Sep 18, 2014 - Seoul 1 - Out On a Limb

Before I started the trip, since it was so open-ended I made a conscious decision to choose a random place in Asia and just go. It's the craziest, least cost effective thing I've ever done in my life, but there's no chance to do it again. I juggled with visiting hong long, shanghai, Taiwan, phillipines. But after some talking to some Canadians earlier in the trip, I couldn't shake going to one place. I had to go to Korea. Hey, their hoards of tourists are always taking pictures elsewhere, thought id return the favor! But seriously, what...

Sep 4, 2014 - Seoul, South Korea

Pete visited Seoul today and things were fine. This will be his last visit to Seoul during this contract, since the ship will be changing it's home port to Hong Kong in a couple of weeks. He still has another visitor two to Jeju and Busan in South Korea before he starts making more stops in Japan. As of today, he has traveled 62,587 miles since he left Indianapolis 26 weeks ago.

Aug 25, 2014 - Seoul, South Korea

Pete checked in from Seoul where they had an overnight stay. That made for kind of a weird performance set-up on the ship. The band was scheduled to play a big band set in the evening but, with the passengers free to stay in town late, there were only about 50 passengers expected to even be on the ship during their set so they weren't expecting a big crowd. They did play, though, and it went fine. Several of the guys from the band went into the port town of Incheon to see the sights and get something to eat. The highlight was apparently...

Pete had a fine visit in Seoul where he took a tour of the city. He sent many pictures from the tour. The lead singer who knocked his tooth out was planning to be seen by a dentist in Seoul to see if his tooth could be repaired. Pete says he has a significant "hillbilly" look right now! Everything else is going well.

Aug 3, 2014 - Seoul, South Korea

Pete checked in from Seoul and things were going well. He sent a picture of a large vat of Sangria that was the featured refreshment from the crew's "Sangria Party" the night before. Because they are bringing the new singers and dancers into the performance schedule, they had some extra technical rehearsals during the day so Pete did not leave the ship in Seoul. The new performers have recently been in rehearsal in Miami so things were going pretty smoothly already.

Pete checked in from Seoul and things were going well. The weather has been fine where he is, despite the tropical storms in Japan, etc. He and Andy are continuing to communicate through What's App, a service on their smart phones which allow them to leave voice messages as well as text messages and pictures at a low or no extra fee.

Pete checked in from Seoul and things are fine. He and Andy are using some new technology to communicate - Instagram for pictures and What's App for voice messages - and the results are very good. He sent a couple of good pictures from the Great Wall (which I will post later) and Andy was able to send him a picture of Andy and I with Pete's clarinet teacher from IU, Mr. Klug and his wife, who we ran into at a summer band concert in Bloomington this week.

Pete called from Seoul and things are going well. They have an overnight stay in Seoul so will probably have a little longer time to explore the city but, as usual, the Royal Caribbean port is a long way away from the city so they will have to figure out transportation that will work within their time constraints. So far, they had mostly spent their time eating BBQ! From the pictures, it looks like he and his friends are having fun.
