There’s something warm about this place, although that day was particularly cold. Maybe it was me, happiness sorta brings warmth, right?

We arrived at lunch time. The subway ride took almost 2 hours, and we had to take a cab to the get to the ferry. There are actually few alternatives to get to Nami Island, please check this out. What to do in Nami? We just walked and walked, enjoyed the cool air, took (tons of) pictures, and stopped by for a glass of hot green tea latte. A good day  indeed.

'till we meet again, Nami!

Around 4 pm, we left Namiseom by Ferry, took another cab to the subway station and headed back to Seoul.

Next on the itinerary were Namdaemun Market and Myeongdong. Woohoo..my wallet was about to cry.

Buy now, regret some other time!

One thing about Myeongdong, the area is basically a mother ship of all Korean branded cosmetics, so treat yourself while you’re there. The cosmetics’ original price were pretty much cheaper than in Jakarta, for instance.

We called it a day at around 10pm. Beaten and (a bit) broke.

The next day would be our Jeju Trip, wait up!
