What an amazing trip!! Beyond exhausting, but beyond memorable and worth it. It took us 26 + hours to get home and very tired, so just a quick post for now. 12 days, 2 countries; made connections with strangers and old friends, reconnecting, traveled through my unknown and forgotten past, experienced tears, joys, laughter, adventure and what was already a close friendship purely through emails and shared experience became even more kindered spirits through a weekend under the blazing Thai sun. Not bad for booking this trip only 6 weeks ago in what was supposed to be a vacation AWAY from life. Give me a week or so and I'll post all about it. Took TONS of picture, journal and video. Must go to sleep right now. :) The greatest part about leaving is coming back.
I forgot to mention, but 4weeks ago, on a whim, I booked a trip to Korea and Thailand for Jason and I. I only have a few minutes to post here as we are literally leaving to go catch a train for the airport. Above, is me at 4 years old. Left was my passport when I came to the US, and right is before I left Seoul for the US. That is my foster mother (Kim, Kyung Sook) in the picture with me. Supposedly my mom says when I first arrived in the US I used to cry for her alot...I guess was confused why she "left" me.
