My Journey To Work

Tim Bray was the person who presented this blogging challenge to me. The challenge is to document your journey to work. I live in Korea, in a suburb of Seoul. Check out these “Journey to Work” posts: Tim Bray, Ben Sheridan, Kerri-Lee Beasley, Clint Hamada, Kim Cofino & Jess McCulloch (the one who started this).

This is my journey:

Shoe area in the apartment entrance. (Koreans don’t wear shoes in the house.)

Four flights down to the street.

Our street. Heading to the bus stop.

One of the many neighborhood farms. People farm any open plot of land.

Waiting for the bus by the corner store.

Here comes the school bus.

My wife & son on their daily sprint to catch the bus.

They haven’t missed the bus yet.

Middle school entrance.


Elevator to the third floor.

The ed tech office.

My desk.

    I wish I was younger, so I could try a venture like yours!

  • What a fun idea! I think I might just have to document my journey today. By the way, the California flag in your office is a nice touch. Thanks for sharing.

  • Steve,

    We work together and I had no idea that you have students who ride your school bus in the morning. Who are they? Are they KIS students? Hagwon students? Random people the driver picks up? I’m intrigued. Thanks for sharing this blog and for participating, it is an interesting window into everyone’s everyday life.

  • Hey Steve, thanks for taking up the challenge! I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing where this little meme has traveled. I like this little window into your daily life – thanks again!

  • Thanks for sharing, Steve! I love that people have gardens all over the place… I wish more cities had the same philosophy!

    Another comment.. I have seen the photo of the office before (in Tim’s post) but this time it occurred to me … there are 4 misters in that office. No women on your edu-tech crew?

  • Love it! Especially the daily run for the bus… used to do the same thing in Munich 🙂

  • Ben Sheridan

    Cool! I loved seeing that Bundang skyline in the background.

  • Hi! Love this, it’s great! I really like these little insights into other people’s lives. I sure do have to get all this collated. My fav pic is the one of everyone waiting for the bus on the corner.

  • Thanks for sharing Steve. I love the industrial coffee machine and I love the California state flag hanging in the window! It is fascinating seeing how others go through their daily routines.

    Great pictures! Miss you brother!
