We didn’t put the preparation time into this trip like we did the first time around. We never did find our tour books on Korea – probably in some box somewhere. Part of not planning as much lies in the fact that we are relying on our memory of the first trip. Thankfully that has served us well so far.
Last night at the airport we breezed through customs, baggage claim, currency exchange, and buying a bus ticket and hopping on the bus. Upon arriving at our destination point, we did not wander looking for the SWS Guest House, last time ending up at the police station asking for assistance. This time we got off the bus, stopped at a convenience store that we remembered (right beside the Starbucks) and straight to the guest house.
Washcloths anyone? I almost packed a couple. When we arrived last time it was during the Lunar New Year so the housekeeping staff wasn’t around. We had to ask the night guard for towels. He got us a nice stack and … no washcloths. I wrote if off to no housekeeping. But this time around, still no washcloths. Should have listened to my gut.
Last night as we neared our bus stop it was fun looking around to see what we remembered. I’m anxious to the same on foot this morning. The sun is shining bright, and my stomach is ready to seek out a breakfast spot. As you enjoy your dinner and wind down for the night, our day begins. And we await the 1:30 appointment with our baby girl!
