Been a lot of depressing posts in here lately. I’m not judging, this whole deal is hard. I think it’s just the natural human tendency to be more likely to want to vent about issues than it is to talk about the positive things.
Just wanted to make a post about how badass my wife is. We have diagnosed level 1, but probably now is 2 10 year old, and a 2 year old son that is likely also on the spectrum somewhere. My wife just took them on 3 flight 30 hr odyssey to Istanbul, the 2 year old didn’t sleep, and my 10 year old caught a stomach bug and puked on 2/3 flights. Her mother was there to help, but how insane is this woman to subject herself to that? And btw. She did the same last summer with all three of our kids and the baby was 1. Not just a short trip either. She’s there for 2.5 months hopping around lol.
It is worth mentioning that my 10 year doesn’t really have “meltdowns” or they are at least very very rare. He does have some challenging behaviors tho. And my 2 year old is just like any 2 year old, emotionally unstable and insane.
I realize not everyone in here has an option to be this “tough”, for some of our kiddos some of traveling like this would be virtually impossible. But for the rest of us (myself included) I really believe there is some inspiration here. My wife and her mom came to the US as refugees from a war torn country, and while I’m not here to say they’re perfect parents or people, the way they just breeze through things In life like this has been wild for me to watch up close, I grew up exactly the opposite.
Watching them has really made me question how I make my decisions involving my asd kids and how I live my life in general. They simply don’t give one F about our kids having asd or that something’s will be harder. They spend 0 time worrying about it just deal with it when it comes.
Pic is my tired boys finally at their hotel.

2023.05.30 10:39 Best_Club_In_America Something doesn't add up about Alan Dershowitz: if Netflix "willfully misrepresented" his relationship with Epstein, why hasn't he STILL not sued them for defamation?

Something doesn't add up about Alan Dershowitz: if Netflix
Alan Dershowitz was Epstein's lawyer a decade and a half ago when he got caught the first time.
He also suggested that the public "keep an open mind" about Maxwell.
In 2015, Dershowitz went after the attorneys of one of his accusers and sought to DISBAR them for "defamation".
Okay, so he aggressively protects his public image.
And yet, a few years ago, while claiming that a Netflix documentary both tainted the Maxwell trial AND misrepresented his relationship with Epstein, "for some reason" he STILL hasn't sued Netflix for "defamation".
Why is that?
Alan Dershowitz Writes Essay Defending Longtime Jeffrey Epstein Associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Assails Netflix Documentary Allegations
Alan Dershowitz, who defended Jeffrey Epstein against charges that he had serially abused young girls in 2008, has written an essay in The Spectator defending Epstein’s onetime girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, who was arrested on Thursday and charged with six counts related to the trafficking of underage girls, including transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
“Like every other arrested person,” writes Dershowitz, “she must be presumed innocent.”
The lawyer then spent most of the rest of the essay assailing Netflix for its recent multi-part documentary, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, in which one of Epstein’s most prominent accusers says Dershowitz abused her multiple times while she was under Epstein’s control.
Dershowitz has confirmed he jetted to Epstein’s private island where sex trafficking allegedly took place, but only once. He says he was accompanied on that trip by his wife and daughter.
As for Maxwell, Dershowitz writes in his essay that he never saw her do anything untoward and assumed she was simply Epstein’s girlfriend.
My wife and I were introduced to Ghislaine Maxwell by Sir Evelyn and Lady Lynne de Rothschild, and we subsequently met her on several occasions — generally in the presence of prominent people such as Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nobel Prize-winning scientists, presidents of universities, and prominent academic and business people. We never saw her do anything inappropriate. We knew her only as Jeffrey Epstein’s thirty-something girlfriend.
Later however, Dershowitz negotiated a controversial plea deal for Epstein in Palm Beach County that shielded the billionaire from federal prosecution in 2008. Epstein pleaded guilty to a state charge (one of two) of procuring for prostitution a girl below age 18 and he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The deal also shielded Maxwell.
One year ago, Epstein was re-arrested after a cache of explicit photos of girls was allegedly found in his home. The financier was charged with sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy and faced a combined maximum sentence of up to 45 years in prison. Before he could be tried, Epstein hanged himself in his jail cell.
At the time, the New York Times said the arrest deepened “questions about why federal prosecutors in Miami had cut a deal that shielded him from federal prosecution in 2008.”
Today, ever the defense lawyer, Dershowitz urged readers of the Spectator to “keep an open mind about Maxwell.”

