I finally got my E-2 work visa yesterday (Friday) around noon. Since my contract starts on Monday, I went ahead and booked a flight for Korea leaving on Saturday (getting me there on Sunday at 4pm). This way I don’t have to miss the first day of my contract. Obviously, my Friday afternoon was packed with preparation and stuff. Turns out my life fits in two bags and a backpack weighing little over 110lbs.
My ittenerary is as follows: Charlottetown – Toronto – Vancouver – Seoul. The whole thing taking around 21 hours. My flight from Charlottetown had chef and tv personality Michael Smith on it. Pretty cool stuff, but I feel bad because I have him the stink eye when I got in. I like the guy, I was just super tired.
Anyway, I’m sitting here at Vancouver International, which turns out is a really hip airport, awaiting my 11 hour flight to Korea and I’m starting to wonder why I’m doing this. I feel like a kid who got on a crazy intense rollercoaster. The bar is locked and the car’s started going up the steep slope. He knows it’ll be fun, but anticipation and the unknown is frightening.
Hopefully I won’t lose any loose change in the loops.
