Seoul Magic! Part 4

Activity 6: Nami Island

A half-moon shaped island located in Chuncheon, came about due to the construction of Cheongpyeong Dam in 1944 and the name, Namisum came about because of General Nami.

That morning I woke up early to look out of the window. Weather forecast had it that it would snow today and we were anticipating to see our first snow. When we were waiting for our ride, snow it did and Grandmummy and C were thrilled to bits. Actually we all were and took the opportunity to quickly take a few pictures.

After an hour and a half we arrived. Here we waited for our ferry ride across to Nami Island.

The ferry ride took a mere 5 minutes and we were on Nami Island. It snowed every now and then and we were feeling the chills. C and Grandmummy warming up beside a camp fire. :)

More photos!

I had initially thought that these gigantic pots were props until I saw that she was selling buns.

 I love this picture. :)

Nami Island is an amusement park; not the kind that we are accustomed to where there are merry-go-rounds, and ferries wheels. Mr. Kang Woo-hyon, the CEO of Nami Island took pains to create an amusement park where nature is in harmony with art and culture.

Activity 7: Petite France 

This is a French style theme park and it is located in Gyeonggi Province.

Activity 8: Noryangjin Fish Market

This market doesn't sleep. It is open 24/7 and you can get just about any kind of seafood. I knew Grandmummy would love this trip so you could imagine her staring in awe of the size of these live seafood.

The train station we alighted.

We could pick the seafood we wanted, pay for them and have it delivered to a restaurant nearby for a meal there but we had plans to visit Dong-daemon so we didn't stay for long. Besides, some of the vendors were exceptionally pushy.

A photo opportunity of us before we started our tour around Dong-daemon.

The area is divided into five shopping districts and it sells goods of all types. Grandmummy bought shoes and so did Daddy. As for C, she bought toys, of course.

  • It's been a while since we sat ourselves in a plane. Definitely itching to fly over, to let our hair loose, to catch up with friends and be tourists.
