Nami Island Trip

Our adventure continues with some video and pics from our excursion to Nami Island.

First the train.

The first, and obvious, is the cartoonish character. The whole culture over here seems child-like in advertising. Soft and/or bright colours and a lot of cartoonish characters. It’s kinda like re-living 50’s advertising in such a modern setting.

The next thing you’ll notice are the two vertical black marks on the door. I couldn’t get a picture of the front of the train but it seems that either there are a lot of paint layers and they are cracking, and by layers I mean the type of layers you’d find when looking at a 50+ year-old house that has 20 layers of paint on it and peeling. The front of the train looked worse. The train itself was very comfortable and quiet. So it’s not like the trains are falling apart, far from it. The seats even reclined and you had curtains and coat hooks with tons of leg room. So traveling anywhere of significant distance is pleasant. They even have a lady with a food cart that goes around selling snacks and drinks. Really smart people here.

Taking a break from walking around Nami Island.

On the train home.

On the train ride home, saw a cool shot of a sunset.

And finally, at the subway station grabbed this shot with the moon.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
