Nami Island, Seoul

Day 2 at Seoul, we visited Nami Island. It was after a good rest in the hotel, we took the most amount of pictures at Nami Island.
We needed to take a 20 minutes ferry ride to this beautiful island.  The girls were performing some monkey stunts at the steel bar in the ferry.
This island is named after General Nami and his grave is there. General Nami passed the military service examination at the age of only 17 and was promoted to Minister of National Defense at the age of 27. He was then denounced as a traitor after the king's enthronement, and died young at the age of 28.
People who go there now, don't really care about the history of this island. Instead, this place was actually made well-known by the trails of Winter Sonata. The trails include the positions they stood in the drama, the location of their first kiss, the lover bicycles and lots more.
Korean drama fans sure go berserk whenever they see all these trails. Too bad, I am not a fan of Bae Yong Joon, but my elder sister is a die hard fan of him. So, I took all these picture to make her go crazy.
Then, my girls too started to post like the Bollywood actresses, hugging trees and running around the bushes.
Taking pictures with the pine trees and maple trees. Nami Island is quite big, you can either walk or rent a bicycle to go around this romantic place.
Most main walk ways looks like this. There were a lot of people on that day, it was really hard to not get a picture without a human anywhere in the picture.
