"Words have no wings, but they can travel a thousand miles" (Korean Proverb)

Welcome to Flying Words, Jon and Aileen's blog of our adventures in South Korea! We will be in South Korea for a year, starting in mid-July, teaching English in a private school. We just graduated from college this past May, and are looking forward to having some adventures before continuing our education. 
We started this blog to keep all our family and friends updated and to share our photos and stories. We hope this is entertaining for you! We will miss you all, and are very thankful to have the internet to keep us in touch.

We're here!!!

Hey, so we made it to Korea!! I definately wrote 2 nice blog posts on my laptop, but we found this internet cafe before somewhere with wireless soo...guess you'll have to wait to read about our trip here. :)

Right now it is about 8 am, and we are wandering around the city. It's a nice city, and we can kind of figure out what some stuff is, by pictures or random English signs. We found a 7-11 to buy something to drink in....and a Domino's. I dont think they quite have the same menu as the ones in the US....they had a huge picture of a pizza with crab, octopus and noodles on it! It's really hot and humid here...good thing we have AC in the apartment...at least in our bedroom. (I'll write more about the apartment etc later when I post pictures of the apartment and our neighborhood!)

Today at 1, our school director's wife is picking us up...I'm guessing to go to the school...she didn't say when she dropped us off here last night.
