This year has been strangely warm for the late summer/early fall. It means that the summer was only excruciatingly hot and humid for a short period of time after coming back for the new (academic) year. On the other hand, it means that going outside is generally more pleasant.
In true Team McGregor fashion, our ventures outside in the past couple of months have included ocean views, some high viewpoints, sunsets, and as much greenery as possible. It might not really be “The Hawaii of Asia” (we really do think that’s a bit of a stretch), but Jeju is a beautiful place.
This year we also have the added benefit of former Shanghai colleagues moving to the island to teach in other schools! Periodic “capsule Shanghai reunions” are always fun.
We anticipate that the weather is getting icky for some of our readers, so enjoy these pictures of Jeju. We will continue to try to enjoy as much of the nice weather as possible. It’s late October and in the high 60s. We don’t know what that means for the winter. Hopefully not too windy.
Coming up next on the blog: Going to Seoul and actually leaving the airport!
