We have started a new chapter in our life now. The dream of sailing around the world is not over. In the mean time we are still hopping all over the globe. Next stop, Seoul Korea!
Barry went through Warrior Transition course in June. Then he went to Newport News Virginia for his AIT (schooling). I drove from Utah to Virginia with Justice’s help, stopping mid-way in Oklahoma to see family. We met wonderful people and enjoyed the historic area. We recently drove with Barry back to Utah via Oklahoma, and then spent the Thanksgiving holiday with my family in St. George. The very next day I saw Barry off to the shuttle and he went to the Las Vegas Airport, to Norfolk Virginia, to Seattle, to Japan, then Korea. You may ask why that route. I say it is the military (enough said).
We will be joining him soon. We are flying to Seattle Christmas day. We are Barry’s big Christmas Present. We would like to stay in Korea for 3 years. Why? You may ask.
1. He gets a bonus (we have debts to pay)
2. We will come away knowing a foreign language.
3. Are we worried about the conflicts in South Korea? Yes and No. The media is making it out to be a big thing, while it is not good, it is not the first time North Korea has clashed with South Korea. They have always been at war. The military will get us out if there is a big enough threat. Something bad could happen to me stateside. At least I will be with my husband and the family can be together.
We still plan on getting a boat when our military life is over. We may do some sailing in-between as well. Welcome to our new adventure!
