Blog 1 - February 1

This is the first entry of my photo-journal, documenting my transition from Adelaide, South Australia, to Seoul, South Korea. It will be updated every Monday for the next three months.

The front and back garden of our home of over 25 years. I only hope that it is just as 'cup of tea worthy' when we return.

Damien and I have been wining and dining for the past few weeks as we say goodbye.

Lunch last Saturday at Angela and Jeff's with Paula and Richard, my sister and brother in law. Thanks for the plums we picked, I made a delicious cake with them.

Breakfast this Saturday at Joy's across the road with neighbours Brian and Monika.

Last visit to the beach house at Sellicks on Australia Day.

The next few days will be more dinners, packing and goodbyes.

This time next week, the post will come from Korea!

Hello Susan

What a fabulous idea.. a great way to keep up with your new adventure.

I will try to get around to see you tonight before you go. I called in on Sunday and dropped of the instructions for your knitting project - good luck with that. I am nearly finished the cushion.
Love Helen

Hi Susan and Damien, dear friends I'm really going to miss you. Travel well and enjoy.

Well Susan it's hard to believe you have arrived already to another world, let alone another climate! You look to be well organised and the views from the apartment look wonderful. It's fantastic being able to see these parts of your journey.
Stay well

I miss you already! This is my 2nd attempt to leave a message, oh, where is Dominique to help! I am working on this abstract for the conference, so I hope there is place for me on the couch.
It looks pretty serene in your flat and pretty large. The views remind me of Germany in winter. I am looking forward to the food pictures and recipies to go with them, if possible and once you have tested them
Give my love also to Damien
