All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go~
this is it! Wednesday, 23rd of February 2011, it’s D-Day… the Day when I’ll start my long journey, the day when all efforts and sacrifices will soon pay off… i’m soooo ready to face it…
Garuda Indonesia GA 878, take off at 11.40 pm !
we had some problems about check-in and luggage things but thanks God, finally can be solved ! because actually we only got 30kgs for luggage each person but because we’re 15, and have so many different habit, so different things needed.. and become overweight! but thanks to the man whom make it easier for us..
on board, the other can sit next to other unpad delegates, while I have to sit with a man.. Korean man to be exact.. and I am very lucky because he wanted to be my songsaengnim! great.. because he saw me reading my handbook of Korean Language.. then he taught me all about Hangul ! confuse? yes for sure, but I try to understand it faster…
and I am sooo lucky because, unfortunately, he is quite an important person..I got all his contact number and email… ok, i built my first networking on the plane..
Then finally we touch down Incheon International Airport, the temperature was 4 degrees at that time.. got AGA member (Jo and Andre) pick us up and show us the way to Ajou… very organized.. there are AGA member in each place when we stop down and change to another transportation.. ok, let me explain the fare :
12.000 won for the Bus (alight on the last stop, Hotel Castle)
3.400 won for Taxi to Ajou Dormitory
when we arrived at Hwahong Hall, unfortunately it was lunch time, so we have to wait.. Uri Gracia take us to canteen to have some meals.. I eat my first bibimbap with kimchi here..
oh, and we met our senior from Indonesia, Bang Mata and Bang Aji! they are very nice! at night, we spent time with Bang Mata walking around Suwon. To the market and Daiso! buy some stuffs needed!
It was awesome day 1 in Suwon, South Korea!
Will explore more and bring more story here! :))
