And So It Begins

Here we are. As usual, the summer flew by and left us thinking that there is never enough time. Sunday morning came early and we packed up everything to head to the airport. We’ve decided that we have become pretty good at these trans-Pacific flights and almost enjoy catching up on the entire last six months’ worth of movies in one sitting. Notice the operative word “almost”. A little over 14 hours and one international dateline later, we landed in our new hometown: Seoul, South Korea. Our new school picked us up and gave us a quick tour as we headed to our new campus. After a quick traditional Korean meal of pepperoni pizza, we were shown our new apartment (with a real kitchen that I am more than a little excited about) and given some time to settle in.

Today starts our official first day. I’m not sure whether it was jetlag or anticipation that had us up at 4:30 this morning, but in any case we are ready. A new place brings on new sights, new smells, new foods, new faces, and new cultural experiences. We hope to entertain you with them all. Thanks for sharing this experience with us; it’s going to be a wild ride!

I am only 2 weeks away from crossing the date line myself. My plane ride should be 20 hours. Yuk. Congrats to you both on the new location and the exciting news. This WILL be an interesting year for you.

Take care.
