We are in Korea!!!! Trip has been wonderful so far!

I had ice cream but they also served cheese and fruit

Second course

First course

We have arrived in Korea!!! The trip has been amazing so far!!! The flight to Chicago was smooth and quick!!! We had a 3 hr layover in Chicago and grabbed a Chicago dog for lunch!
We waited to board the plane to Korea and our names came across the intercom. I started to panic a bit! We headed up to the ticket counter and as they spoke Korean to each other they asked us to sit down for a bit. When the man came back he said that they were trying to get us better seats for our flight! Better seats is a understatement!!!! We were moved to Business class! I felt a little overwhelmed and the tears started to flow! What a wonderful way to start off a trip of a lifetime! We had our slippers, drinks as we set down, and lunch and dinner that was 5 courses! Also we had pods, with our own TV, gaming systems, you name it we had it! Seats that laid all the way back into a bed. We have been spoiled!!!
Our van driver was waiting for us in Seoul and took us to our hotel the Somerset. It is beautiful. 2 bedroom 2 bath with a kitchen and washer and dryer.

Dave and I decided to try to stay up so we went to sight see a bit. We saw a beautiful buddhist temple, and found our way to Insadong. We are now home and ready for bed!!! It is 6:30 in the morning at home and in our bodies right now!!! So night night! I hope you like the pictures!
