OCT 18, 2018 OUR WORLD TRAVELER IS IN KOREA!

“It’s What I Do” is the category I picked for this post because traveling IS what Cap does.

Cap has landed in South Korea as of about an hour ago and we have spoken, so far, five times.  He is in good hands.  Our Alaska friends, Terry and Kathy, have been living in South Korea for almost five years now and met Cap at the airport.  They will be his guides, so to speak, for the five days Cap is there.  They are now on a bus going from the airport to Terry’s and Kathy’s neighborhood.  Korea is a country Cap had not yet checked off on the world atlas, so this is new territory for him.  His last call included his first impressions:  SEOUL IS A VERY NICE, MODERN CITY, REMINDING ME OF HONG  KONG.  I thought he would like it.  I did when I was there in 1988.

Korea is 17 hours later than/ahead of Alaska, so, at 12:35 am here now, it is 5:35 pm in Korea.

I am going to go to sleep!

Thank you to all of you who have been wishing Cap safe travels … so far, so good.

Goodnight … Patti


OCT 17, 18 .. THE DAY HAS FINALLY COME .. OFF TO SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA

A few weeks ago (September 23rd) I wrote a Post that we would wish-our-lives-away if we could do so.

The day that I have been wishing for has finally arrived. In a few short hours, I will board a flight from Seattle bound for Seoul, South Korea. And this, in a long line of wished for great adventures, new adventure will begin. A nice short visit in Seoul with Terry and Kathy, I’ll speak at a few meetings, and then off to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Next up, after a week-or-so in Ulaanbaatar, comes Irkutsk in Southeastern Russian Siberia. Irkutsk will (I hope) prove to be a great adventure. I may get a place of my own and stay-awhile.

 

Get Directions

 

When Patti is at the proper moment, with regard to her dental procedures now underway, she will join me.

The time has come for me to grab some sleep. I am, more or less, asleep on my feet. Greg and I enjoyed a great meal at a Chinese restaurant in downtown Seattle’s Chinatown.

So?

Over and out for now.

It is fun to know that, if I have some errors in this Post, Patti can sign in here and make whatever corrections are necessary.

Smiling .. Cap
