Nami Island, Petit France & N Seoul Tower

7:55 PM

The day started out early, the morning chill was in the air and we all hopped on on a van and headed out to Nami Island. The night before our trip to this quaint little island, I checked the weather in the internet and was pleasantly surprised that it wouldn't be too chilly (16 degrees). Chuffed that it wasn't too cold, I wore my Topshop coat that to be honest didn't keep me warm much and forgo my beanie for a beret. An hour and a half later, we arrived in the quaint little island and was absolutely gobsmacked by how cold it was (4 bloody degree!). 

Coldness aside, we had a lovely two hours in the island! There were lots of tourists around so it was a bit of a pain to take photographs, but all is well. It was lovely to breathe in the fresh air of the island and take a lovely walk with nature surrounding you. I also came across a peacock in the island, which was pretty dang cool! It was so beautiful too. Fun fact: the island is famous for its setting of the 2002 K-drama 'Winter Sonata'. I've never heard of it prior to this trip, so I was just standing on to the side whilst my aunts fangirl over the statue of the two main characters. 

After a quick lunch by the Island, we headed out to Petit France which is located in Gapyeong. I was feeling a little flustered when we arrived at the scene as I a) fell asleep in the car and b) I was freezing cold! Just like the island, the place is also a place that was shot for a few K-dramas that I've never heard of before, so once again, I was the only one admiring the beautifully colored buildings and I've gotta admit, I felt as if I was in Italy instead of France! Reminds me a lot of Amalfi Coast.

There's not a lot of things to see in Petit France so we only stayed there for approximately an hour, spent most of that time chilling and drinking a steaming hot chocolate to warm myself a little bit.


As I stroll through Myeongdong, and even Bukchon Hanok Village, the view of the Seoul Tower was in my sight. I've always loved towers; there's just something so special about them! Not a massive fan of heights, alas, the elevator ride up is always worth it. It was a pretty dreary day in Seoul, so there was a lot of haze and smog looming over the city, but eh, you can't always get what you want am I right?! It was freezing cold as the sun started its descend, so I was basically a freezing lil' snowman by the time we left the tower.

All in all, a very great roadtrip across the countryside of Korea. I've always loved exploring the villages of countries as they're so exhilarating to explore, very different from a city life. One thing I've learned from this trip was; never trust the weather forecast. They're a bunch of liars! *lol*

Much love, Ashley xx
