I feel like I have been living somebody else's life these past two weeks.
My world has been in a whirlwind. There is so much to share and I hope to elaborate further but for now here is the short version of the last fourteen days.
For starters, there was The Traveling Door 2013 event.
This was a terrific success and I want to say thank you to everyone that was able to attend.
As soon as it was over, though, I had to hurry home and begin packing for a trip to Seoul, South Korea. This is way out of the box for me. Other than Canada and Mexico, I have never been out of the US so this was a very big deal in my world.
With everything going on in the news I was more than a little bit anxious about making the trip but I am so very glad that we took a risk and expanded our vistas.
It was an amazing experience. We saw castles,
and we were even tricked into visiting the Demilitarized Zone (which may have been our coolest sight seeing venture).
It was seeing history as it is happening.
These ribbons are left by family members as memorials and testaments to their relatives separated by war and a divided country.
We discovered a robust and very modern South Korea
along with more traditional venues.
We experienced fantastic dining options.
Top Cloud, Seoul, South Korea
and the fish market.
We rode a bullet train,
went to the beach in Busan,
Shopped the largest department store in the world and the electronic district.
I've never seen so many cameras in one place!
But most importantly we were able to see our son marry this beautiful woman and meet her delightful family. They made us feel so welcome and went the extra mile to make sure our trip was perfect.
Lucky me, right?
We have been back for a couple of days and I still have my days and nights turned around but I am starting to feel like myself again and hope to be up and blogging again this week.
Have a wonderful weekend.
