A few days in Korea

korea_mapRecently, I had the chance to spend a few days in Seoul and Daejeon Korea to work directly with one of our customers.  It had been about a year since I was overseas last, so my travel bug was starting to surface once again.  So off I went, on a Delta 777 that sounded like it was about to fall apart.  Most of my days were tied up in meetings being productive, which isn’t the best way to explore a new country.  Next time I’ll have to see if I can stay for an extra few days.  Korea was an interesting place.  There are multiple alphabets in use, nearly everyone has a new car loaded with tons of after-market electronic gadgetry, and you can get by surprisingly well without knowing a single word of Korean! The food was a challenge at times for those who can’t deal with seafood well, but that’s no excuse to be rude….try it, you might like it. I had a chance to do a little geocaching while I was in Seoul. This included my first intercontinental transport of a travel bug!

Two weeks in Egypt

Egypt has far too many sites to see, with more being discovered all the time.  I’ve never been so amazed and exhausted with a trip.  You can follow us on our voyage with my extension to the Google Maps API.
