2018: A Plan, A Pause, A Thank You

Soooooooooooooo Happy New Year everyone! I just wanted to take some time to write a quick update since it’s been soooo long. While I purchased the domain a full year ago, I finally got going with the site and doing tours this past Fall.

Slowly but surely, thanks to you, I’m doing more and more tours. In the past month alone, I’ve met visitors from Australia, the UK, the US and even India! You Know Who and I also went to Thailand for our Christmas vacation!

But, sadly, I’m working tooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much these days.  I can’t really post like I want to. I’m doing a lot of private classes (around 9 hours a week) to get my income back up after a summer without work. I have my normal after school job on weekdays for five hours, too.

Even more exciting? I took a part time job at Korea Travel Easy (KTE). Korea Travel Easy is a startup about one year old that offers shuttle bus tours, private transfers, concert tickets and more to visitors when they come to Korea. I’m working here around 10-15 hours per week as well!

My main job with KTE is creating product posts and content for now, BUT with time, I’m doing more traditional marketing roles with airline partnerships, newsletters, etc…..something I’ve dreamed of doing in Korea for years!

I THINK and HOPE and PRAY finally I can say goodbye to teaching kids from March! I will be forever grateful for the opportunities and experiences ESL teaching and has taught me, but it’s time to move UP and ON! FINALLYYYYYYYYYYY!

My goal is to do a mix of adult private classes, devote some proper time during the week to this website and business, and then keep increasing my hours at KTE until I can go full time comfortably.

So now all in all I’m working about 45 hours plus per week. Yes, they say determination and hard work is key, but I literally cannot keep the hours in a day.

So for those visitors who are coming here looking for fresh content, please be patient! I’m still happy to do night time tours, but I can’t do any cute Weekend Trip posts as often as I want.

Thank you all for your support and love! 2018 is going to be the year to take this business above and beyond…..but just not today :-)!
