  1. OMG! So much chaos, I couldn’t imagine having to navigate all of that in a foreign language! Kudos to you and Won for making it through with your sanity relatively intact – the painting is very nice and well worth the trouble! 😂

  2. There is a special place in heaven for you both, after going through this ordeal. You will either further perfect your sense of humor, or you will kill each other. Enjoy journey.

    1. Ha! Ha!! I’m banking on perfecting our sense of humor!! Won and I like each other too much. By the way, Won told me to tell you that he’s selling American gum for $1200. A real steal. He wants to know if you are interested.

  3. OMG, Beth!!! How you remained so calm, cool, and collected and still managed to smile and be nice, is incredible after all of hurdles and surprises you incurred. You and Won must be totally in sync with each other to have mastered this move and still like each other. lol It should be smooth sailing from here on.
    Thank you so much for providing such an amazing collection of stories from your adventure. Sit back and enjoy the results.
    Looking forward to your future posts and photos as you discover all of the wonders of this unique place.
    Love, Aunt Dianna

    1. The reason we moved was to challenge ourselves and boy are we being challenged!! Ha! Ha! We’re looking forward to being more settled every day. Hopefully, future posts will be less stressful – to write and to read!! 😁👍 Sending my love, Beth ❤️

  4. I think the biggest hurdle we faced with this was the delay in communication. If I was able to get in touch with you faster we probably could have made a different delivery decision. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  5. OH. MY. GOD. Adam and I laughed and laughed. Well, now you know. At least that part is over. From our perspective, that was very entertaining to read. When you write your screenplay about all this, you’ll have excellent notes. Love you both!

    1. Honestly, we couldn’t remember what we out in those boxes except for the All Clad. Once we opened the box, we remembered that we were just tossing in items we didn’t want to throw out, but didn’t make sense to store. Won’s looking to see if anyone’s interested in buying some American gum for 1200 €.

  7. WOW, I have a feeling you will laugh about this for a long time. Costly, but an experience you won’t forget! LOVE the picture of Sweetpea and that alone may be worth the cost. Enjoy the ride – it sounds like you are finally getting to the point where enjoyment will be your every day.

  8. So THIS post is the subject of tonight’s dinner conversation. And based on your excellent and detailed process discussion ( though painful), creating a flowchart to guide us through this maze.

    1. Don’t forget to read the blog post after that one. And, by the way, I’m picking up the story again. I’ll be posting what we’ve been doing since Feb 19 to get the car registered. Keep me posted on how things are going. I got Pam’s note saying she and Marta have begun to dialogue about your housing preferences. Super exciting!

    1. We love that portrait. The woman who painted it, lives in Quebec. She’s phenomenally talented. Her name is Dominque Routhier. She has an Instagram account. You can check out her work at “artrouthier.” (I hope you took a break after reading that post…it’s exhausting to read). LOL!

    1. No lie…it was quite the experience, but we got through it successfully (with slightly less money in our pockets, of course…😂). And, we love that portrait of Sweet Pea. We’re so happy it’s here with us. Enjoy that scotch! 👍🏻😁
