Braving the cold while we're waiting for our bus to Seoul
With a very cold temperature.

Weeks before we (the HolyWeek Travellers http://www.byahengbarok.com/holyweek ) even left Manila, I’ve been religiously checking out the weather and the temperature in Seoul and Busan. A year ago, it was suppose to be spring at this time of the year (April). But as we were nearing our departure date to Seoul (March 30 to be exact), the climate doesn’t seem like spring to us at all. Blame it on climate change!

Nevertheless, we prepared for the battle… against the cold temperature, of course. I dug up all my long sleeve shirts, jackets, bonnets, gloves and tights. I asked my sister, who’s based in the US, to bring us (me and my son) thermal jackets when she came to visit last February. I even went on a last-minute shopping spree in Greenhills to buy more thermal undergarments, bonnets and scarves… as if what I already had wasn’t enough.

So to say that we’re all geared up for battle is an understatement. Our 20-kilo luggage and 7-kilo hand-carry bags were all filled with everything to beat the cold.

As soon as we got out of Incheon International Airport around 9:30pm and waited for our bus to downtown Seoul, we immediately felt the pang of the cold temperature. Even sitting down on the concrete benches at the airport’s bus stop was such a torture. It felt like we were sitting down on a freezer.
