Childhood memories in Korea

Childhood memories in Korea

So here’s a bit of my story. I was born in Seoul, Korea and lived there (well, “here” now that I’m back) until I was 8 years old. Until then, I thought I was going to live like any other normal Korean kids. Never in my short 8 years of life, did I think that I’ll be moving away from my “home” and live in different countries… for 15 years!

Songdo, located near Incheon, is approximately 2 hours away from Seoul by subway, so I thought it would make the perfect destination for a quick day trip. To get there from Seoul, you’ll have to take Line 7 all the way to the last station (Bupyeong-gu Office) and transfer to the Incheon 1 Line. (see English subway map here) Read More
