My New Chapter: My New Home Country

Sadly, my life’s chapter on Korea has come to a close. As with all things though, a change always occurs. And this is so in my life. Ladies and gentlemen, here is my new home!

  2. I guessed correctly with Japan. You had posted several videos from when you visited Japan, so that was my guess. Looks fun.

    • Good guess then. I thought I had everyone guessing. I always knew I’d have to live in Japan at least once before I go home.

        Tom, absolutely. Looking forward to your vlogs and reports from Nihon. Interesting story. My grandparents (my mom’s parents) were married in Osaka. All of my mom’s older siblings were born in Osaka. My mom was the first one born in Busan (where my mom’s side of the family is from). Yes, I am the “product” of an American soldier dad and Korean mom. πŸ™‚

        • That’s an interesting, great family story. Both Busan and Osaka are among the best cities in Korea and Japan IMO.

          • Robert Strain says:

            The people from both cities are more straight-forward. Looking forward to more reports. Thanks for giving a glimpse into life overseas, especially in Northeast Asia.

    Best wishes to you on teaching in Hiroshima. I know that Japan is a beautiful country and hope that you will have a wonderful time there. Hope that you find a dojo soon in Hiroshima as judo is a hobby of yours. Keep the videos coming as I find them so informative and a pleasure to watch.

    • Thank you very much. I am really happy to be here. Hiroshima already seems like a very nice town that will fit me well. I also have no doubt that I’ll find a judo dojo. It is Japan!
