So Much To Sea and Eat; Great Seafood and a Great View of Gwangalli Beach

As you travel down the strip on Gwangalli Beach, there's so much to choose from. Lights everywhere indicating, "We're open for business. We're the best on the beach, and we have everything you need right here, plus, a great view of the bridge and the beach. And not surprising at all, is the number of seafood restaurants that appear from all around in this wonderful area. I recently visited a Korean seafood restaurant called Badajulgae, (ba-da-jul-gay), which roughly translates to "sea of shellfish".

Festivals, food and friends on Jeju Island

If you’re worried about what to do during all your free time here- stop. There’s so much to see and do especially if you’re on the mainland! I didn’t have Facebook before coming here, but it has proven to be immensely helpful in seeing what sorts of events are happening where and when.  You can easily get yourself to another province by bus or train if you’re on the mainland and many people leave Jeju for the weekend and spend it shopping/eating in Seoul or Busan.

Food in Saudi Arabia

Arabian cuisine is strong flavored and spicy. If you like rich combinations of food, you will definitely like the food in Saudi Arabia. Most dishes contain meat, rice, wheat, vegetables and spices that give these recipes a special flavor.

Food in the UAE

One of the major benefits of living and teaching in Abu Dhabi is that with its significant expat population an extraordinary choice of cuisine is available. Today’s UAE diet is one of many international delights, featuring dishes from all over the world including traditional Indian, Lebanese, Chinese and Indonesian fare. You’ll even manage to find fried chicken if you’re really craving some Southern comfort food!

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in Korea

My breakfast is eaten at home, though I always get a vending machine instant coffee with the bits of change in my pocket.

For those more in tune with breakfast, there are loads of breakfast cereals and toast and spread and fruit selections available. Traditional Korean breakfast is seaweed soup with turnip and often fish, served with rice and kimchi.

Drinking in Korea

Drinking is virtually a national sport in Korea, and there seems to be virtually no stigma attached to getting stinking drunk in public, particularly for men.

There are no shortage of drinking establishments, from sidewalk tents to trendy nightclubs, and this seems to be the recreational activity of choice for many English teachers in Korea.
