My flight to Hanoi has been booked! On September 9th I will start my eight-month journey abroad, living and working in Vietnam.
It is going to be a very long plane ride but I could not be more excited, and anxious, but mostly excited! Although I was desperately hoping for a layover in Tokyo, it will actually be in Seoul, South Korea and I cannot say that I am disappointed in the slightest. Seoul is home to Incheon International Airport, which has been ranked one of the best airports in the world. It is pretty clear as to why, given that the airport has a spa, skating rink, Korean culture museum, a cultural experience zone where you can make traditional Korean handicrafts, and the list goes on and on. If that wasn’t enough, the airport facilities also include a casino and golf course, which are just a free, five-minute shuttle ride away from the airport itself. I don’t think four hours in this airport will be nearly enough time!
Having my ticket officially booked has reaffirmed that this is all really happening. I am really going to be leaving in only 2 months to embark on what is sure to be one of the greatest experiences of my life!
