Soaking up the States

The big moving day is here! After 44 days of travel and preparation, Korea, here we come!

During the past 44 days we were  blessed to be able to spend time with family, and take in as much of America possible. While the journey was a long one, we figured soaking up the states wouldn’t be such a bad thing since we’ll be gone for two years.

Along the way we visited 18 of the United States: Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, and Washington!

Here are a few pictures from our adventures:

We had to get a candy apple in Seattle in honor for our last day in ‘Merica!



So our last American adventure was fun in Seattle…
