Puppies in Korea
Traveling for 17 hours and awake for 48, overcoming jet-lag, gathering our bearings and surviving sticker shock over Korean produce prices, traveling an hour one way to church, exploring the Jung-gu district, and playing the day away at Everland, I think we are overdue for a rest day! Day 8 South Korea Family Travel Journal Puppies in Korea But, Puppies! Puppies...
Kit Kat Chocolatory, Japan, Tokyo, Candy, Kit Kat, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel, Diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane, specialty flavors
We thought that the Kit Kat Chocolatory in Japan would be like touring the See’s Candies Factory in San Francisco, California or the Maison Cailler Chocolaterie in Broc, Switzerland. We thought it would be a great place to take the kids and let them sample all the chocolate, see how it is made, and discover it doesn't just magically...
Swimming in Korea
We love living in South Korea and are having an amazing time. However, not going to lie, some things are frustrating. Like the language barrier which we are working on but are never going to master in the next six weeks. Then there is the complicated food. Man, I miss just knowing what to order and not being surprised...

Hiroshima is a sobering city that amplifies the devastating effects of what it means to live in a war zone, and how that affects the human condition. It is also a city that has risen from the ashes, not to forget its past, but to dedicate every day towards the promise of the future. The city of Hiroshima is also...
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...
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...
Peace Memorial Museum, Peace Memorial Hall, Atomic Bomb Hiroshima, Hiroshima, Aftermath of Atomic Bomb dropped on Hiroshima, traveling with kids, family travels, creating family memories
No words can really quite convey the experience of witnessing the city of Hiroshima first hand. Though Hiroshima is a proper noun and not a verb, it’s difficult to separate the two as Hiroshima is a place defined by its history. A visit to the Peace Memorial Park will offer you a sobering glimpse into the past as you...
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...

Walking around Tokyo, trying to find a place to eat everyday, it was surprisingly hard. Many restaurants in Tokyo don’t allow children, many are obscure, then there is the language barrier so we likely passed a ton of restaurants without knowing it, lots are reservations only, closed during specific hours, or themed dinner restaurants booked days to weeks in...

Two friends who have lived in Japan warned us about the Okonomiyaki. Warned us that we would love it! It’s an authentic Japanese speciality dish cooked teppanyaki style in a back alley restaurant crammed full of people. The bottom consists of a pancake which is then covered in noodles, vegetables, eggs, meat, soy sauce and anything else you desire....
