It makes the most sense for me to take an overnight train to the airport and lurk until my flight to Seoul. Which means saying goodbye to my parents on the 13th. I'll have a 'romantic' Valentine's day with Monsieur de Gaulle and then arrive in Korea on the 15th by flying into the future.
Charles de Gaulle. Hmm... Pass. Maybe when he was younger?
That's less than 2 weeks away. If you look to your left, at the archives, you can see that I started planning this adventure about 3 years ago.
And now I'm leaving in just under two weeks. And I don't even have my visa yet.
