Venturing into Naminara



So, I woke up kinda late to get ready for the shuttle. Which is fine cause I did figure I would take the train. Anyway, today I spent time checking out Namiseom.

Now why would I want to go there? Especially if it nearly took me two hours to get there??

The nature aspect of it REALLY appealed to me. To be able to walk about…was just nice.

I went to Gapyeong Station, and walked to the Tourist Center. She said if I was only going to go to Namiseom (cause most people do more like Petite France), that I could run across to the bus area as it was about to come. The bus is the regular metro bus. The cheap one. You can take a taxi, or shuttle, but paying a buck to get there was fine with me.

Once there, you have to walk through the parking lot of the crowd of tour buses. Then you will see the Nariseom ticket place. If you show your passport, you get 2000won discount. So I showed her.

It says foreigner on it, so the people who check your ticket will notice and say hi whole asking where you are from, in English.

From there, you wait a short while for the ferry.

There isn’t a whole lot to do at Nariseom, but I rented a bike (3000won for 30minutes) and toured about. My favorite was actually sitting at the edges of the island. Just sitting and listening to the water.

If you go towards the middle, there are a bunch of restaurants, so you can grab a bite to eat. There is also a lady who is making red bean steamed buns.

Yes…that statue is doing…something…interesting….

Anyway, there really isn’t more to report on it…so I’ll leave it at that. I’m meeting my cousins family tomorrow at Myeongdong. Hoping it won’t be too insane, since my aunt has has a few accidents in the past year due to falling (damn stairs), and since she is older, she has had trouble recuperating. Nevertheless, I’m excited to see them both :)
