestyle and the never ending adventures but I have a new nephew I want to see--not to mention the rest of my family and friends.

Perhaps I'll go back to the States and be horribly sick of it in 18 months or utterly jobless. Regardless, at one point I'm sure I'll end up back on the road and blogging.

This blog has been good for me. In the beginning (and dear god are those embarrassing posts) I used to just ramble on endlessly. I suppose I still prattle on a bit but I've gotten better at editing. I'll miss easily sharing my life with friends and family.  Then again, being in the same time zone it will be easier (and cheaper) to pick up the phone.  Maybe I'll keep blogging. I have no idea right now. All I know is that my apartment is mostly in boxes at the moment and I can't believe that these 2 years are already over. What happened to the wide eyed newbie who mimed in restaurants in an effort to get some sort of meal brought to her?

Expect a few more end of Korea posts before the death. To everyone out there, thanks for reading.

You have to keep blogging for at least 6 months after you get back, because you will be having reverse culture shock, and will need a place to talk about it. Besides, I love your blogs and your take on life, and your photos.

Everything has to come to an end at some point, unfortunately. I think you've made the right decision to get out of the ROK, though :)

Yeah, I'll keep blogging for a bit. I do like writing. I'm thinking of renaming it 'Alex's Adventures' so it can carry me through the rest of my blogging life.

Alex in Texas has a pretty good ring to it, wouldn't you say???? Trust me, you'd have plenty to blog about! ^^

I'm actually thinking of buying a domain name through blogger. It would have an automatic redirect from this blog and go to the new site ($10 a year). I'm thinking 'Alex's Adventures.' That way it can work in every stage of my life!