2023.05.30 10:33 SpicyWednesdays Help: Passport Expiration 3 Month Stipulation

Hi there, I'm visiting extended family in Europe and my US passport will expire 2 months and 21 days after my planned return date to the US. I was (obviously) unaware of the 3 month buffer required between passport expiration and return date until I was checking my bags for departure with Delta. The attendant called someone within Delta and confirmed it will be a problem for me to return and I could be stranded due to my return being 9 days inside the 3 month expiration buffer window. She gave me an override and said to change my flight while I'm Europe to meet the requirements. I'm wondering if anyone else has faced this conundrum. I would rather not leave the trip 10 days early but is this the only way to meet the 3 month deadline? Could I possibly receive an extension or exemption from the nearest US embassy?

2023.05.30 10:33 WeissMISFIT Pilot outfit questions

Hey everyone,
I'm planning out a pilot outfit and I'm having difficulty picking and choosing helmets. So there are two routes that I can take: Rotary wing or Fixed wing. With a Rotary Wing outfit I would be able to use the HGU-56 helmet but it looks really bulky, especially for airsoft. A Rotary Wing outfit does come with the benefits of greater gear flexibility and would look correct whether I wore a one piece flight suit or a multi cam outfit. You can also choose to wear a plate carrier or just the survival vest which is nice. This would also be the cheaper option. I'm going to reiterate that the helmet looks extremely bulky which is my primary concern with this choice. I've also read that the HGU-56 can slightly limit peripheral vision.
With a Fixed Wing outfit I would be using the HGU-55 which is a bit more expensive and comes with a few more limitations. I wouldn't be able to use a plate carrier or multicam uniforms as part of my outfit. I would be limited to just the flight suit which I dont mind. The helmet looks much cooler in my opinion and there's the possibility of adding in the oxygen mask although that would be restrictive on breathing. There's also the G-suit trousers as another piece of restrictive clothing but because those pants are needed only on aircraft capable of 4G+ I think I can get away without it.
So all up: Helicopter outfit - more customization, less restrictive but the helmet is really big, its huge. Plane outfit - less customization, way cooler, more restrictive, a bit more expensive.
I'm interested in a pilot type outfit, I'd rather play in jeans and a hoodie over spending money on a SOF/soldier outfit so please dont suggest that. I'm aware of pilot attachments for BUMP helmets, I'm not a fan of those.
Types of gameplay: Short skirmishes anywhere from 20 minutes between rounds up to 1 hour per round.
Weapon: M4 variant just like in real life If I end up doing MILSIMs or games at large fields I'll probably integrate a UAV of some sort into my kit, I've got experience with FPV drones and I'll be able to build something to roleplay as the pilot.

2023.05.30 10:30 DestroyatronMk8 The Privateer Chapter 119: Varma Award

First Previous
Five thousand warships of the Vrrl Starfang Empire exited the Gate to Brilend Prime. The majority of the fleet was made up of battlecruisers and carriers, each built to resemble a stylized Vrrl in mid-leap. The fanged maws of the Vrrl warships were open, ready to unleash the devastating Ion Roarcannons the Empire was known for. Above each maw were three glowing green eyes, and four arms tipped with razor sharp claws stretched forth from the bodies of the beasts. Yvian knew from personal experience that the arms weren't just for show. They were fully articulate, and used to grab enemy ships in preparation for boarding actions. The back half of the ships were large rectangular blocks, bristling with weapons.
Yvian could only imagine the Military's panic at the sight of so many enemy ships. Vrrl ships were an order of magnitude more powerful than Confederation vessels. Even a small fleet of Vrrl battlecruisers could wipe out a sector, and they were famous for their love of sapient flesh. The Vrrl were nightmares in the Confed, second only to the humans. Even a Xill fleet could not have inspired more dread.
Yvian herself was sitting next to a control node on the Skygem. Mims, Kilroy, and Scarrend were with her. The crystal ship was parked inside the Priderender, Warmaster Scathach's ship. One of the handful of destroyers accompanying the fleet, the Priderender was a six kilometers long diamond. One half of the diamond was much longer than the other, giving the ship a dagger like appearance. It's hull was the color of blood, and it boasted two Roarcannons and hundreds of other weapons.
It hadn't been that long since Yvian had been in the sector, but the Confed had been busy. Between the Militia and the Military, their were over twenty million ships in the system. Civilian craft were still fleeing, streams of ships heading for all three of Brilend Prime's Jumpgates. Those heading for the Gate the Vrrl fleet had jumped through were all scattering and reversing course.
Heavy weapons platforms had been set up throughout the sector. Missile towers were being towed into place, five kilometers around and stuffed to the brim with heavy ordinance. The Military were taking the Vore seriously. Not that it would do them any good.
Nearly a full frantic minute passed before anyone hailed the Priderender. The few thousand Militia ships that were stationed near the Gate were all fleeing. Four million of the closest Military ships had turned, moving to form up with each other so they could engage the Vrrl as a group. Yvian listened in as Warmaster Scathach answered the hail.
"Attention Vrrl ships. This is High Admiral Bruck of the Confederation Military. You are in violation of Confederation space. Leave now or be destroyed."
"This is Warmaster Skrell Scathach," the Warmaster answered. "Sheathe your claws, softpaw. We are not here for you." As he spoke, the Vrrl fleet plotted a course for deep space, in the direction of the incoming Sphere. "It is the Vore we have come to hunt."
"Leave now or be destroyed," the High Admiral repeated. It was a threat the Admiral could back up. The Vrrl fleet was a match for Confed force six times its size, but the Military had them outnumbered four thousand to one.
"We are leaving," the Warmaster told him. "We will exit your solar system in fourteen hours to meet the Vore in deep space."
"Your assistance is unnecessary." High Admiral Bruck spoke slowly, a menacing anger infusing his otherwise professional tone. "Leave our space now, or face the consequences."
"Consequences?" The Warmaster scoffed. "It is you who should consider the consequences, High Admiral Bruck. You do not have the forces or technology to destroy us."
"I've got twenty million ships that say different," Bruck argued.
"And how many of those can match our speed?" asked the Warmaster. "Your fastest capitol ships move at a third the speed of my slowest. Our weapons outrange yours." Skrell Scathach released a rumbling growl. "I'm only bothering to speak to you to keep you from wasting our time. We will hunt the Vore. If we succeed, your planet will be saved. If we fail, we will die." He softened his voice to a more reasonable tone. "I won't ask you to show your belly, softpaw, but I will give you a choice. Leave us to our hunt, and take the time to prepare for the greater enemy. We will avoid your ships and stations, and do all in our power to destroy the Vore." His voice was matter of fact, and scarier for it. "Or you can fight. We will still face the Vore, but we will do so leaving your shattered hulls and broken bodies in our wake."
"Is he bluffing?" Yvian wondered.
"He is the Warmaster." Scarrend said with obvious pride. "He doesn't need to bluff."
"Most of their forces are preparing-" Mims cut himself off as High Admiral Bruck gave his reply.
"Do you really think you can destroy that thing with just five thousand ships?"
"Our weapon has worked once before, High Admiral Bruck," the Warmaster told him. "But I can give no guarantees."
The High Admiral mulled that over. After a few seconds, he said. "Very well. We won't stop you. But if you come near my ships or my stations I will personally blow you out of the sky."
"Well spoken, High Admiral Bruck," Skell Scathach approved. "Perhaps your paws are not so soft after all."
The next twenty hours passed slowly. The Warmaster kept his word. The Vrrl fleet kept its distance from the Confed as it moved into deep space. Yvian slept as best she could. The Skygem's living quarters had been furnished, but the ship's habit of filling itself with methane meant she couldn't remove her helmet and get comfortable.
When she stumbled back out onto the bridge, Mims stood. "My turn. Wake me if anything happens."
"There's no need for such distrust," Scarrend chided. "The Vrrl Starfang Empire honors its agreements."
"I have no way of confirming that," said the human.
"Trust is unnecessary," said Kilroy. "This unit is sufficient to prevent betrayal."
"Normally I'd agree with you." The Captain yawned. "But the Vrrl are just as resourceful as humans, and they know about you. It's possible they could come up with countermeasures."
"I wouldn't let them," said Scarrend. "I've sworn my life to yours."
"I told you I don't want it." Mims stood up and stretched. "To tell the truth, I'm pretty sure no one's going to try anything, but we're sitting in the only weapon we've got that can stop the Vore, along with two of the only three people capable of wielding it. Not to mention that Yvian and I are basically heads of state. A little paranoia seems like a good idea."
"Perhaps." Scarrend gave a thoughtful rumble. "I still think the fission bomb is excessive."
Yvian looked over at the bomb in question. It was a nuclear torpedo. Mims had rigged it to detonate by remote control. Yvian, Kilroy, and the human each carried a detonator. The human and the Peacekeeper seemed casual about it, but Yvian was still nervous about hers. What if it went off by mistake?
"Probably," the Captain admitted. "The bomb will destroy us, the Skygem, and any pieces of it big enough to offer scientific value. It'll take out the Priderender, too, but death threats are sort of wasted on your species."
"My species," huffed Scarrend, "has not broken a treaty once in our entire history."
"Your entire history is less than two hundred years," countered the human.
"Wait, what?" Yvian looked at the Vrrl. "Is that true?"
"You didn't know?" Scarrend cocked his head.
"That can't be right." Yvian tried to scratch the back of her head, but had to settle for scratching the back of her helmet. "How could a species achieve space flight in only two hundred years?"
"We didn't," said the Vrrl. "We took our technology from the gods themselves."
"The gods?"
"The Varma," Captain Mims clarified. He flopped back down in his chair. "The Vrrl are genetically programmed to treat them with respect and reverence."
"Genetically programmed?"
"The Vrrl didn't evolve naturally," said the Captain. "They were bioengineered." He looked over at Scarrend. "You mind if I tell her the story?"
"I suppose." Scarrend leaned back in his chair, folding his upper arms behind his head. "I'm curious to hear it from a human perspective."
"Alright." Mims yawned again. "The Varma were a minor power. They controlled six sectors, and they shared a border with three other species they hated. They sort of bordered the Federation, too, but it was two months travel from their space to ours, so we didn't really interact much."
"The other three nations hated each other just as much as they hated the Varma, so no one was willing to form an alliance, and no one was willing to commit to a total war knowing the other species would jump in and genocide their asses at the first opportunity. It was a stalemate that had lasted for centuries."
"The Grinjaw, the Yauwen, and the Holii," Scarrend provided. "Villains and weaklings, barely worthy of being called prey."
"If you say so." Mims moved on. "Anyway, the Varma weren't particularly advanced with ships and weaponry, but they were masters of bioengineering. Mostly because they never outlawed it like most sane species do."
"Isn't genetic manipulation a basic part of medical science?" Scarrend asked.
"Sure," said the Captain. "But experimenting to make new life forms is a whole other thing. Us humans made that mistake a couple of times, and almost got ourselves genocided. Now any attempt to make new creatures or 'enhanced humans' is met with immediate and overwhelming force."
"Huh," Yvian grunted. "I was taught that humans modified themselves a long time ago. That that's how you became such monsters."
"Propaganda," he told her shortly. "Anyway, the Varma decided to make themselves an army. They picked out the nastiest, scariest predators they could find, and modified the hell out of them. It took half a century, and a lot of horrific experimentation, but they eventually engineered their perfect soldiers. Hyper intelligent, hyper aggressive monsters with a pack mentality and a taste for sapient flesh."
"They designed you to eat intelligent life?" Yvian's eyebrows went up, even though no one would be able to see.
"They designed us to crave it," said Scarrend. He shrugged. "We can survive on animal flesh, but it is far less fulfilling. Similar to how you can subsist on water, but constantly yearn for beer."
"The Vrrl turned out to be a huge success," Mims continued. "Not only were they effective in combat, but they could breed rapidly, and their heightened intelligence led to a serious upgrade in weapons tech. In less than a decade, the Vrrl formed the backbone of the Varma Military. They spent the next twenty years or so hunting the other three species into extinction."
"We consumed the unworthy in the name of the gods," Scarrend agreed.
"Yeah." Mims ran a hand over the back of his neck. "Anyway, the Varma had just started consolidating their gains and taking possession of their three shiny new planets when everything went wrong. Some bigshot decided they didn't need a hundred million Vrrl army anymore. Tried to cull them down to a more manageable number."
"We still don't understand why the gods turned against us," Scarrend admitted. "We'd done everything they'd asked."
"Fear, maybe," guessed the human. "Or maybe they just didn't see you as people. You were a genetically engineered slave army, after all."
Scarrend growled.
"As you can imagine, the Vrrl didn't take kindly to being killed off, gods or no gods." The Captain moved on. "They fought back. The Varma had the upper hand, at first. They'd ordered the Vrrl off their ships before the killing started. The real problems didn't start until some of the Vrrl managed to commandeer a Military ship. They got blown out of the sky, but not before they could get a message out. The half of the Vrrl that weren't supposed to be killed were still out in the void, armed to the teeth and piloting the most advanced ships the Varma could muster. The message told them three things."
"The gods are killing us," Scarrend intoned. "The gods can die..."
"And the gods are fucking delicious," Mims finished for him. "We think it was a side effect of the genetic programming. Any Vrrl who tasted Varma flesh became instantly addicted. The war that followed was barely a war at all. It was more like a feeding frenzy."
"Our people's greatest mistake," Scarrend said mournfully. "My ancestors ate every single god with no thought of the future. Now they are gone, and no Vrrl will ever taste such succulence again."
"And that's why most species don't do bioengineering," the human finished. "Slave armies aren't a good idea in general. Designing them to be stronger and smarter than you is worse. But programming them to eat you?" Mims shook his head. "Ever since we got the story, humans use the phrase 'Varma award' to describe anyone too stupid to live."

Author's Note: I'm gonna take a week off. I've got a thing I gotta do out of state, and I'm not bringing my computer. I'll make it up to you when I come back.

2023.05.30 10:26 Fanta_the_soda Is the unlimited snacks and drinks truly unlimited?

I have a 5 hour flight coming up a good while from now and my brain needs to know every little detail about everything.
Is the snacks and drinks really unlimited. I'm a soda fiend (as you can guess from my name) and I don't want to seem excessive or overly gluttonous when asking for 4 ,5 or 6 cans of soda throughout the flight.
I thank you for your responses in advanced!

2023.05.30 10:26 Lerch2000 Some Suggestions for Cryptic

1) Dilithium Store in Account Bank (Raw and Refined):
Currently to get the dilithium refined we have to build the ore up per character. One of the reasons to buy additional character slots in the game is to increase the amount of Dilithium you can refine on a daily basis (this is a huge help for non-lifers). You can even sell the unlocked storage in the C-Store (like how people have to pay to increase their EC cap.

2) Increase the flight angles:
This is supposed to be ships in space, not wine bottles, it is stupid to force us to corkscrew to get to different elevations. I know this is possible considering STO uses the same engine as Champions although an updated version. (characters in Champions Online cannot get a true ascent or descend (it use to be a lower angle, corkscrewing) but they did change it over the years where it is dam close.

3) Recruit Receivers, and Transponders:
Allow us to drag these to the quick bar so we can access them faster. At one time certain items in the game allowed for this, currently I think that the Frost grenade for visual effects is the only one (so the option is possible). When these events launch I normally make a new toon from the current event, and to view my progress I have to open the inventory search for the recruit item, double-click them scroll down. this is a lot of effort just to view one's progress.

Hi, what is the best method (money - and time-whise to travel from Lindau to Hamburg this fall? The DB takes about 9,5h and is about 85€ for one way. A flight from munich costs the same with about 6h of traveling.

2023.05.30 10:21 MaybelMaybe87 Flying after emergency landing - possible triggers

I have a trip coming up that I’m probably going to cancel because of an experience I had a few years ago.
I was on a flight back from Hawaii to SFO a few years ago that turned around over the ocean a few hours into the flight. The pilot then came on a few minutes later to announce that we were experiencing hydraulic failure or issues, I can’t remember the exact term he used, and that we needed to go back to Hawaii to land, because we needed a longer runway. The flight attendants became quiet and seemed nervous to me, and really everyone on the plane was just really quiet after that.
When we landed back in Hawaii, there were fire trucks and paramedics lined up and people cheering. I was so dissociated from nerves at that point that it took a moment to realize it was for our flight that they were cheering for. The landing wasn’t bad honestly, but we landed pretty hard and we were going faster than usual for longer.
There was zero debriefing, which I couldn’t understand, but definitely huge relief felt once we stopped. We had to wait a few hours to get on another plane to take the same flight back to SFO.
I know we landed and no one was hurt, but what keeps me up is thinking how serious it was and and how had the maintenance crew not caught it? And how had they only noticed several hours in, over the ocean? I also couldn’t find any news coverage of the flight, so it makes me think it’s possible that it happens more often than we think?
I was never a nervous flyer before this, I really enjoyed the take offs and views, and getting time to read. I’ve flown in bad weather and on transatlantic flights with so much trust. But this has me really panicked about an upcoming work trip. If anyone has any insight into this kind of situation, how this was missed, or any reassurance that it was mostly procedural an, I’d appreciate it. And if anyone here has gotten over their fear after an emergency landing or mechanical issues, I’d love any tips.

