After all the preparations and effort there was a mix-up with my travel plans. Turns out you must have either a return ticket or a visa to go to Korea. I had neither.
So the airlines moved my flight to next Tuesday May 26th to give me time to get my visa or return ticket. For the next week I will be living out of my suitcase just like I was traveling, lol. It does give me some more time to regain my strength and get rested for the long trip to come. Thanks again to every one for their patience and support!
