So ive been on an overnight field trip and surprisingly have done mostly nothing but sit in my room and watch movies. My students have been taken care of by the resort staff so the teachers have basically been relegated to sitting around.  It's the second day and we are leaving later today but I am just wondering if this is odd for an overnight field trip...

The activities were meant for the students and not the teachers so I think its perfectly normal. Maybe you can supervise the students but thats pretty much it. But I guess you are lucky enough that they let you tag along.

When I went on my class trip we had drinking time with the teachers at ten every night. We drank maekju, soju and somaek and had an assortment of things to eat.

I went on an overnight field trip with two other teachers in my school and one homeroom class, and myself and the other teachers just sat in a pension room watching TV while the students' mothers did all the work. Their mothers even made us dinner and insisted we drink some beer. Very strange! I kept thinking "This would never happen in the US."
