Parents in Korea - Day 1
2014.05.10 @ 삼성역 & 강남역

It took me almost four years, but my mom and dad finally made the trip out to see Korea. I spent nine days being a tour guide, and we saw just about everything there is to see in Seoul. I also used this trip as an opportunity to do a few things that I've been meaning to do for the last few years. The next few posts will be devoted to their trip.
