My sister moved to South Korea in February. Knowing that we would be in Asia for our work-related meetings in May, we planned our trip so that we could visit her before coming home.
We spent about a week in Seoul touring the area and visiting with Ashley. It was the week of Seoul’s lantern festival, so the whole city was covered with colorful paper lanterns.
We stayed in Ashley’s apartment and helped her get it more set up. We made pancakes in her tiny kitchenette almost every day we were there and enjoyed them around her small table. She bought an air mattress that we put out on the floor every night. It was tight fit for all of us, but we had fun.
We also saw the English school where she works and met some of her colleagues and students. It was a great week, and it was exciting to see Ashley thriving in a new country.
