Sep 25, 2014 - Jeju, South Korea

Pete had a good visit in Jeju for the last time this contract. He has enjoyed Jeju and the other ports in South Korea. It is interesting to think about him having "favorite"destinations so far away from home. He will visit there again in April, 2015, when the Voyager leaves its winter home in Sydney and heads north for the summer in Asia. As of today, Pete has traveled 68,803 miles since he left Indianapolis 29 weeks ago.

Pete had a good visit in Jeju this week. He has really enjoyed his visits to the South Korean cities and has favorite spots to shop and eat when he visits those ports. He has not posted any pictures lately but he did send a short video of himself playing his mom's "theme song" on his clarinet in what looked like a rehearsal area on the ship!

Pete checked in from Jeju and everything is fine. When he called, he was walking into the city to use the wifi and get something to eat. He said it is about a 25 minute walk from the ship to where he likes to do business in Jeju. We quizzed him about a picture he had sent earlier - it showed him holding a can of Seaweed-flavored Pringles! He said that he did not actually taste the Pringles (which is probably a good thing) and that they have numerous other flavors of chips that seem strange to us!

Pete checked in from Jeju and he was expecting a good day, planning to visit the city for some food and wifi with some of his friends from the ship. He has still not heard anything official about his contract extension or his next contract but expects that things will go as planned. We asked him about sending a box for his birthday and he said he would plan to wait to celebrate his birthday until he got home but, in the context of the conversation, he did tell us that he had finally received the missing package of reeds he ordered. He said...

Pete had an interesting visit in Jeju this week. He went with some of his friends to the Manjanggul Lava Tube, a cave-like lava formation that is 200,000 - 300,000 years old! We have posted several interesting photos from his trip. Also, he did a little shopping to get himself a new watch, since his old one broke. Everything is going just fine. The ship itinerary has been changed for tomorrow - they will be heading to Fukuoka, Japan, rathere than to Busan, South Korea. Pete said they had a couple weeks' notice about the itinerary change so...

Everything was fine when Pete checked in from Jeju. He was planning to go into the city but wasn't sure what the plans were because his friend, Hannah, was making the plans for the day. The weather was nice with temperatures in the 80's. He also mentioned that he has had some preliminary contacts with his agent regarding his next cruise contract but nothing definite is in place yet.

Peter called from Jeju and things were going well. He let us know that the ship itinerary was being changed slightly because of a typhoon in Japan. The only alteration to their schedule at this point was to leave Jeju an hour earlier than planned but, as the tropical storm season gets into full swing, we will be keeping track of the storms on the other side of the world, as well as the ones that affect the United States. The ships carry very sophisticated weather equipment and they do not venture into the areas of tropical storms so they...
