Tickets Bought Again…

We got word this morning that Coppelia’s visa date has been set for April 20th at the US embassy in Seoul. So for the 3rd time in 10 weeks I booked tickets to Seoul. My mom and I will be traveling this time, leaving Clint and all the boys at home. Mom and I will…

Court And Palaces….

It’s actually Saturday morning in Seoul as I type this, but Paxton is still sleeping in the bed next to me and I don’t know if I’ll get another chance to share. Court went really well. We were nervous because the agency for Coppelia was concerned about how Paxton was going to do in court…

Seoul Adventures Day #2

Jet lag is still affecting us as I was wide awake at 4AM this morning. Oh well, Clint got up a little after 5 and we took our time and decided to go for a run down by the river. On the subway we discovered that there was also a bike race happening and all…

Intro to Seoul

Since we are waiting and it will likely be a number of months before we actually get to travel to Korea I thought it best to start planning sites and places that we will try and visit while we are there. Along the way I hope to learn some of the history and culture. I…
