Back in April of 2019, I traveled to my 72nd country, South Korea! But first, I want to share with you my journey getting there. My 14-day trip began early at Miami International Airport. I couldn’t wait to get to Seoul!
The first 4 days of my trip would be with a group of 12 YouTubers including my boy Sam from Samuel & Audrey. Then Sam and I would split off from them and spend the last 10 days of our trip exploring Seoul, Busan, and going on day trips around the country. I love Korean food and I couldn’t wait to try some in the country it comes from!
I started with a 3-hour flight from Miami to Dallas. From there, I would have a 90-minute connection and a 15-hour flight on an American Airlines 787 Dreamliner to Seoul. I’d be flying Economy Class!
After two and a half hours, I was in Dallas! I had an hour to chill, so I headed to the Ambrose Club to grab something to eat before my connecting flight. I grabbed a salmon and avocado toast with tabasco and coffee. The toast had a nice crunch to it! I was glad to eat something good because American Airlines food can be hit or miss.
Then it was time to board! I had a window seat, but the first two hours were full of turbulence. They served a meal of Korean beef and vegetables, which was really great. Six hours in, we were flying over Alaska. There were blackout windows that are super futuristic. Outside of the turbulence at the beginning, it was a really smooth flight the rest of the way.
After over 14 hours, we landed in Incheon! I only slept 3 hours on the flight, so I was pretty destroyed, but I was excited to start my adventure! I grabbed my bags, filled out a Customs Declaration Form, and found the person holding a sign with my name on it. There was a guy filming me with a really sick gimbal!
From there, the woman with the sign booked me an Uber. It would take me about an hour to get from Incheon to Seoul. It was raining out, but I could see lots of greenery outside.
I couldn’t wait to get to my hotel. There were lots of skyscrapers in Seoul, but also lots of vegetation. I had no idea Seoul was so green!
I arrived at my hotel, the Shilla Stay, checked in, and headed up to my room on the 15th floor. The room was modern, sleek, and small, with a desk, couch, queen-sized bed, and nice bathroom. It had everything I needed!
I was so freaking excited to start my amazing South Korean adventure!
I hope you enjoyed coming along on my journey from Miami to Seoul! If you did, please give it a thumbs up and leave me a comment below. Also, please subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss any of my upcoming travel/food adventures!
