Our New Home, Our New Country
At the end of the month, we will say good bye to our home in Geneva. The past month, we have been preparing for our 4th international move in 2 years. I have been waiting for some time now to share our news and now I have the green light.
In November, Nicholas received a job offer with Samsung in Seoul, South Korea. We will be heading back to the US in February and moving to our new home at the beginning of March. We will have a few weeks to find an apartment and try to get settled before Nicholas starts work the first week of April. We have several friends in Seoul and many Korean friends who have offered to put us in touch with their family and friends. We feel very lucky to have the support system we have for this next move. There is no doubt in our minds that this will not be as easy as moving to Switzerland and learning French and adjusting easily into the culture. We have talked at length how even just reading a street sign will be challenging in our new home. The good thing is we both are very open-minded and excited for this next chapter and won't let little things like a street sign or menu stop us :)
We have already started our Korean lessons and will continue studying intensively until we arrive. Once there, the company will get us enrolled in classes. Nicholas will have class everyday as part of his job. Stay tuned- looks like 2012 may be one of the most interesting years yet for us!
As ALWAYS our door is open for visitors, don't be a stranger!
