Huge surprise to me that I've gotten my iPhone to work here. I brought it just for the camera functionality. Another surprise is that my macBook Pro is not working and can't figure that one out.
I am not allowing myself to think about the roaming charges :)
So, a little travel tip- if you get inadequate sleep the night before you leave, it is easier to sleep on the flight.
Another tidbit - don't fret too much about the time difference. As long as you are rested, that is the most important thing.
Fortunately I am with night owl young folks and I am actually energetic when they are.
And even if you feel a special bond with your daughter; even if you are proud of her courageous globe-trotting, nothing beats a hug. That afore-mentioned bond gives a mom leeway for hugging a little too hard maybe a little too long.
OK, if these kids, er young adults, don't wake up soon (it is 10:30am) here, I am going to the textile Mecca Dongdaemun by myself!
Koreans are warm and helpful people, I find.
Love from South Korea!
