Away on a weekend: Nami Island

by | |

Traveling is the last thing on my mind during Holy Week (which was weeks ago). It's probably because I grew up in a family strictly observing the lenten season. I remember my grandmother actually scolding us (just a little:) when my aunts, cousins and I were hysterically laughing out loud while practicing some production number for our family reunion (yeah, we do stuffs like that,haha) and so we had to kinda shift to a somber mode again (but still stifling our giggles!lol)

ANYWAY! SIL and her hubby invited us, out of the blue, for a weekend trip to Gyeonggi province during the holy week (they were not aware though of the lenten season cos they're buddhists:) so it was just really a random trip.


First stop was Nami Island, now known as Naminara Republic. It's 1 1/2 hours away from Seoul. And as many of you probably know already, it's the main filming location of Bae Yong Joon and Choi Ji Woo's korean drama Winter Sonata (2002). I honestly was not able to watch the drama and though I like BYJ, not as much as some of my friends do. But might as well take tons of pictures for them to drool over.hehe

Going in to ride the ferry.




Admission fee was 8000 KRW per person which included the roundtrip ferry fare to and from the island.


Here we are in Nami Seom (Island)! ~


the Central White Pine Tree Lane~ Wouldn't it be awesome if Asul gave me a piggyback ride as we walk along?kkk


We saw heart shapes like this while walking along the pine tree lane. It would have looked nicer if it were autumn, right?



We dropped by The Song Museum,too which was just near the island's entrance. They exhibited traditional musical instruments and... take a look! It's Rain!hehe (ang angas noh?!) along with those of Lee Hyori and some other korean singers.



Taken at the back of the coffee shop where we stayed for a while~



The UNICEF Charity Train, one way costs 2000KRW~



A gigantic bear in the UNICEF hall where you can see nice rag dolls as well~

mga feeler ever~ hehe




love the Metasequoia lane! really nice~



err.. just to clarify, we were taking a picture WITH the statue... they were not covering the background or something,kkk:)


We were not able to walk all around the island cos we still had to go somewhere else. But we will definitely be back here :)
