Half Day DMZ Tour with Kids
There was no way we were going to come to Seoul, South Korea and be within 30 miles of North Korea and not cross the border into the land of no return and the most secluded country on the planet. What kind of parents would be if we didn’t give our kids, and ourselves, this most incredible and rare...
Best Korean BBQ in Incheon, South Korea: Buam Ribs
Forget everything I ever told you about grocery shopping in South Korea. It’s all mute. We’ve been all over this city spending a fortune to feed these hungry kids healthy fruits and vegetables when all we needed was a few short subway stops away. No, not Costco. Forget Costco! Incheon Bus Terminal is just a few 5 stops from...
Popcorn, Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo Disney Sea, Family, Travel, Mickey Mouse, Souvenir
Flavored popcorn is all the rage in Tokyo Disney, and something that cannot be missed! Flavors range from Curry to Chocolate and you can have it all! Heck, you can even mix it together if you really want to take it to another level! But no matter how you eat it, you can't go to Tokyo Disney and not...

Songdo’s Canal Walk is supposed to resemble Venice;...
Square 1 Mall in Korea
We headed back to Square 1 Mall with kids again today. Remember, the one with the Giant Slide? That was not the original plan, but Bingsu got in the way. Oh, how we love Bingsu. In fact we just ordered a shaved ice maker from Amazon to arrive when we get home. Bingsu may forever be the reason we...
Mistakes on Muuido Island
So far we’ve lost a phone at a restaurant at the Hyundai Premium Outlets, a backpack on the Subway, a scooter at a Subway station, and now a phone in a taxi cab. Korea is too good to us and every last item has been returned to us by day’s end. Nevertheless, we’ve got to stop doing this and...
Giant Slide in Korea Square 1 Mall
By now, we’ve had our fill of shopping centers and markets, but when we heard about an American Style mall with a Giant Slide plunging through the center from top to bottom we kind of, sort of, had to go and take the whole family. Plus it is free! Day 51 South Korea Family Travel Journal: Giant Slide and American Style...
dream city in korea
Korean Fried Chicken is the number one thing that draws people from all over the world to visit this tiny peninsula the size of the state of Indiana. Okay, maybe I'm just speaking for our family, but there is nothing like Korean Fried Chicken anywhere else on the planet! It's perfectly spicy while also balancing a sweetness that punches your...
