Coming Soon: The All New Pursuit Of Excitement, Version 2.0!

sunrisnewdaypoeA new day is dawning soon … the new site for The Pursuit Of Excitement is almost ready!

Hey there stranger!

James here. Perhaps you were looking for my well-established travel and adventure blog.  It exists, but not on this server.  At least not yet.  Instead of typing in pursuitofexcitement.com, go to pursuitofexcitement.wordpress.com for the time being.  In the ensuing weeks, I will be moving posts over to this server (check below for my most recent ones), and when I’m ready to launch this bad boy, you’ll hear all about it over on my current site.

In Motion: A Sneak Preview Of The Land Of The Morning Calm, South Korea!

A street in South Korea ... crazy eh?
Your intrepid adventurer will be walking streets in South Korea like this one in a mere three weeks … can’t hardly wait!

As I have alluded to previous posts recently, I have a date with South Korea shortly, in roughly three and a half weeks from the time of this post. There, I will be teaching English as a second language to a bunch of precocious Korean youngsters, and I am pumped to be a position to make an impact in their lives.

More Philippines will be coming on the blog later this week, but first, let’s pay homage to the city I’m about to leave in 3 1/2 weeks. Calgary, the largest city in Alberta, home of the 10 day Calgary Stampede (one of Canada’s best known festivals), and one of the wealthiest cities in all of North America, has been my home for the past year.

I took this time to save some green, see my sister and her young family, and plot my next move (teaching English in South Korea, May 2013!).
