Free Korean Language Classes at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Incheon, Korea Songdo Branch
We have attended local wards or branches of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the United States, France, Japan and now Korea!

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...
Puppies in Korea

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...
