About The Choquette’s

Andrew and I met and fell in love 3 years ago in Chicago.

Today, we are living in Seoul, South Korea where we plan to stay for at least the next 2 years. This is to be the story of newlyweds who picked themselves up and moved across the world the day after their honeymoon. Andrew is working for Samsung as a global strategist and Mary’s future career will unfold here before your eyes.

I am going to use this blog as a means to journal all the ups and downs, share our experiences with friends and family at home, and attempt to document what it is like to be in a country that is not our own but is to be our home. I’m also hoping that it is such a colorful and vibrant account of life in East Asia, that all of you are compelled to come visit. Our door is open.

    I’ve left three or four comments, but they don’t seem to be posting. Must be hitting the wrong button, so will try to hit the right one this time. This is a test. I’ll see if it works before I write more. Love you, Dad

  10. Hi Mary,
    My name is Sarah, a complete stranger who has enjoyed your blog tremendously! As the world is soooo small, my husband, myself and our itty-bitty son, Henry, happen to be moving to Seoul in August in order for Mike (husband) to work for Samsung, GSG- The Empire. Needless to say, your adventures have been inspiring, scary and wonderful to read! I’d love to ask you some questions about your move and the day to day bits and pieces of life in East Asia….
    By the way, I’m happy to bring over as many packets of Hidden Valley Ranch as your heart desires. Who can really live without it?

  11. Hi Mary! Total stranger here, blogstalking you. My boyfriend got an offer for the GSG program, and we are seriously considering moving to Seoul. I would love to chat with you about your time there! Visas, job opportunities, and lack of peanut butter – oh my. I realize you now have your hands full (congratulations!). Any guidance you can provide would be extremely helpful! Drop me an email if you get a moment!
