If you look for a crazy, wacky place to visit here in South Korea, one of the places you will find will be The Poop Cafe! Yup you read that right. The Poop Cafe! Lol. The first thing I thought when I came across this was ‘Who in the world would come up with this?’ Followed by ‘Who in the world would go there, and why?!’ The answer is simple. Curiosity. It piqued my interest enough that my mom, the kids and I just had to go.

Since the kids had no school today, I decided to take the family out and search for this mysterious and intriguing place. I had been hearing about this cafe from a few families that I meet during the kids events, but never had the time to take them there. Today seemed the perfect day to go try this place out, so we did. We decided to take a cab there since we were not exactly sure of where this place was, and whether or not there might be parking available for a van. Good thing we did.

WHY YOU SHOULD PLAN FOR EMERGENCIES

One of the topics that David and I discuss is evacuation. We are not hardcore survivalists by any means, but we try to be somewhat prepared for just about any situation as much as possible. This is harder when you are traveling visiting another country, but a necessity when you are residing in another country. Especially when you have more than yourself to consider, which is why I wanted to talk about it right here. Have you ever thought about what you would do, or where you would go if something happened? I would bet that most would say no to this question. It is an absolute necessity to have a plan regardless of where you are, but most especially when you are outside your home country.

Incheon Airport: Why it is one of the best in the world!

I wanted to write about Incheon because after our experiences in the Philippines, as well as in China, it has really made me appreciate what we have here. I was curious and looked up the best airports in the world, and was pleasantly surprised to see that according to this Business Insider article , Incheon ranks 3rd out of the top 15. We have also been to Singapore’s Chiangi Airport and have to agree that it definitely belongs on the list of best airports in the world.

“Why it’s awesome: Incheon maintains its place as once of the world’s elite airports with a third-place finish. Located on an island just outside of the South Korean capital, Incheon is home base to Korean Air and is the 24th-busiest airport in the world. It opened in 2001. Incheon’s highly regarded facilities feature an array of shopping and dining options, in addition to a bevy of cultural performances. The airport even has a Korean culture museum.”

Monster Messenger App

Our family seems to constantly be on the move. We both grew up moving from place to place first with our parents, and now with our family. We seem to have a big problem with itchy feet.

     One of the most important things for families that do this is finding a way to communicate with loved ones via long distance. Well for us there is Facebook, Skype, Whatsapp, Instagram etc. But is it really kid friendly? Unless the parent is there constantly looking over their children’s shoulder, the answer is no.

Surviving is hard, but Adventure is living! Day 1 in Cebu

Day 1: July 3 (Airport experience)

Today started off very early. We left for Seoul station to get an express train to the airport at 16:30. This train has set schedules and takes about 45 minutes and costs about 30,000 won for all of us. There is a bus (airport limousine) by our apartment, but it stops a lot and costs 15,000/person, and takes about an hour or more. Our flight to Cebu is not until 20:50.

This was a very interesting experience and a bit nerve wracking. One of the things that I forgot when I booked Timmy’s flight, then our flights to the Philippines, was the TIME DIFFERENCE. Timmy left the states on the 1st of July at 11:30 a.m. but he made it to Incheon at 6:30 p.m. We had enough time before our flights to get a quick bite and say hi, before we had to board the plane. This was actually pretty frustrating that we got on the plane at the time that we did expecting it to leave at 20:50. Our plane did not leave until an hour later due to bad weather conditions.

Our FIRST cruise!

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PREPARING FOR A CRUISE

We have been anticipating this cruise since September when we first booked it. Since this is our first cruise ever, Mary was stressing out about a few things like:

Do we need visas?

One of the main things to consider before traveling to a foreign country is having the right paperwork on hand so that you will have no problems entering or departing. In this instance, since we have valid passports, we wanted to know if we would need any visas. Mary contacted the number referred to us for Royal Caribbean International who handles visas etc. Visas were not required for either country. Supposedly. Just to make sure, we wanted to have that in writing, and handy for when we do board the boat. The documents showed:
