If you want to feel loved you should move overseas, come back home and then leave again

The summer is over! This last week has been packed with meals with friends. I really feel like moving abroad has helped in us making a point to see people. You know how usually, time just passes by and suddenly it's been years since you've seen so-and-so from college? Well, that happens to me a lot,  but this summer I made it a point to meet up with people I hadn't seen in a while before we leave North America for another year.

While you read this post, I would appreciate you opening this in another tab and listen as you read.

Goodbye Heibert's...

 Hello ride to Korea!

Ooooh check out that plane! It's called the Dreamliner. It's new and it's awesome. We would know because we were on it for 11 hours today. This is going to give Asiana a run for it's money. The seats are comfy, there are tons of good movies to watch on your touch screen tv, and, our favorite feature, the windows are better. The windows are slightly bigger, but instead of shades, they dim to a dark blue. We could control it ourselves, but once they wanted people to sleep, they dimmed all of them. It looked like nighttime outside, but we could still see some things (Whistler-or some other huge mountain near Vancouver-for one).

I learned today that after about 22 hours of being awake, I can fall asleep in almost any position. We're back in our apartment now, exhausted, but glad to be home.

  3. Irish- you touch the lives of many. I think most of here feel admiration for you leading your family on the giant life changing and impression making adventure. Life really is a journey. Wish you and your family lots of love and laughs! Amy
