Seoul: Day 1-morning

Reached Incheon Airport, Seoul, South Korea at 8.20am local time. Reached hotel around 9.20am. The airport to hotel took about an hour.

our hotel stay

Our Hotel Stay, Friend Hotel. That’s my husband posing at the hotel sign.

The hotel is situated at Seocho-Dong, Seocho-Gu, Seoul. Quite far from Central Seoul. We’re finding our way to Central Seoul. Most probably will be going to Itaewon today looking for Muslim food and mosque.

Walking down the Seocho-Dong street, looking for plug adapter. Failed the first time.

Went second time in the heavy rain and found an electric shop. Borrowed the receptionist’s umbrella. Later we bought 2 umbrellas. Can’t wait for the rain to stop. It will be raining the whole day today, tomorrow and Monday. Tuesday is predicted to be clear, let’s hope me and my other half can do a lot of travelling on that day.
