My 1st Solo Trip and 2nd Trip to Korea :)

Initially a bit afraid but I definitely enjoyed the trip! Contrary to what I had thought, I did not feel lonely but looked forward to fulfilling every bit of the itinerary. Although I admit I was super tired because I woke up at 6am (KST) and slept after 11pm (KST) every day and was unable to complete 100% of the itinerary (is this a hint for a 3rd trip?), I do not regret going for this trip. Thank God for the safety and good friends who prayed for my safety.

Trip Duration 6 Days 5 Nights, 10 May 2018 – 15 May 2018

Weather: All days had great weather except for Day 3 (12May18) where it rained the whole day and night.

I will provide the brief itinerary on this blog post and will provide more details in future posts.
