Wow... what a trip so far. Rhonda and I left Detroit around 7:45pm on Saturday evening. After landing for a brief but WARM stopover in LA, we were onto Seoul, Korea. The longest flight of my life. The flight was 13 hours. And somehow we have misplaced Sunday. I'm sure it's around here somewhere, but not here, because it's 7:29am on Monday!! Korean Air is wonderful - even in coach they have the best amenities. However, instead of being icy cold like most long distance flights, our flights have been super warm.
We're in the Icheon International Airport - waiting for out next flight, and man, what a transition! Some people speak English, but not so well. In order for us to get food (and kill 4+ hrs) we had to go out of customs/immigration, which we weren't expecting! But alas, we survived.
Next stop - Vladivostok! And hoping to meet a little guy in the next day or so. I am filled with excitement, nerves and the unknown. Keep you posted later!!
