At the moment I am just trying to calm my nerves due to the fact I really, really hate flying. The only way I know how to do that is focus on my knitting. (Well, I could break into the bottle I bought at the duty free shop, but I think they frown on that kind of behaviour.) I have packed two projects into my carry on, because I was worried I might finish the pair of socks before the plane touched down, and me on a plane without needles in my hands is not a good thing.
I asked the lady sitting next to me to take a picture of me writing my blog. She was very sweet, but also very chatty. This picture cost me twenty minutes of valuable blogging time.
Here's the reason for my trip, my Seoul connection.
Rebekah is teaching English in Guri, just outside of Seoul. I can't wait to spend the next couple of weeks visiting with her and Anton, having conversations that are in person instead of via Skype, sharing some great Korean food and maybe a little bit of Soju, and hopefully reconnecting with some old friends who are currently living in Seoul.
