It would have been nice to also hit the road again, but flying out of the country was out of the question. I just got back from my Christmas vacation in the Philippines, and plane tickets are very pricey. It's a peak season!
And hitting the road would also been good if only you don't know that 30 million other people are moving around the country during this long weekend. I certain don't want to be caught in a day-long traffic jam!
(I always like the lines of the Seoul Station, from the beams, to the roof and down to the train tracks. It's a beautiful train station.)
And as I wandered around the less crowded city, I made a quick stop at the Seoul Station, the major hub of Korail's KTX trains which carry thousands and thousands of homeward passengers days before Seollal.
And while I happened to watch a few of those thousands who were eagerly awaiting their trains or on their way to the platform to board them, I shared, in a way, their excitement of being homeward bound.
Happy Seollal, everyone!
