On November 12th 2010, I was sitting in my apartment kitchen here in San Francisco. All of the sudden, I wanted to go to Korea, where I grew up until I was 9 years old. Like they say in San Francisco that you left your heart in San Francisco, I must have left my heart in Korea.
Anyways, like 3AM in the morning on the 12th, I bought a ticket on Expedia from SFO to Incheon (Seoul), Korea that left around 12PM. I didn’t get much sleep and barely made it to the airport.
Somehow, I was able to get in touch with my mom who lives in Korea, and she came to the airport to pick me up.
Upon arrival, I guess I missed Korea very much, it’s a wonderful feeling when you can be somewhere where they speak your own language, drive Korean cars, and practically everything is Korean.
So, this is me in my mom’s car, us leaving the Incheon airport. You see, the international airport for Seoul, Korea used to be in Seoul but they built a new airport about 15 years ago in Incheon, so you have to drive about an hour before you can get to Seoul.
Yes, they have something like FastTrak in Korea!
Oh, that sign “Seoul” makes me happy. Oh yeah.
I will have some more photos and videos of Incheon Airport later but for now, let’s be happy with my feelings arriving in Korea.
Seoul, I missed you, it’s been nearly 5 years!!!
