As I’ve announced through my newsletter, I’m going back to Korea! I left Seoul on Dec 6th 2011 and haven’t return to Korea since. My first destination was Hong Kong. For the last 14 months I’ve traveled to 23 countries (20 new, 3 revisited) jumping from Asia to North America to Europe (and back to Asia and North America). Now it’s time to revisit Korea. I’m nervous. Very much so. If you remember how difficult it was for me to leave because of the cultural restraints, it will be interesting to see how things are different (or the same) while I’m home.
As I’m stepping into a different stage of my travels, I would like to hear your opinions on two things.
One) I changed my header & design on RunawayJuno.com.
I moved on from pink & purple. What do you think? Is there any feedback you want to give me? Please, feel free to send me an email ([email protected])!
Two) I want to ask you, “What do would you like to hear from me for next two months?”
I’m having mixed feeling about visiting Korea. It will be really exciting to my two nephews and my family but I’m afraid to confront another big argument (more blaming and name-calling than arguing). I vividly remember how hurting that was. Also it will be great to eating my mom’s food, lying on the heated floor and reading under white ceiling lights. I can already see myself busy taking notes about everything. I’m excited to get inspired to write about everything (frustrations, holidays, culture, people, city-scape…). And I was thinking, why don’t I ask my readers? I’ve got may responses from my readers around the world, how they enjoyed reading my life changing stories and admired continuos travels. It menat a lot to me. So, I would love to continue doing a good job, delivering inspiring stories.
You know me, you’ve been reading my stories and following my travel journeys. You know me more than my family in some way. So I’m asking you,
What would you like to hear from me when I’m in Korea? I will feel, eat, and learn a lot while I’m there. What kind of experience would you like to live through me?
What it’s like being an entrepreneur as a Korean?
Photos from Korea?
What subject most interests you? For the new fans of Runaway Juno, and to jog your memory, here are some posts about Korea: culture, food, people and my life story. You can read about it and tell me what do you want to know more. You can leave a comment on this post, or email me ([email protected]) with your thoughts.
Break the Korean mold
If you want to hear an extended version of a certain story, please let me know. I’m excited to hear your opinions.
I will be spending Korean New Year (lunar New Year) traveling around the country and taking care of documents for two months. After that, I’m planning another Asia tour in different countries: the Philippines, Malaysia (again!), Singapore, Sri Lanka and India are on the schedule for now. I’ll be working, writing, photographing and learning through these countries. If you are around, and have any tips for me, please let me know!
I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
