Day 6 in Korea was another great day, albeit a little less exciting because we were traveling. I started out the day by picking up our trusty rental car, complete with trusty (English, not Korean!) GPS. After loading up the trunk and three kids in the back, it was off on our 1.5 hour trip […]

Last day in Seoul

 Apr, 01 - 2015   FamilyKorea tripTravel

We've had a great time in Seoul, and our final day (day 5) was no exception. We started off at a cool Seoul History Museum to see how this place changed from a sleepy little Capitol to a world city bigger than Chicago. Here are the boys posing as important (carried around) people at the […]

When I've talked with people about this trip, one of the single biggest sources of trepidation tends to be the flight. That's true for me too. Who hasn't been on a flight with miserable kids? What parent hasn't had those kids been theirs (at least a few times)? Like I mentioned in my last post, […]

From my point of view, going to Korea will actually be a little tamer than Spain, Portugal, and Morocco with the older two, […]

Hi everyone, This is a few days late, but as you can see from this picture of CR dumped on the curb outside our house, we made it home safe and sound on Thursday. I’ve got a few more posts to put up still, but it’s back to work again tomorrow.
