Curious about the title? It says 'Welcome to Korea'...in Korean!
Looks like that is where we are headed in the near future!
We are excited but still a little incredulous and definitely overwhelmed. The company for whom he'll be working makes no provisions for shipping any household goods (HHGs) other than the tools he'll need for his job. Nor do they pay for anyone's plane ticket other than the employee. So anything we ship over as well as our plane tickets will have to come out of our pocket.
We do not know how long we will be there. Our plan (I know, I can hear God chuckling right now) is to sell anything that does not hold sentimental value or is not irreplaceable and put the rest in storage. We'll ship over clothing, bed linens (one set per bed), our school supplies (the basics, not everything), a few personal items, a few kitchen items I doubt I'll be able to find in Korea and don't want to rebuy, and that's about it!
I'm still trying to wrap my brain around it all. I"m really excited at the possibility for international travel, being able to see and touch many of the things we've studied in history, explore a new culture, learn a new language...and I'm overwhelmed at the idea of having to learn a new language, navigate a foreign country, learn a new monetary system, and be away from America. I've never set foot outside of the United States, other than a few hours in Haines Junction (Canada) on our way down from Alaska. I've never been to Mexico. Hawaii and Alaska are as close as I've ever come to living outside of the United States. So this is new.
Very, very new.
I'm thrilled that MacGyver has a job, doing what he loves to do and one that will take him closer to his long term goals. I just need to remember to breathe...
Pau. (I'm going to have to figure out what 'done' means in Korean.)
