Ruth Ayres has a link-up on weekends where people link to posts that are celebrations about their week. I love this reminder to celebrate every week and I appreciate the community we have through this link-up.

This week I'm celebrating the purchase of tickets. I didn't feel like I could get super excited about my trip to Asia until we actually had tickets. A month ago we started talking about the possibility of a trip and this week we finally made the purchase. We are getting into the more serious planning now and I started up my app to practice Korean. My mother-in-law and I will be flying to Korea. We'll stay with the family of a former exchange student for part of the trip and then go out on our own. Then, we will fly to Japan and meet up with a former exchange student to visit and then we will do some sight seeing on our own there too. It's not a super long trip, but it should be a lot of fun. Part of the fun of trips like this is doing the research ahead of time and looking forward to the trip. If any of you have suggestions, we'll be in the areas of Seoul and Tokyo. Have a great week!


  1. It is super exciting to be in the planning stages for travel and especially now that you've booked your tickets. I've never been to either country, so no suggestions, but I will look forward to blog posts about your travels! Are you going in the summer?

  2. How exciting! I have no doubt that you will enjoy the trip. Fascinating destinations. Having someone waiting for you makes it extra special.

  3. Oh excellent. I wouldn't have been excited until I had the tickets either. So fun!
