Traveling to South Korea - Drupal Tour 2016

By Eduardo García ● CTO | March 7th, 2016

Yesterday was that awkward moment when you have to leave your hotel, but your flight is not ready to go, so you have to be prepared for random situations.

In our case, we choose to wake up late and just in time to take the hotel breakfast and return to our room to continue doing some planning for our two next destinations.

After checkout and leaving our luggage under hotel custody, we go out to do some typical tourist shopping. We bought some magnets, Vietnamese hats, bags and caps, and a football uniform from Vietnam for our son Axel.

Because we still have a lot of time, I decided to take a haircut.

We only pay USD 0.22 per glass; It’s a light beer but don’t get confused after five glasses you’ll feel I little dizzy, accompanied by a local version of Doner Kebab.

In the airport, I asked at the information desk, and the provide the information about what bus or train we could take. Finally, we bought an express rail ticket to reach Seoul, but we get lost in the subway system, mainly because we bought train card, put money and doesn’t work, so the trip was longer than expected to try to resolve the issue.

At the hotel due we arrive too early for checking, about at 11 am. Fortunately, they allow us to access the room.
