Wolchulsan National Park


I know I keep saying that I love it here, but seriously. I do. Korea feels more like home than ever.

My goal is to keep the blog updated frequently so my posts don’t need to be so long! Just a quick post today to let you know of awesome husband’s blog. His is more focused specifically on hiking in Korea, but it is awesome. You can check it out, bookmark it and follow it here: http://tommysheps.wordpress.com/

Today we did a 5 hour ish hike in Wolchulsan National Park. It was fabulous!! I won’t say much besides that when we ran out of food/water 2 korean men came out from behind a rock, and handed us lots of snacks. I am still in awe of Korean kindness and generosity. Then, just when we wanted to be done with hiking…we stumbled upon this beautiful little temple nestled in the mountains. Tomorrow we head to Orientation for 10 days to meet the 4o other teachers! We found out there are 24 other teachers that will be moving to our city of Yeosu!!!

I love this place that we now call home 🙂

About Elicia Shepard

I'm unique just like you. I've learned every person has a story which makes us who we are. One minute I am here..then I am gone. Discovering unknown places and people is an addiction I am proud of and will be an endless journey of mine. Smiling is not a pastime it's what I do. I live for moments that take my breath away. Falling in love is the greatest feeling-and the biggest risk. I thrive off of risks.Challenges. Adrenaline rushes. Making others smile. Art is all around and in ourselves. I love taking an unknown path not knowing where it'll lead. Mystery is beautiful. Compassion, kindness, and love- things I will always strive for. Know what you believe in. Stand up for it. Never be afraid to feel. Time waits for no one.Ever. Children inspire me. God fires me. Happiness is being with those you love.I am really blessed. I think God is love and forgiveness and I think he wants us to be good people and love EVERYONE. Figure out who you are and what that means to you-It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself (and you deserve it.) Live frugally on surprise. Breathe. Be who you are. Be an outcast...If you wanna find me I will be where the wind blows...Wherever that may take me.
