Baby playing with brown bears at Everland in South Korea
We are spending the entire summer in the city of Incheon, South Korea while Gabriel teaches two summer courses at the Global Campus! Follow along with our travel journal while we explore the city, learn the Korean language and live as temporary expats in the land of the morning calm. Day 1: Departure from the United States and Arrival into...
Shopping at Bupyeong Underground Market with Kids in South Korea
The twins baptism is fast approaching, and since they are getting baptized in Korea we thought it would be special to incorporate as much of the Korean culture as possible. We’d been browsing the stores as we went about our adventures, but we needed to dedicate some time to really finding some dress clothes for both kids. The plan...
Central Park Songdo with Kids in Incheon, Korea
During our adventure to Costco in South Korea on Day 2 we exited the subway station at Central Park Songdo and immediately our eyes were fixed on a massive art sculpture set inside a shallow man-made water basin. You can’t miss it. It’s comprised of three appendages sitting in the middle of the water and resembling something of three...
Spasis: A Korean Jjimjilbang with Kids
One of the things we love the most about summer is swimming. In fact, at the age of three last year Eclair won the cannonball contest at our local pool in the 6-10 age bracket! Summer just isn’t summer without a picnic poolside, bronzed skin and teaching the babies new mermaid tricks. So, we are struggling a little bit...
Sinpo International Market
Oh my heavens, I’m exhausted. We had such a fun day today exploring the Jung-gu district of Incheon. This area houses so many interesting places of interest, and like everywhere else we only scratched the surface. There is the Youth Mall Snowflake Village, Dapong Catholic Church, Sinpo Fashion and Culture Street, Naeri Church, Incheon Art Platform and the Former...
Champion Sports Kids Play Area in Korea at Triple Street in Incheon
I don’t know how people go back and forth across the ocean, especially people who live here in South Korea and travel back and forth to the states to visit family at the end of the term.. I mean Europe isn’t too bad, it’s just a few hours forward, but Asia is like time traveling. Or maybe, we are...
Seafood dinner in South Korea
We had a bit of a mishap in our preparations for coming to South Korea. We didn’t know if we were supposed to get our flight tickets and then our Visa, or our Visa and then our flight tickets so we didn’t know when we were coming until just five days before our flights. We are notorious for planning...
The Varsity with Kids, Atlanta Georgia, Hot Dogs, Fast Food, Let them eat hot dogs, chili, traveling with kids, family travel,
One does not simply go to Atlanta and skip the Varsity. The Varsity is an icon, a celebration, a landmark and an institution. It also serves up some boiled hot dogs, chili and their trademark orange drink to boot. And while maybe that might not sound like much, the Varsity is Atlanta defined. For as long as Gabriel can...
Lego Discovery Center, Atlanta, Georgia, Legos, Kids, Family Travel, Traveling with Kids
Here’s a little bit of worldschooling word math for you. A family of 6 goes go The Lego Discovery Center and pays $22.95 each; and that’s with the discount. The baby is free. The experience is worth an approximate $10 value per child at best, and Mom and Dad should be free to sit around and wait for the...
