Upon touch down at Incheon International Airport, I felt a palpable sense of excitement. Finally, my dream trip to Korea was about to begin. It was the culmination of many weeks of intensive planning, accompanied with not a small amount of anxiety about embarking on my first solo journey to a non-English speaking country.
The first order of business was to get myself to Gimpo Airport, collect the 3G sim-card that I had pre-ordered and board the domestic flight to Jeju. Having taken a red-eye from Singapore, I was pretty sleepy, so the adrenalin rush from finally setting foot in Korea really helped propel me forward.
