Swimming in Korea
We love living in South Korea and are having an amazing time. However, not going to lie, some things are frustrating. Like the language barrier which we are working on but are never going to master in the next six weeks. Then there is the complicated food. Man, I miss just knowing what to order and not being surprised...
Date Night in Korea
We are slowly transitioning from vacation mode to work mode as Gabriel starts teaching in just two days! Though we still plan on doing plenty of exploring and discovering in South Korea, the reality is, it won’t strictly be playtime on the peninsula. Today Gabriel spent the afternoon finalizing lesson plans, while Molasses took a nap. Then Widmore and...
What to expect living at the Incheon Global Campus in South Korea
We did absolutely zero research before coming here, which really isn’t much different than everything we do. We used our wits and prior experience to help us plan for what we expected to happen and decided to wing the rest. Today we are reflecting on what we wish we’d known. We also thought it would be fun to give...
Celebrating Father's Day in South Korea
If you follow us on Instagram, you know by now that we love to celebrate any occasion!

Worldschooling on Jeju Island
Today was our last day in Korea’s Hawaii; a little paradise known as Jeju Island. We didn’t know before today, but Jeju Island played an integral part of the division between North and South Korea.

Our Perfect Family Day on Jeju Island
We were already sore from so much walking yesterday, but we managed to kick it up a notch today and ended with spending a perfect family day on Jeju Island. Thankfully, we all got a little more sleep. I swapped beds with Gabriel and took the twin bed with the baby. Sounds like a tight fit, but I pushed...
Exploring Waterfalls on Jeju Island with Kids
A double bed and a twin bed is just not enough for a family of six. The twins took the floor mat, I took the double with the squirmy baby discovering her fine motor skills and Daddy shared with Eclair. I was up all night. Every time I heard a grunt, or a deep breath, or heard the bed...
