Saying goodbye to America…


I’m sitting here in an airport lounge at Honolulu International Airport watching our Korean Air liner undergoing final preparations for boarding.  We are finally leaving the United States for Korea.  Hooray!  We can’t wait.  It’s been almost a year since I signed up for this job, and it’s been almost 10 months since we first learned we would be heading to Korea.  It’s hard to believe that in just 12 hours we will be landing at Incheon on our way to our new home in Seoul.  I wish I could tell you how exciting it is for us.  Hawaii as been as enjoyable as it could have been considering all we’ve been through over the past couple of weeks.  We survived my Korean language exam, went through an exhausting packout, had a heckuva time in transit to Hawaii, and dealt with multiple bouts of illness (we’re still not at 100%).  Alas, we persevered, and now this ordeal is almost over.  In future entries, I’ll tell you more about the wackiness we went through on this trip, but for now, Korea here we come!

Yesterday my blog passed 1,000 page hits averaging about 15 per day.  That’s not bad considering I’ve only been writing it for about 2 1/2 months with no public fanfare.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoying our adventures!
