One of my must sees in Korea has been the artsy tourist spot, Nami Island. The man-made island is known for its quirky sculptures and activities and beautiful scenery. We were impressed with how such an incredibly crowded tourist spot could still come across as idyllic. From the start you are herded through the immigration station (leave your passport at home, folks, it's just the cutesy name for the ticket office) and packed onto a ferry that takes you to the island.
That is unless you are one of the adventure seeking types who pays the $35+ to zipline to the island.
Either way you will be greeted by stunning tree lined roads (being admired by a thousand other onlookers, of course).
Do the crowds of families enjoying a Saturday afternoon at Nami Island. Remind you of anything?
Jonathan and I were struck by this view and immediately reminded of the painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Seurat. We weren't able to really compare the painting to the scene until we returned home and couldn't believe how similar it was, specifically the man lounging with one knee up on the bottom left. Told you it was an artsy island.
Anyway, thus begins my photo dump. Enjoy!
As you can tell, it was a good day.
