Camping with my Husband in Korea (he's not a fan of nature) caravan life in incheon VLOG
Good morning everyone! It is me with many many bags. And Kurt and I are going to head to Incheon to go camping for the first time. I've been camping twice maybe when I was a child. Kurt, you -have you, you've never been camping? He doesn't think so. So we are going to head to one of the 160 islands - I think there's more than 160 in Incheon and we're gonna be in a caravan so we're kind of cheating, we're not in a tent. But this is thanks to the Incheon Tourism Organization. And caravan
camping is really really popular right now and Incheon is filled with them because there's just a lot of really beautiful beaches and spaces to camp so we're going to head to one of many. We have to hit the grocery store before we get to the campground and that's it. So off we go! A nice long bus ride. We both fell asleep so so hard and now we are going to head to the mart. Sorry, it's windy again. We're gonna head to the mart, it's raining, it's gonna rain this whole trip
by the way so buckle up for a rainy camping trip. But yeah we're gonna stop and we're gonna get food for dinner and all that. We need to get water but the barbecue stuff is provided. Anyway, we're gonna get meat and veggies and fruit and then we're gonna get a taxi for the rest of the way. Let's go! Showtime. Our first purchase - 포도 (grapes) Before he notices... Quick quick quick quick quick! Hello everyone, welcome to our caravan! We're gonna give you a tour.
It is raining really hard but we kind of like that so welcome - oh my god, Kurt's exploring. So we got the Monroe room, as you can tell by the many pictures of Marilyn Monroe. I don't know why. So I will let you take the lead here. You walk in and we have a nice little double bed
with a window and it feels really spacious actually. We've got all this closet space. Our nice little kitchen area, dining area and then this kitchen is legitimately the same size as our kitchen in Seoul. So you get your pots, you have an induction, all of this storage, all of your pots and pans. Got a refrigerator, a rice maker, a microwave, - yeah 밥솥 (rice cooker) - hair dryer, towels,
kettle. And then you even have a nice little bathroom. So we're really not camping. This is not a camping situation. Mirror and then over here, Kurt has discovered his place, it's like a bunk bed situation over here. So this is normally aimed towards families so this would be... Okay bye. Okay our host brought us some [ice] because we asked for it so we were interrupted but anyway that's the whole inside. Oh we also have a tv and wi-fi of course. And then when you go out, you have this whole setup. So this huge area
with a picnic thing, your laundry, and we're going to barbecue tonight so there's our barbecue. But that is what's going on and we've got this whole huge area which we'll explore in a second. But I'm gonna put my stuff down and we might walk to the beach, I don't know. What the?! Oh. Cari!!!!! Hey, hi. So we're gonna head down to the beach
in this weather and see what we can see and then we're gonna barbecue. So wish us luck. I'm bringing just my phone because I'm scared my camera's gonna get wet. There's the ocean! Wow you can go out so far! I can honestly say as a Californian, I don't think I've ever heard rain this hard falling on sand. It sounds like a fizzy drink, it sounds like a soda.
They're all so nice look at this one I'm taking this one home - it looks like a Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans! I'm not with him. Think the rain is coming down at an angle? That's real camping. That's not what we're doing today. Oh, good luck guys! So, on nicer days, this beach is actually pretty crowded and you - oh my god And you can rent, you get like this square of space so - oh jesus But we're gonna get coffee if I can bring this kid back inside.
But first, ramen. Ramen crisis. Are you gonna eat it or not? I would eat it if you bought Bibimmyeon. That's disgusting.
