Travel Day

We left the local U.S. Airport at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday, August 30.  We left our connecting flight at about 1:00 p.m.   Our flight was sort of long, but we made it.  We arrived at our hotel almost 24 hours later with only about an hour of interrupted sleep.  We both agree that it went pretty smoothly except our legs were extremely restless by 2 hours before arrival time.

The notes in the guidebook from our adoption agency made it extremely easy to navigate the Korean airport.  Our driver spotted us immediately.  

We went to exchange our money  and my Dad noticed that he lost his wallet on the plane.  Our driver took my Dad immediately to Korean Air lost and found.  My Dad left a report.  He didn't think we'd see it again.  A few minutes after we arrived at our hotel, the airlines called us.  They delivered the wallet about three hours later for a small fee.  I had told my Dad that I felt that God is carrying us.  We tried to tip the driver, but he wouldn't accept.  

Korean Air is the way to fly internationally.  The crew served us 2 meals and at least 2 snacks.  I think they offered drinks 3 times, always with a smile.  

Whoever suggested to bring a handheld fan on the flight was a genius.  It helps to calm the nerves and the Korean flight was hot at certain points in the flight.

We ordered a pizza and went to bed at about 10:30 p.m. I woke up at almost 4:00 a.m.  That sounds like how I sleep at home.

I want to thank all of you that are praying for us without ceasing.   I can feel your prayers.  They are working.

I am so excited that it is only one more day until we meet Faith.  I will hopefully post pictures of our trip later.
