The Brave, Little Ninja Goes to South Korea: Final Itinerary

This is a brief overview of the plan at the moment.

Quick Facts:

July 6th-July 7th
Indianapolis, USA -> Toronto, Canada -> Tokyo, Japan

  • Where: Tokyo, Japan
    When: July 7th – July 11th
    Why: My wonderful friend who tutored me in Korean at Taylor named Yuna invited me to come stay at her house so I could talk to her mom about what teaching at international schools is like and also see Japan

July 11th
Tokyo, Japan -> Osaka, Japan -> Incheon, South Korea

  • Where: Seoul, South Korea
    When: July 11th – Sep 1st
    Why: to participate in an OMS (One Mission Society) Program called “Adventures in English” as part of my practicum for my TESOL certification

Sept 1st-Sept 2nd
Incheon, South Korea -> Guangzhou, China -> LA, USA -> Atlanta, USA -> Indianapolis, USA

I’m not going to go into much detail yet because I am planning on doing weekly blogs like I did for my other blog series, The Brave, Little Ninja Goes to England.

Honest question though: what in the world do you even do on a plane for fourteen hours?! If you are more experienced traveler and want to share some of your travel secrets with me, please let me know!

This is going to be a new experience for me in many ways. Of course, please pray for safety as I travel and explore these new places, but if you could, please also pray that I will be calm and handle all the curveballs that are thrown at me with patience and levelheadedness.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Alecia, I am so excited for you. I can’t wait to hear more about all your adventures! I will be praying! Some of these are obvious, but on planes I like to: read, listen to music, watch movies, listen to audio books, play Sudoku puzzles or crosswords etc, write notes, outline story ideas. . . . Hope that helps 🙂


  2. Dear Allie, Oh Honey, it’s that time already?! You know you are in our prayers especially safety prayers. Take several books with you to read on the plane. May God take you overseas for successful TESOL internship and bring you back safely. May He give you strength every day for the needs of the day. God bless you and bless you. All our love, Grandma and Papa


  3. I’m so excited for you! Can’t wait to watch your adventures from afar.

    Also, I have four plane tips for you!

    1. Planes are a great place to catch up on all those films you’ve meant to see but haven’t; most jets will have lots of classics as well as lots of new releases, if that’s your thing. Easy way to kill a couple hours at a stretch.
    2. All those books on your TBR list? Yep. That’s what planes are for. I personally like to use the airplane as a chance to read up on the classics, since they’re mostly free on Kindle—I don’t have to carry heavy books with me, plus I’m reading good literature!
    3. There’s nowhere to outrun writer’s block on the airplane. Journal, write letters, revise a novel—you’ve got nothing but time. Almost literally. x_x
    4. Sleep. For real, if you can sleep on the plane, do. Bring a blanket, stuffed animal, neck pillow, whatever works for you. Plug in headphones. Maybe take Benadryl. Kick your shoes off, because your feet will swell. Get comfy and nap like a boss!
