In case anyone’s wondering where I am, I’m currently in Seoul, South Korea for a short holiday before heading back to London next week.
The journey here on Friday afternoon from Beijing, unfortunately, turned into a big nightmare – the plane was delayed two hours (whilst sitting in it on the tarmac), upon landing discovered my phone doesn’t work in Korea (their telecoms networks are way ahead of ours!), I got off at the wrong bus stop so missed my friend (who had already been waiting for hours) and then to top it off I lost my credit card in a moment of being completely stressed out with the situation.
Did I mention I only speak one word of Korean? It was not a fun evening but eventually managed to get to the hotel, meet my friend and cancel my lost card but I’m hoping that’s the last of my troubles for this journey! To be continued… 🙂
Update (2/5): After another tortuous journey lasting around 24 hours I’m back in the UK. I’ll give a fuller update once the jet lag has worn off, sufficed to say Korea was great!
