Mommy and Me Baby Jjimjilbang
Week 6 we slowed down just a little bit and crossed a few more things off our list to do that we wanted to see, do and experience in South Korea. Things like visit Gangnam and dance like Psy in Gangnam Square, check out an indoor petting zoo where savage meerkats attacked our daughter, and see what it's like...
Eating Bugs in South Korea
Today, we have been itching to head back to Namdaemun Market to a) eat bugs in South Korea and b) buy kids clothes. On the plus side, we discovered several more things we love about Korea; on the flip side Namdaemun Market is not what we first thought. Day 45 South Korea Family Travel Journal: Eating Bugs in South Korea 남한에서 벌레를...
Chinatown in Korea
We have now been in South Korea for a full month, and I can’t believe how much we’ve squeezed into our time here so far! Theme Parks, bath houses, markets, Island hopping, popsicle stores, getting baptized, and now summer school starts! Check out our podcast recapping all the fun we’ve had this month, and our daily travel journals for...
Family Gangnam Style
Every weekend since we have arrived here in South Korea there is a street fair held at Triple Street. And every weekend since we’ve arrived we’ve wanted to check it out, but we always had something going on that prevented us from being able to. So with nothing else on the schedule, we decided today would be the day...
Chinatown in Korea
Our family activities have taken a huge nose dive since Gabriel started teaching, and we’ve settled into a bit of a nice routine where Gabriel teaches in the morning and Molasses is just beginning her early afternoon nap by the time he is done. It’s always an impossible choice between going out for a family activity or letting the...
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...
Diapers on a Plane Family at Baptism
This summer our family is exploring, worldschooling and playing in the city of Incheon, South Korea while Gabriel teaches two courses at the University of Utah Asia Campus! This week was momentous with the twins being baptized in South Korea and visiting the largest indoor amusement park in the world: Lotte World! Follow along with our travel journal while...
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. In advance of our tour of the North Korean border and DMZ, and living here as temporary expats we wanted to spend some time...
Seoul U, 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 Week 2 of 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 8: Puppies and Popsicles!
