Our visas arrived from the Korean Embassy today! We finally have everything that we need to leave the country! We were both very nervous about receiving our visas (and passports, since they take your passports when you apply for a visa) in time for our planned departure day. Luckily, we received everything in the mail today!!! So, we are all set with everything that we need — all travel documents and flights! Now, we just need to get all packed up.
I think it’s just starting to hit me now that we leave in about 3 days! We’re filling out time with last-minute visits with friends and family and last-minute shopping for things that we need or things that we need to handle before we leave. We’re excited and nervous for the travel experience that is soon to begin.
We started going through our clothes and belongings today to decide what will stay in the US and what will go with us. I need to keep reminding myself that I can always buy more clothes once we arrive. You don’t realize how much stuff you have until you start deciding what you really NEED for a year.
Unless we post one more time before we leave, you’ll be hearing more from us once we arrive in Korea! 🙂
