Hello from Korea!

It took us a very long time (7 hr flight to Dubai, 3 hr stop-over, 8 hr flight to Korea) and we were all tired by the time we got here. Fortunately, we were met by two lovely Korean lads with a sign (as you can see) - they even pushed our luggage trolley for us. It was hot and humid, so we waited inside until the bus arrived to take us to the hotel.

There were some hassles with check-in - we'd been put into twin rooms so Lea was sharing with a spanish woman we'd not met. Unfortunately, we'd been put into smoking rooms, so they STANK!! peeeewwwwwww!! We asked to change rooms - Becs and I were moved straight away, but because Lea was sharing with someone, they said she needed to ask her "room-mate". No one had her number, we'd not met her and it was all becoming a bit much for us to deal with - especially after no sleep for 24hrs, so I asked if we could get a triple room. After much to-ing and fro-ing between the hotel and the organisers, they put an extra bed in with Becs and I and we're all sharing. Gareth is still sharing with a spanish man who doesn't speak english, but he said it's all fine. :-)

I've got more to tell about the Korea Science Festival, but I'll leave that until next time - hopefully I'll be able to get online again while I'm here. I'll just say that I'm keeping busy - not much time for sight-seeing yet, but we're going on a tour tonight. :-)

Hope everyone is well.


  1. That's soooo cool. I've been looking at your Google calendar, fair to say you're busy! :D

    I really want to hear about the tour -- our overnight stopover in Seoul didn't give us any time to see anything (well, there WAS time, we were just too tired) but the view from the bus, then the hotel, then the bus again.

  2. Thank you Dayna for your post. I've been wondering how you got on. I thought today you were back on our times so I should have rung you. but by now you are probably heading home. How long is the Science conference?

  3. we've got two more days here in Korea, so I'm not home in Manchester until Saturday (we leave late Friday night, but with flying and timings we arrive Saturday). I'll update soon.. but my 1hr internet is about up for now.
