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...
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...
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in South Korea
We desperately needed a down day today, and with it being Sunday it was the perfect opportunity. Except… Day 4 South Korea Family Travel Journal The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Korea is an hour away by Subway. Fortunately, our branch services don’t start until 12:10pm so we had plenty of time to loaf around...
Grocery shopping in Korea
I think we are slowing but surely moving towards normalization in regards to our sleeping schedule. We didn’t wake up until 5am this morning! One extra hour of sleep felt like a huge win! Day 3 South Korea Family Travel Journal  Today the plan was to find a grocery store that we didn’t have to buy everything in bulk, preferably we...
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...
Cami's Cupcakes, Cami's Creamery, Banana Pudding Ice Cream, traveling with kids, family travel, diapers on a plane
That’s right. We said not! Not good to eat. I mean, I don’t get it. Paula Deen, the Butter Queen herself, is from none other than the sweet state of Georgia and yet we had the hardest time finding a decent bakery in all of Atlanta. And we tried! We struck out four out of five times! If there...
D'frozz, only ice cream in vieques, puerto rico, ice cream on the island of vieques, traveling with kids, family travel
Of course we couldn’t say no to stopping for ice cream. We’d been traversing the island of Vieques all day, ran into the local Latter Day Saint missionaries and chatted for some time and then accompanied them to what they suggested was the best pizzeria on the island, only to find that it was closed! After our absolute disappointment...
Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC, Disney Springs, Orlando, Florida, Gluten Free Bakery, traveling with kids, family travel
We were so excited to find this dairy free, egg free, gluten free, soy free and certified kosher bakery at Disney Springs. Even though our family doesn't have any of these specific allergies as a life threatening condition, most of the above allergens are allergenic due to the fact that they are loaded with glyphosate residue from pesticide and...
Key Lime Pie, Key West, Florida, Disney Wonder, Disney Cruise, Port Stop, Excursion, Pie, The Keys, Florida Keys, Family travel, traveling with kids, creating family memories, take the kids, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane,
Let’s just start with the obvious cliché: No stop in Key West, Florida is complete without Key Lime Pie. We knew we had to have to it, we wanted it, and we bought it. Ah, but where to buy it? Not one bakery seems to have an actual claim to possessing the original, or the first, Key Lime Pie...
