This was our family first long overseas holiday and I am really satisfied going around Korea for 2 weeks. Our 3 years waiting time was finally paid off.
🙏🏻 I want to give thanks to Jesus and I am really grateful for His perfect protection upon us while we are going around Korea.
😘Thank you to my super duper excellent itinerary planner since he was studying about Korea for about 6 months.
