Confession: As I started making my way back to the hotel, I couldn't leave just yet! I was literally a few meters away from the hotel when I turned around and went back to the beach where I stayed for about 30 more minutes. I just had to take it all in before I went home - back to screaming children and noisy vans with loud speakers.
Well, I couldn't get an earlier flight, so I passed time at a coffee shop with my netbook. I was feeling very tired. What is it about the beach that makes one feel so drained after leaving? It's not like I even went for a swim or anything.
Anyways, I arrived at Gimpo Airport safe and sound. A cab driver approached me asking where I was going. When I told him, he walked me to his car. It was a black taxi and I remember my friend telling me that black taxi's are very expensive. He told me it would cost 35,000 Won to get home. I looked at him as if he was crazy. He said the other taxi's lined up were all going to Seoul so they wouldn't take me. Ha!
Well, guess what? He obliged! An hour later, I was back in my apartment. I no longer had the view of the stunning blue ocean before me. Instead, I was looking onto rooftops of apartment buildings.
I was already missing Jeju, but as they say - back to reality!
