Gangneung Trip ( part 1 )
This is a story about our summer trip to Gangneung. It's all about fun. Okay..not all was fun, though. But, let me start how we ended up deciding going on a trip to Gangneung.
First, it was during the long weekend of Korea's Independence Day Holiday on August 15.
So...long weekend meant that not many pensions (펜션) were available. Even if they were...the prices were soaring. ^^ INDEED.
Finally, I managed to book a pension ( a good one ) with relatively higher price compared to normal days.
It's a family-type that could accommodate up to 6 people.
The Santa Beach Pension was the one we booked. And after paying an amount of 260,000 Won only for one night!!!
Then...as soon as we got the place to stay, we rushed to the terminal to reserve the bus ticket that would take us straight to Gangneung. We went to Dong Seoul Terminal (동서울터미널) @ Gangbyeon station, Subway line 2 to reserve the ticket to Gangneung.
After that, we went straight to the train station (청량리역-Cheongnyangni Station)
to reserve the ticket home. ^^
Yes..it's a great ride from Seoul-Gangneung-Seoul.
But..it didn't turn out to be quite what we planned it to be.
