If you are a Korean drama addict, I’m sure you will remember the famous “Winter Sonata” released last 2002. I admit, I have a crush on Bae Yong-joon :D. The second drama that I watched was “Lovers in Paris.” I will recommend these two drama series to watch. I hope it will still be available online. Just search it anyway.
And before we leave for Nami Island, here is the morning photo of Lucia’s place.
Lovely, isn’t it?
Lucia’s mother’s restaurant helper cooked a fish with kimchi and it was heaven!
Saw this doggy outside the restaurant. They don’t know who owns it and so I own him for a few hours. We played and talked for a while, haha.
Lucia’s friend has a parakeet. I pity this bird.
You can go zipline from Nami terminal directly to the island.
The entrance to buy a ticket to Nami. They have this cute little immigration like to enter the island. Nami is part of South Korea. This immigration shed is only for entertainment. They don’t ask your passport to buy a ticket, but still, if you are a tourist, bring a copy of your passport (anywhere you go).

Going to Nami Island
My two beautiful travel buddies.
And a photobomber!
Nami Island entrance.
Taller than the pine trees.
Piles of rock.
And she longs for a kiss.
Tomb of General Nami.
Autumn leaves. Autumn starts in October. We visited Korea in September and we can see some of the leaves started to change its color. It was a lovely sight to behold.
Come, walk with me.
All those who wander are not lost. Where’s my home?
Nope, it’s not a plastic. It’s a real lotus flower.
What is your language?
Libro in Spanish is book.
A great performance from K-pop group.
The fifth flag from the left is from The Philippines. It was upside down, which means the country is in war. I told Lucia about it and she went to the incharge and told about it. The incharge said that they will fix it. We continue walking without waiting for the person to fix it.
And one more from 3rd from the left. I’m not sure if Filipino tourists just ignore it, they didn’t see it or nobody travels here except us.
And they have UNICEF office inside the Island. Cool!
I really wanted to have my face in caricature.
And I’ve got it for KRW10,000 (USD8.70)!
Choose your wheels.
Cycling around Nami.
And I became an instant photographer for these two young couple.
Excuse me please!
The fun of cycling with crazy friends!
Just when she thought she’s alone. Selfie girl!
Tree of life.
Gong for good luck.
When we passed by, we noticed the Philippine flag has been fixed to its normal position. Gamsahamnida Korea!
Teenagers and lovers.
The never ending chit-chat.
Flags and blue sky.
In bloom Chrysanthemum flowers.
After Nami, we head down to Korean’s favorite restaurant just outside Nami terminal.
Cold noodle. And if I mean cold, it’s really cold! See the block of ice?
Chicken and rice cake!
Kimchi fried rice. Love it!
And I never expect they have this manual pump-up well. It brings me back to my childhood.
Seeing the sky change its color makes life more beautiful!
The funny thing was, it was my first time using this “automatic” toilet. The language was in Korean and I can only rely on the picture. I pressed the green shower and it do just fine. I told to myself, haha, I know how to operate it. While doing my thing, I played the button and when I am done, I pressed the green shower again and the water splash all over my butt and I was, thankfully, quickly leap from the bowl and closed it then turn off the control. I was a bit wet but not that people can notice. The problem of first world country.
