A little late...

I am posting up photos from our study abroad trip to Korea now because I was kept very busy during my time in Korea. I was always doing something and didn't have time to update this at all while being there. Sorry if anyone has been waiting for updates! I will definitely be adding more pictures and blogs about the trip.

We arrived back home in the USA 3 days before christmas. It was a great experience and the most memorable moment(s) of our lives and in college. We are very happy that we took the chance to study abroad and to experience something totally new. Going from a small town of Whitewater to the largest city in Korea, Seoul. We did so much there and ate so many new foods! We love KOREAN FOOD! We're sad that we're back home and are wishing to go back one day. But we're also glad that we're back home to be with family and friends.

The best part of Korea was definitely making new friends!
- MPL, from switzerland.. Thanks for everything that you've done for us! You're one of the biggest reasons why we survived Korea and why we enjoyed it so much! You always brought laughter and joy to us and we'll never forget you! We can't wait to visit you and go back to Korea again with you! We love you and miss you lots!

- HJL, our awesome Korean buddy! You've satisfied us very much! You introduced us to great food and have taught us so many great things about your country and culture! We always enjoy hanging out with you and you have shown us the greatest hospitality! We wish to meet with you again in the future! May you always find happiness and joy in everything that you do!

- EHK, our beautiful Korean friend who always listened to our issues! :)
You listened to our childish problems and always found time to hang out with us even when school was so frustrating already. Thanks for showing us Itaewon and COEX! You're an amazing person! Please remember us!

- Boss and friends. We're so lucky to have met you and your large group of friends! Because of you we were able to be closer to k-pop! You guys found so many opportunities for us to take to experience the K-pop wave! We will never forget you guys! and please do not forget us! We hope to meet you guys again in the future! Take care!

I will try to post up videos also. Please come back and check out new posts!! Thanks!
