Celebrate good times, come on!

Some great news on our journey, FINALLY!

We picked up our visas from the Korean consulate in Toronto today. This was the last document we needed to be allowed into Korea, and the process was long and stressful. Needless to say we were extremely excited!

That excitement carried us back to Peterborough and straight to the slot machines at Kawartha Downs, hoping to extend our luck. $20 each and 5 minutes later we admitted defeat and went home to book our flights.

Miraculously we decided to book tickets on a day when flights were significantly cheaper then any we'd seen. We were expecting to pay around $1000 each but managed to find flights for $716 which included ALL taxes. Thank you Air Canada!

So it's official:

Feels so good to finally have a departure date!

  5. I meant to add earlier that it's nice to hear there are some other Peterborough folk floating around Busan. It's a small world, there are quite a few of us.

  6. hi there,
    just wanted to ask when you guys sent in your documents to EPIK...how long did it take for them to get back to you regarding your Notice of Appointment? I am waiting for mine right now and people are saying that the earliest would be in June??? Just curious how long it took you guys...all this waiting is killing me!!!
