Swig Meets Gwangju: Directory

After six great months of writing for the Gwangju Blog it is sad to say that I will be leaving Gwangju to go travel around South East Asia while working on my Master’s Capstone Project.  It has been a wonderful experience and privilege to share my life with all of the Blog readers over the past half a year. I will certainly miss writing my weekly column, but I am excited to go and explore more of Asia! Reminiscing and reflecting on my wonderful times here in Gwangju will certainly make it a bittersweet moment when I head off to the airport.
