Well, I know expatted is not really a word, but I’m not going to be handing this in to a professor. To me, It seems like a pretty accurate description of my state as I have recently become an expatriate in Korea to teach English for a year in the Seoul suburb of Suji.
And if you think about it An Expatted Journey sounds like the title of that long-awaited prequel to the Lord of the Rings that is coming out sometime in the next year or two, and will be called An Unexpected Journey, although based on The Hobbit. Actually, the plot is almost exactly the same as mine. Basically, its about some big guy known for being The White (By the way, Witten actually means The White in Dutch, so just like Gandalf, the name goes beyond skin color) , who encounters this fascinating race of slightly half-sized people somewhat isolated from the world and the adventures that follow.
So enough about that. I am actually planning on writing some actual adventures and insights into the language and culture of Korea in the near future. I would love it if you join me in this journey by reading this blog, and keep me posted with comments or emails, as I want to stay updated with your life as well.
