2010, a year in review

4 01 2011

2010 might possibly have been the most unusual year I could have imagined. From living on different continents, travelling through many countries, working, not working, we’ve done it all.

We started 2010 in Sydney, but living in Korea.

We then flew to China to continue our vactations.

Back to Korea for a few weeks, finishing everything up, packing, shipping stuff around the world and saying goodbyes. Sad time.

Leaving Korea for the last time, our adventure awaited.


visited 23 states (10.2%)

Thats a list of the counties visited from leaving Korea to returning to Australia. We worked ourselves continually west, mostly overland, but with a few flights as required by time or distance.

I’ll try to pull together a better map with arrows, but basically we did :

Korea, Turkey, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Italy, France, Andorra, Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco, Spain, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, USA and at long last, Australia.

A good start on the world.

Returning to Aus, we lived and worked in Sydney for a few months while the parents were off exploring the country, but ultimatly have ended up in the land of the

Thats right, Tasmania. Hobart specifically.

We had visited a few times, visiting our good friends at

We liked it and decided to make a go of living here. The cool weather and clean everything helped.

Of course, we didn’t have jobs lined up when we arrived. We had both put a few applications in but its hard to apply and be taken seriously from out of state. But, after being here a few weeks, some interviews happened and I landed a great job at the State Library of Tasmania in the Systems Development and Support department.

Since then, we visited Sydney for xmas 2010, returned back to Tas in time for the Taste Festival and New Years Eve, and now its 2011.

I worked it out, and I think I was working for only about 10 weeks of 2010. Some of that was intentional, some unwanted, some optimistic. However, the travel was AMAZING. So many amazing things, places, people, foods and experiences. Hard to beat. Its so sad that so many people talk about doing something but never take the plunge and do it. 3.5 years in Korea and I don’t regret any of it.
