Japan and South Korea - Page Text Content



1: A Foray to Japan and Korea In 2004, Jarett "the explorer" Doyle embarked on a journey of self-discovery to the beautiful land of Japan, and his life was forever changed. In 2011, I was fortunate to share in Jarett's life in Japan during our trip to Japan and Korea. My first experience of both countries and their respective cultures was nothing short of spectacular, from the generosity and amazing hospitality of the Japanese people (especially our hosts), to the round-the-clock hustle and bustle of Seoul. This photo book is a small taste and a brief retrace of this eye-opening trip. - Jana Tsang, Oct/Nov 2011

23: Epilogue Part of me never wanted to leave Japan back in 2004/5. As an impressionable young man, I was so captivated by the land, the culture, the people, and their beliefs, that coming back to Canada for my MBA education was more of a culture shock than traveling there in the first place. I needed to go back to see the places and people I so cherished when I was there. I don't want to call it closure (because I think I will be back again) but it had that feel. To share this with Jana was a must for me, because such a large part of who I am today is seeded in that year I spent in Japan. South Korea was, more than anything, a chance for me to see my brother Shane in his element. He has spent a significant portion of his adult life teaching English in South Korea, yet I had never taken the time to visit. Though our visit was short, I will remember it vividly. I get the sense he appreciates the lifestyle that his South Korean life offers more than that which is offered up by his birth country. Now having experienced it for myself, I can see why - Jarett Doyle, Oct/Nov 2011
