Forever. For Always. No Matter What. Enter as Strangers. Leave as Friends. - Author Unknown
After two-days of traveling that spanned flying 7,432km (4,616) and is just short of 441 miles, which is from the East Coast of the United States to the West Coast, I am still feeling exhausted and jet lagged and my internal sleeping clock is off as I find myself wide awake at 4am on Adam’s very comfortable futon in his living room. Wanting to feel a bit productive I pull out my laptop and do a bit of writing while the memories are still fresh, plus after getting so far behind from not having a computer and writing down all the amazing memories over the previous 10 months I wanted to keep on top of things this time. Two-hours later and exhaustion finally begins to set back in, which I am thankful for and I end up sleeping in to the early afternoon. Fortunately my couchsurfing host, Adam doesn’t that I’m at his place while he has to go teach, which I know many people think is crazy allowing a stranger that you’ve just met to stay in your home while you aren’t there as well as giving me a key to his place in case I want to venture out and return when he still isn’t home. Once again it’s amazing the amount of trust that exists among this unique community I have grown to be a part of and welcomes everyone.
Later in the evening as I’m walking back to Adam’s place I run in to him on the sidewalk and we decide to meet up with his friend Matt and grab some more Korean BBQ. If it weren’t for the reunion, this would be a good enough reason to visit South Korea, because the food is by far the best I’ve had in the past 19-months. Fo sho, yo! As the temperatures drop and people around the area are beginning to become more scarce, it is a weeknight afterall, we decide to head back to the apartment and watch a movie.
