Honeymoon in Poland

We are having a wonderful time! Right now, I am sitting in our hotel in Zakopane in the Polish Tatra mountains, full of delicious Polish food and with very tired legs. Keegan and I have spent the past two days visiting with friends, eating ridiculous amounts of soup, good Polish bread, and delicacies from the grill, and hiking up ski slopes. I think they must be much better going down, because it's not so fun to walk up! The views have been rewarding, though. We are making good use of our new camera, which we have nicknamed "the most popular camera in Poland" because our friends Marek and Jurek both have the exact same model! Pictures will follow when we get back to Krakow on Thursday.

Z Krakowa

Czesc everyone! I am writing from Sylwia and Marek's apartment in Krakow just before going out for a traditional Polish dinner. Our flight went about as smoothly as possible with the only annoyance being that we didn't get to sit with each other on the long flight from Chicago to Krakow! We were able to get some sleep on the plane, though, and are feeling good. More updates to follow.

Welcome to the Blog!

Hello everyone. Thanks for visiting. I hope this blog will be one of the main ways that I stay in touch with all of you back home while Keegan and I are in Korea. I haven't added all the bells and whistles yet, but eventually you'll find links here to pictures we take with our new digital SLR (due to arrive tomorrow!) and regular updates about places we're visiting and new things we're experiencing.

For now, we are in the midst of post-wedding and pre-moving craziness. Our house is on the market (it's an adorable house, within walking distance of ODU, perfect size for a couple if you know anyone who's looking), we just got back from my cousin's wedding in Philadelphia (congrats, Chrissy and Ryan!), and are preparing for our honeymoon in Poland. I've started Korean lessons, and we are on a steady thank-you-note-writing plan. So posts may be short and sporadic until we get to Korea, but I'll try to keep you all posted.
