Yay! Finally back in Seoul again!

Back in Seoul 2011

안녕하세요 and welcome to my blog about my adventures in Seoul, South Korea. It has been a long time since my last visit in 2010 and i am just happy to be back in Seoul again. I am looking forward to great 3 months and i am pretty sure they will be exciting and fun! Unlike my first time i will attend this time the Language Course of the Yonsei University for 10 weeks so i hope i will be soon able to do more than just ordering a beer and some food. Let’s see if they can teach an old dog some new tricks 😉

Arrival at Incheon Airport 2011

The journey itself was pretty easy going, no troubles at all. I was starting in Vienna, transfering in Helsinki and after nearly 15 hours i arrived at the Incheon Airport in South Korea. Truly a very convenient route because i remember traveling over 24 hours in the past when i was heading to China over Qatar in the Middle East.

The only tough thing is that you are losing one night because you are starting in Helsinki around 6pm and flying nearly 8 hours, what means that you are arriving in Seoul around 2 o’clock in the morning with your old time but in Seoul it is actually 9am in the morning. So, if you take it in a positive way it is a great chance to beat the jet lag immediately but only if you make it through the day 😀

Expensive snack at the Helsinki AirportOne thing about the Helsinki Airport: gosh, are they expensive! I was really hungry because i didn’t eat the whole day before and no breakfast in the morning either (i have a pretty weak stomache) so the small Sandwich on the flight to Helsinki didn’t please me at all. So i was deeply in the mood for a warm tomato soup and i was checking everywhere to get one. But after seeing those prices i lost my appetite! 12,50 Euro for a tomato soup? 14,50 Euro for some noodles? Are you freaking kidding me? From today i have my own name for Helsinki: “Hel-l-are-they-expsensive-sinki” 😛 At least the internet was for free, so i could spent some time doing facebook, chatting on skype and checking my emails. Though the prices are insane the airport still is really, really nice!

The first two weeks past already and i was really busy taking care of various things. Now i am just looking forward to my Language classes, which will start in a few days! Yay! Also i promise to keep my blog up-to-date and share as many of my experiences and pictures from Seoul as possible! And if you are currently hanging out or living in Seoul too and you are interested in drinking a beer with me, sharing some stories and experiences, just let me know! I am always looking forward to meet new people and expats in Seoul.
