We have landed at Seoul, South Korea, ICN/INCHEON AIRPORT. This place is also big like the airport we just left in Bangkok although I think the Bangkok one was bigger. By the time we get up to the area where we will wait for our next flight it is too late to try to take one of the free transit tours. ICN offers free transit tours if you have long layovers. I wish all airports did this. I think it's great PR for the city. I picked up a booklet from the transit tour desk and there are so many really neat tours ranging from 1 hr. to 5 hrs. I wish we had a longer layover!! We walk around looking at the stores, people. There's a STARBUCKS and I'm hungry and thirsty so I buy a sweet cinnamon roll for 3500 Korean money. I give the lady $5 and since they don't give the change back in US I get 1680 Korean back. Then we go to CAFFE BENE because they have free wifi and I can sit here and check things on my I Pad. 2 coffees set us back $11 Us money accepted but no change as I have the correct amount in USD. My brother-in-law was supposed to pick us up at the airport in Buffalo but he was hospitalized and is recovering at home. My nephew got in touch with my step daughter who is now going to pick us up I hope. Yes-there's an e-mail from her and she will pick us up tonight when our plane arrives at 8:40 pm. Time to board our next ASIANA flight OZ 236 departing ICN at 11:00 am and arriving in ORD/Chicago at 9:35 am. We have a very long layover of almost 8 hrs. in Chicago. Too bad there's no transit tours!! GOODBYE, SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA!
