Korea Trip - Day 1

26th March 2011, Saturday

Safely landed at Incheon Airport At 630am. It's early spring in Korea with 2c temperature, WOW I like!! After collecting all the luggage, immigration kami disambut dengan mesra oleh local tour guide Ms Jennifer  Shin. (very warm, pretty and talkative guide). Rombongan diberi masa untuk freshen up, while waiting for our bus. Jennifer bought me a strong kaw cup of coffee which is very helpful for a cold weather. Outside the airport, wow I just lurve it, mulut berasap asap bila bernafas...mengalahkan pengalaman summer in London.

We get onto the bus, hari ni busy touring, but just a light one cos baru sampai from KL, a tiring night on the flight, Jennifer decided to bring us to Nami Island..yeah!!!! Most of the rombongan pergi Korea ni actually just to see Nami Island. Aktiviti wajib cos mau mengimbas kenangan cerita chenta si Winter Sonata. Journey takes about 45 minutes from Incheon Airport to Nami Island. While inside the bus, Jennifer introduce us a little bit about Seoul. The river, the transportation, the culture, geography, weather and so on. Geezzz....the scenery all brownish, pokok pokok kayu yang tinggal ranting, botak... a little bit of saki baki snow di atas rumput...i hate this scenery....
