Our Trip to Seoul

We arrived in Seoul at about 5am Sunday (Seoul Time) the trip was wonderful, and other than our large bag not getting here with us, they say it will be here tomorrow. We are doing wonderful! I have written about 5 pages on our trip and will add these journals as time allows, but for now here is some photos of our trip so far...

Okay, a small wave at least!

The man next to my seat was going to Bejing for vacation.

Ethan had everything figured out.
The man next to me had to show me how to get out my dinner tray!

This is the Boeing777 we rode on...Isaiah buddy here is the big picture of the plane!

We are now in Korea!

Going through immigrations

Our cab driver. He went 128 miles per hour on the way to the hotel and laughed when Ethan and I commented on this very strong smell..."Kimchi" he said. We were driving past a Kimchi factory!

We are so happy to have made it to Seoul, the place of our daughter's birth.
We can't wait to meet her Tuesday!
