Going to Korea with 3 kids under 7

CR, JR, and HT (will stand out in Korea)

Hello everyone!

It’s been almost 3 years since I posted anything on this blog, but thought this might be a great time to resurrect it since we’re taking another crazy trip.

From my point of view, going to Korea will actually be a little tamer than Spain, Portugal, and Morocco with the older two, but we do have a couple things working against us:

  1. There are actually three of them now (not sure how that happened)
  2. The flight to Korea is (a lot) longer: 13 hours to Japan, 3 hours layover there, and then another 3 hours to Seoul.
  3. The older two might discover that “Gangam Style” refers to an actual region of Seoul, in which case Karen and I will end up hearing that song (a lot.)

So, you might ask, why go?

  1. We didn’t want JR. To feel left out by not having a trip he wouldn’t remember later.
  2. It’s been awhile since we had a vacation, and somehow we were too dumb to just go to Florida.
  3. We actually took HT to China as a baby and Karen said, “I’m never going back to Asia without a little blond baby again.” This is our last blond baby, so we thought we might want to take advantage.
  4. Neither of us (none of us if you count the kids) has ever been to Korea. That’s a bigger deal than you might think because we’re keeping score. I have a 5 country lead on Karen, but every place we go to that one of us has already been, it causes an unfair advantage. We both win with this one.
  5. It’ll be fun?

More posts too come soon–now time to bed so I have plenty of energy for all of that hard traveling. (Please, please, please let’s hope the LeapPads work for most of the flight and that the baby sleeps!)

Finally, I thought you might like to see this:
