Traveling to Korea with a PA and Seafood allergy
We are trying to plan a trip to Korea, more specifically JeJu island, Yong In University and Seoul. My son has a life-threatening peanut and seafood allergy and my husband has an allergy to shellfish. My son is 15 years old and has studied Tae Kwon Do with the same Korean instructor since he was 4 years old. We would be traveling with this instructor and his family. He would have the opportunity to train at the University where his Master trained. This is something he really wants to do. We just can't seem to find anyone with a peanut or shellfish allergy, who has traveled there.
We have traveled to England. And we know that we need to make arrangements with the airlines. We will use United, because they have been the most user friendly. We also will bring Chef's cards in Korea and will bring instructions in Korean for medical treatment if we needed it.
I just can't seem to find anyone who has done this before. Is there anyone out there, who has done this or knows if we can safely travel here.
Thanks so much
