On their way

My mom and dad are currently in the air somewhere over the Pacific ocean. They have been flying since 11pm yesterday (my time) and will not arrive in Korea until 8pm today. Poor parents.

Here is the itinerary for their visit:

Mom and Dad’s Korea Adventure Itinerary

Monday June 26th

8:10pm – pick up at Incheon airport with hugs, smiles, and happiness. Bus transport (or perhaps car courtesy of boss) to the lovely town of Suji.

9:00 pm – arrival in Suji accommodations and get settled. Catch up on lost times, relax, get over jet lag. Eat if necessary.

Anytime – sleep

Tuesday June 27th

Amazing Race Challenge: Mom and Dad will walk to Lottemart on their own and experience Korean super-super-market as Jess did her first weekend here. Jess was scared like anything mostly. How will Mom and Dad feel? Mom and Dad will eat a small snack in Lottemart which will be an experience in itself. Remember to check out the second floor.

2:45 – Jess will leave work early and meet the parents at this time. Mom and Dad will be ready to hit the town despite jet lag. They will have a light lunch of mandu (dumplings) and bibimbap at the local Suji shop.

Too bad you can't shock your parents by having them go to Lottemart on a SUNDAY. That would really freak them out.