You're not gonna touch it? You're not gonna even touch it? No. Look in my eyes. If it would make you happy, I'd eat a bite, that's it. Okay good then you should not eat it, that makes it easier. So I want to come back here (I'm pausing The Stones, sorry) I want to come back here because this island is also famous for its hot springs and it has a ton of them that are just like open-air hot springs that seems really nice. We're down here
but yeah, as you can see, Incheon is just a ton of islands - this is just a tiny tiny portion. But yeah we're here right now - and dinner is almost ready! Take it off after 1 minute. While that, I'm going to make ramen and rice. I didn't know you were making fancy ramen! I'm very full but we still have so much asparagus left so it's my duty to finish it all and I will! So here we go. How much do I have to deal with? Oh god that's more than I thought. Okay, okay... Even though I said I was gonna die and I haven't finished the asparagus, we're gonna take a break with some podo (grapes) We're making coffee at eight pm because we love pain! Uh-huh I see you. Want a blueberry? You gotta wake up, you gotta wake up - everybody's on the move! Ten.
What time is it? Hello! As I eat my grapes and drink my terribly brewed coffee... Just wanted to give an update. Our night was very nice, very quiet, very rainy. We just watched TV. Yeah it was just - this is lovely. This is ironically kind of the size of our apartment so we didn't feel any claustrophobia or anything. The barbecue was so good, the people working here are really nice and they like helped set up the barbecue. The only thing that we didn't eat,
I have to finish these grapes because I promised I would finish them because we bought the bigger pack when Kurt said we should buy the smaller one, soIi'm finishing these. Also just a tangent about these grapes - growing up in America, we had like red grapes or green grapes and I never understood why grape flavor tasted the way that grape flavor does, like if you're getting a lollipop or a popsicle or something like that - these grapes taste like grape flavor. I understand now. It took me 20 something years but now I know. That's the grape story but yeah once again this area, like all of Incheon but especially it seems like Ganghwado and the really close islands to Ganghwa have so many of these caravans and so if you want a camping experience but you don't have a tent or you don't have just a lot of camping gear - this is kind of a way to ease your way in. Had it been better weather, we probably would have like done more stuff on the beach and then there's a lot of hiking, there's a temple and stuff nearby. Like I said, there are those hot springs
that we're definitely going to go to in autumn, I will bring you, I promise. But yeah there's just so much to do and it's relatively easily accessible if you're coming from Seoul - we had to take two buses and then we took a taxi as you saw so it's not quite as easy as my previous Incheon video where I showed you you could just take the literally the subway there in like an hour. This one's a little bit more difficult but also you're camping in the countryside so I think that makes sense. And yeah I just highly recommend it. This was so nice there are literally so many, like just on this street, it's all different caravan places so definitely look into it. You have to book ahead because this is really popular but yeah I had a lot of fun, I have only had great - I've only been to Ganghwado twice but I've had great experiences. I'll actually link it above because I came in summer as well I think I came in the beginning of summer, this is like mid-summer. But i'll link it because Ganghwa has an insanely
beautiful cafe scene going on and then I also went to a temple and there was this woman selling these cherries that she picked off of a bush - I don't know, it was a magical day and I will link that above if you aren't quite yet convinced about Ganghwa but anyway I'm going to finish this, we're gonna see -probably hit a cafe or something before we head back so I'll see you once again but cheers from the Monroe caravan at Hello Caravan on Seokmodo next to Ganghwa in Incheon - bye! You are so bad at this - give it to them with your fingers! No I don't want them to lick me. Hand! Wow, he speaks English well too! And we are home from Seokmodo - why is that so difficult for me to say? It is a small island off of Ganghwado which is an island that is part of Incheon. And so once again thank you to the Incheon Tourism Organization for sponsoring this. I had such a
good time and I'm so glad that Kurt had a good time too because he's very nervous about nature but that was just the perfect mix of like - he basically was in a hotel room but we were also really close to nature. It was just a really great time so definitely check it out inchon um there like visit incheon website which i will link down below actually has a few care vans that they recommend that are listed and then there's literally a ton like that entire island was just for camping um so definitely check it out for this summer for this autumn it would be superb um so yeah and they have different levels if you want to do glamping if you want to do a caravan if you want to do like just being in a tent you can do it all so um yeah inchon love you so much i will see you again soon so i'm gonna leave you here i hope that you enjoyed our little camping adventure and i will see you guys very soon once again so yeah thank you for joining me see you next time bye
