So as just about everyone can guess or already knows Ryan and I went home for Christmas for a very short week. For the first time in my life the song and concept of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" got played out and to the fullest extent I think possible, well for me any ways.
We started off by leaving our school at 7 to catch the 7:30 (left at 8) highway bus to Incheon International Airport. As we waited for the bus we tried not to freeze in what felt like the coldest night we have had yet. Once on the bus all warm and toasty we just had a short hour and a half bus ride to look forward to, but sadly traffic was crazy so it was more of a three hour ride instead. Once at the airport we jumped in a taxi van and headed over to the Hyatt which was on the airport grounds and checked in for the night.

We were greeted by my family once we passed out of the security area with warm hugs and a few tears. Ryan and I had successfully made it home for Christmas and to a white Christmas at that! We had a nice time catching up on a ride home through a winter wonderland. We arrived at Ryan's parents house about 11:30 (still on Saturday in some odd way of what seems like time travel) to do Christmas with his family and then head off on Sunday to do Christmas with mine.
We woke up Sunday morning to even more snow and it was still coming down making for a great "Knock off Christmas" with my parents!
More to come later on the whirlwind of a week at home.
