THREE DAY BREAK AGAIN! And this time it was off to Incheon!! Unlike our Mokpo trip, this one seemed to be characterised by IMMENSLY good timing!! We exited English Village just in time to take the free early morning shuttle bus in to Ilsan. We took the subway into Seoul where we decided we should buy a tent. (The conversation went something like, "where should we stay tonight? ..."I know! Lets buy a tent!") I love it! Thats the best thing about travelling with no reservations or concrete plans and a day pack as your luggage -plans change, and it's great! After some brief discussion and an internet search at a nearby computer we decided to head into the massive market of Namdaemun (It's crazy, there're a few computers in the subway with a high ... read more

Greetings from South Korea!! Well we're not bad children (taking so long to contact you) but for some random reason there is no phone service here?! So now we're back at the airport for day 2 and we thought we'd give you a little run down on The A team's adventure thus far..... Ok so the flight over was great. We got under way right on time and the plane would have been less than half full. None of the middle (4 seaters) rows were taken at all so it was a free for all amongst those "polite" people to grab them willy nilly. Adam and I were quite happy with our seating (Adam got the window seat) because we weren't over the wing not to mention the fact that there was copious amounts of leg ... read more

Hi again. Well this is actually the second time I've updated this blog. Apparently the computer wasn't as reliable as I expected and swithed off half way through. Anyways.... Yesterday morning saw us wake an an absurd hour (3.30am) and head off to the airport to board our first of 2 10/11 hour flights. Yes a few tears were shed (mainly by us girls) but it was generally excitement buzzing around. On the flight we discovered that Tyson has the amazing ability to sleep for long periods of time in uncomfortable surroundings. (5 hours in a small plane chair) Sam slowly mastered Soduko and crosswords and attempted to watch a Korean movie with English subtitles (not successfu. lThe afternoon part of the flight was a little more successful with an English with Korean subtitles film being ... read more

After 19 hours on a plane (Total), I've landed. Korea is very easy to get around, everything is in Engrish and everyone wants to practive their engrish. And the people are obnoxiously, By the time I left the airport I had two offers to give me ride to my hotel. I'm used to people telling me to keep my bags firmly by my side and 'if a gypsy throws a baby at you, swat it to the ground,' so it has been an adjustment when people grab my bags and carry them for because I looked weighed down. My hotel picked me up at the airport and walked me to my room. It was awesome!!! It looked like a prison cell from the outside my opened up to a quaint minimulist style apartment, including TV, which ... read more

This is not my first time in Korea,i fly there like 20 times,but everytime just stay for one nigth only so its a little bit difficult to go out and enjoy!This trip i found many good colleaqes who love to travel,so we hanged out together.Normally most of crews dont have much time for adventure coz we have to use lots of energy on board,lack of sleep for all night long or whatever so all they wanna do is sleeping as much as they can do or just a little shopping is great enough.But thats not me,i cant sleep for all day and night long even i feel tired i would just take a nap and once my energy come back then i have to go out! My parents or some of my friends even ask ... read more

Asia » South Korea » Incheon August 27th 2006 Renee and I have been planning this trip for about two years now. A study abroad for the fall semester at Ewha Woman's University in Seoul, South Korea. Our friend Soo Won took us to Koreatown in New York City one day and we fell in love with all things Korean right then and there. Anyway, after planning and setting everything up with a "love her to death, put in your pocket and keep her forever" Professor Yoo we were finally in the taxi on our way. Two hours later we arrived at JFK. Security was faster than we thought, so sitting at gate for at least 45 minutes allowed our minds to race in all directions. "We are finally at this point" "I'm not looking forward to this plane ride at all" "You know ... read more

Just when i thought i got it all figured out...bang...welcome to Korea. Let me backtrack a bit. Left Chaing Mai on Monday nite train...thought i'd be ok with just a fan...mistake. Not as great a train ride as the first time. Oh well..i slept most of the trip. Get into BKK. and i feel like a pro..I know exactly where i'm going to stay for the next several hrs., how to get there, how much the taxis and tuk tuks should charge me...ya...i'm cool. After a nice cold shower i head out for a coffee and a bite to eat..a bit of window shopping then back to to guesthouse for yet another shower before going to pick up my luggage at the train station. Get a taxi to the airport...and the waiting begins. First off...i used ... read more

I got up early this morning so Mr Kwon could drive me back to the airport. I tried to ask him if, say, any buses happened to pass by through airport square but he was very insistant on taking me back to the airport. He couldn't seem to get it out of his head that I was actually going to stay put in South Korea, that I wasn't actually just there for an overnight stopover. So I gave up trying to explain the whole thing and just let him drive me back to the airport. He helped me out of the van, along with my rucksack, and pointed to 'Departures' insisting, "You go there!" Then he drove off. I was at the Incheon International Airport which is technically in Incheon, but not really. Incheon, the real ... read more

Most of today was taken up with my unGodly all day flight (from 7am - 9pm, with a swapover in Hong Kong). The second plane ride which was spent sitting behind a man who just couldn't live without crushing my knees. I always get the seat behind the one person who will push his seat back. Then, he started stretching his hands all the way over his head rest and leaving his hands right in front of my little seat TV. I watched Memoirs Of A Geisha with some creepy man's hand in the way. It's the only way to watch it. When I landed there was a lot of confusion. Confusion was to be the basis for my time in Korea. The airport is on an island, on a piece of reclaimed land, far away ... read more

Hi guys! I've decided that instead of sending everyone group emails while I'm away, I'd subscribe to this Travelblog site. This way, you guys will all get an update whenever I update the site, but it's up to you as to whether or not you want to check it out, and hear about my latest adventures. So with that said, just a quick update for everyone. After a 30-something hour day (over 14 of which were spent in the air) Mark and I have arrived in Incheon, South Korea. We have a 24 hour layover here before our last leg of the journey into Bangkok, Thailand. So far, everything has been great. With the help of one too many travel pills I slept for more than 9 of the hours in flight, and the hotel that ... read more
