Winter in Seoul – Day 3: Nami Island

Winter in Seoul - Day 3 Nami Island - BRYOLOGUE

*extremely picture-heavy post*

(Applying for a visa to South Korea? You might want to read here how to quickly check the status online!)

Since we have started travelling together, Mon and I have never woken up early for the following day’s activities. We usually leave at around 10:00 AM the earliest, or even almost lunch time the latest.

However, it was different for the third day of our trip. I set my alarm clock at 7:30 AM because we had to travel all the way to Gapyeong to visit Nami Island (although the title of the post is misleading because Gapyeong is NOT in Seoul.

We were to originally go to Petite France but we have half-decided the night before that our first priority was Nami Island, and should we have more time, then we’d visit Petite France.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

I didn’t know about the difference between the two, not until three years ago. =D Anyway, I posted and emailed the exact thing to my friends moments ago. Our attempt at a “greeting card” and a “White Christmas” to boot! =D Nami Island was an amazing place for this, albeit it was extremely cold and we had to cover our faces and ears! It is currently 9:17 PM here in Manila (well, it’s already 25 in New Zealand anyway) but regardless, I still wanted to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

Happy Holidays Jay Ar and Bry
