American Couple Who Sheltered Korean Tourists In Blizzard Visit Korea

May 15, 2023

Last Christmas, we shared a story about a New York City couple who provided shelter to a group of Korean tourists during a snowstorm.

The couple has reunited with their guests in Seoul for a 10-day tour of South Korea.

On Dec. 23, 2022, a bus carrying 10 Korean tourists got stuck in the snow near Buffalo, New York. Two men in the group decided to knock on the door of a nearby home to ask for shovels to dig the bus out and keep moving.

Instead, they were invited into Alexander and Andrea Campagna's home until the blizzard passed.

Fast forward to May 2023, the Campagnas are now on a 10-day tour of South Korea. The couple arrived on Saturday at the invitation of the Korea Tourism Organization.

They have also reunited with their guests from that unforgettable Christmas.

"To see everyone in Korea again is such a blessing," Andrea Campagna told reporters. "They ended up in the right place at the right time," she said. "Now we have people we can call friends for a lifetime."