The Creation Legend

The Creation Legend

A very long time ago, Raven was flying over the big waters and saw a beautiful fish woman swimming be low.
Raven fell in love with her and flew down to ask her to marry him.
The fish woman was happy to see him, but before she would marry him she made him agree to one condition.
"I will marry you, Raven," she said, "if you will make some land so that I don't have to swim all of the time and I can dry my hair on the beach."
Raven agreed to her request and flew away to make land.
He wanted someone to help him so he went to find some help.
He flew around until he found a seal swimming in the warm waters.
"Seal," said Raven, "I need some sand from the bottom of the sea.
Will you dive down and bring up some for me?"
Raven was very clever and did not tell the seal what he wanted the sand for.
Seal replied, "I will have to ask Frog for the sand."
Raven thought for a moment and said, "If you will ask Frog to get the sand for me, I will grant you both a favor."
"Oh," said Seal, "I'd like to have a shiny, warm coat of fur to keep me warm instead of these slimy scales.
Then I could swim in the colder waters and keep warm."
Raven promised Seal the fur coat if he'd get the sand for him.
At once Seal dived to the bottom of the sea where he found Frog.
He told him of the Raven's request and promise to grant them both a favor.
Frog told Seal, "Tell Raven that if he wants my sand he will have to make me Keeper-of-the-Earth's-Treasures, once and for all."
Seal was amazed at such a request but told it to Raven who was also amazed.
"That's asking for a lot," Raven said, "but tell Frog that if he gives me the sand I will grant his request."
With that, Seal again dived down deep to speak with Frog, all the while wishing that he had asked for more than just a fur coat.
When he told Frog that Raven agreed, Frog filled an old frogskin with sand and gave it to Seal.
As soon as Raven had the sand, he flew high into the air where the wind was blowing the strongest.
Then, he opened the frogskin and cast the sand into the wind where it was scattered to all four corners of the world.
Every place that a grain of sand landed, an island was formed.
Some islands were bigger than others because some sand grains were bigger than others.
Once the land was made, the fish woman walked on the beach and dried her hair for the first time in her life.
She agreed to marry Raven, and from their marriage came the great Raven clan.
For their help, Seal received a warm fur coat and Frog became the guardian of the earth's treasures.

2023.05.30 10:09 Hairy_Celebration_57 I Got Severely Told Off This Morning!

Hubby and I live in an attic flat, there's 4 flights of stairs up to the flat.
We were getting ready for work and our cat, Wopsie wanted to go out. It was dead on 8am. She has PTSD and other issues from being homeless and abused before we took her in November 2022. Hubby said he'll let her out then I can let her back in when I'm finished.
Because of her conditions, she only likes to be out for no more than 15 minutes and she'll just hang around the back yard, never going any further.
By the time I'd showered, dressed, collected my wallet etc. went down all 4 flights and let her in, it was now 8:20 instead of 8:15. I opened the door for her and she was NOT a happy lady! She stood on the first 2 steps looking up at me like she was saying ''Excuse me! How dare you keep me waiting, you vile creature! I was out there, being laffed at by the birdies for extra time!''
I apologized most profusely and explained I was showering, dressing, grabbing my things and throwing myself down 4 flights of stairs and that ''you were only out for an extra 5 minutes, your most gracious excellency!''
She went ''MEOW'' quite angrily, literally sat there with her back towards me then ran up the stairs at speed!
I called out ''babes, I love you loads and don't let the birdies laugh at you!''
She'll forgive me tonight when I feed her, she always does! OMG she's great!

2023.05.30 10:06 Positive-Orchid-3422 Contemplating big itinerary change... Jeju instead of Seoul for our honeymoon (September 2023)

Hi! So first of all, I have already done lots of research and created our September honeymoon itinerary. 10 days in Japan (Tokyo, Hakone, Osaka, Kyoto) and then 4 days in Busan, and 4 days in Seoul. But I'm suddenly having second thoughts about Seoul and instead contemplating going to Jeju instead.
Though I do love cafes and eating, my husband is less into city/concrete jungle and we are not big on shopping, and in general the itinerary for Seoul is a little more pedestrian. I'm worried after the first leg of our trip (Tokyo/Osaka/Busan), we will be sick of the city and also won't be as into the palaces/historical buildings. It seems Jeju has a lot of nature and is more unique/romantic. And has those adorable orange hats.
I don't drive, but my husband does, and I've seen it's recommended to rent a car.
I have always wanted to go to Korea, but realistically probably won't be back anytime soon. What do you think? Would we regret skipping Seoul for Jeju? Our flight back home is from Incheon at 11:35pm, so perhaps we could allocate 3-4 days to Jeju and our last day partially to Seoul.
