On Saturday, Matt and I traveled to Nami Island with Rosa and Jaemo. Nami Island was named after General Nami, whose tomb is there. The island is famous because a Korean drama, “Winter Sonata,” was filmed there, and so it gets many tourists from Japan and China coming to see sites from the show.
The island is about 30 minutes from Chuncheon by car. Then you take a five-minute boat ride to get there. Matt and Jaemo wanted to zip line to the island, but we didn’t make reservations in advance, and it was all booked.
It was the first day with no rain in weeks, so it was perfect to stroll around the island and enjoy the scenery. The island pledges to have responsibility for recycling, and there were many cool displays of recycled things around the island.
We also saw wildlife like squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and ostriches. Yes, ostriches. I’ll let the photos do the talking here.
