I can’t believe it’s actually happening. I’m currently on my way to Seoul - almost. I have a connecting flight in Tokyo, so I’m technically heading there first.
It’s been one hell of a day. I didn’t get a wink of sleep due to last minute packing (I admits that’s my fault for procrastinating) I had a 7:30 am flight that was scheduled from Seattle to San Francisco but it got delayed over an hour which made me miss my connecting flight. So now I’ll have an impromptu layover in Tokyo. Then it’s officially Seoul. My flight from San Francisco to Tokyo also got delayed 45 minutes. Seriously two delayed flights United Airlines?! Definitely my worse experience with them ever, I think I will opt for Asiana next time when I visit Asia if it’s going to save me all that stress.
I was suppose to arrive in Korea at 2:30 pm but with all the mess that happened today, I’ll probably land in Seoul closer to 10 pm. Then an hour trip to my hostel to meet with the rest of my groups. I’m was so annoyed, my mom made me bring gifts for our relatives in HK since I will travel there after my trip in Seoul but it’s taking half my luggage space so I was planning to take advantage of Korea’s (from what I heard, awesome) postal service and have it sent to Hong Kong when I arrive at the airport. Now I can’t do that so I guess, I’ll have to keep it for a day or two until I can mail them through using EMS. Okay and I’m done ranting. Honestly, thinking about it more I got pretty lucky they were able to rebook my flight today. Another classmate of mine was apparently also on the same Seattle to San Francisco flight but they were unable to rebook her flight, so she’ll be arriving a day later than us. I’m thankful my situation didn’t end up like hers.
Anyways OMG Korea!!! This feels so surreal…I’m definitely nervous but everyone is telling me that I should enjoy my trip to the fullest, have fun , go out, explore and don’t live in my little bubble that I sometimes tend to do because I’m shy. To a safe, fun and life changing trip!
