Seoul, Korea: Nami Island on a Cold Winter Day

Hi lovely peeps, sorry I haven't been blogging in ages because my life got so much busier. I can hardly believe this travel was exactly one year ago. Time has really flown by insanely fast. Anyway, this post about Nami Island is a continuation of my previous article on Korea trip.

We ventured out early and started the day with burger and hot choco at Joy Lotteria near Savoy hotel.

Boarded a train from Myeongdong station then we changed from one route to another until we reached to Gapyeong station.

We took a short taxi trip to get to the ferry wharf bound to Nami Island.

A few minutes later we were braving and heading into a heavy crowded ship. The ferry gradually pitched and rolled with the currents as we made the short trip to the island. I spent staring out the window the whole time admiring the scenery.

Nami, Naminara or Namiseom Island is 30 minutes away from Chuncheon and an hour away from the suburbs of Seoul. This half-moon shaped isle is also the filming site of the popular Korean television drama "Winter Sonata". This is probably one of the reasons why it is flocked with tourists.

Finally Welcome to Nami Island!

We managed to get around in only a few hours and even though it was freezing cold we succeeded to make it out alive. Honestly, it was pretty tough for both of us. But we certainly enjoyed this visit and we scored some lovely shots of the snow and the tree-lined lanes.

Back to Myeongdong we spent our night filling our tummies with delicious food.

After spending many hours walking outside the cold it was time for us to get back to the hotel. Unfortunately, I got struck with high fever. Then I started experiencing aches all over my body and uncontrollable shivering. :( Took some medication and vitamins, then crawl into my bed and passed out.

Since I'm so behind and I have so much to share about our Korea trip, I'll just probably be posting photos only to give you lovely peeps in the loop. And I'll be combining in some non-travel related posts as well. Hopefully, I'll be more diligent in blog posting. ;)

  1. This is a gorgeous place, and I won't soon forget it. Attended an event here sponsored by the company. The reception hour at the event space was held in one of the rooms next to the hall. I loved their buttery mashed sweet potato.
