South Korea-From the Lazy Fox to the Jeju

Yesterday, I checked out of the Lazy Fox Den Hostel in Seoul. The Lazy Fox Den is a fun hostel where everyone is a lot younger than I am. The check-in is open from 8:30 until 11:00, and then everyone goes out. It was a fun place to stay, and they encouraged me to come back next time I am in Seoul.

I went to Gimpo airport, a small airport, and caught the flight to Jeju island, which is supposed to be a "Korean Hawaii", with beautiful spots, volcanoes, etc. Ordinarily I prefer big cities, but I could use a break, (I figured out I have traveled on 9 different Metro systems since I started travelling less then 3 months ago). After the one hour flight-Gimpo felt nice, it was warmer as Seoul was cold.

i went to the hostel, which was close to the bus station, and learned laundry was free but the dryer cost money, about $2.00. Since I have been washing my clothes in the shower and drying them outside on a clothes line, it was nice to have regular laundry. The washing machine is on the roof, on the 4th floor. So I washed my clothes and put the clothes in the machine next door, which I assumed was the dryer. When I returned half an hour later, I learned it wasn't a dryer-but another washing machine. So my clothes we're washed twice. I then learned the dryer was in the basement. So I had to take the clothes down 4 flights of stairs from the roof the the basement. I also learned that unlike in Seoul, the staff doesn't speak that much English here.

But after roughly 2 hours of washing my clothes twice, I did have freshly cleaned and washed clothes.
