How do you spend your waiting time while traveling? Thanks to Wi-Fi being available at airports and on airplanes, we are able to pass the time on our phones or devices. Of course we can enjoy a good movie, TV show, or even games. However, there’s also the more classic and age-old pastime of reading. 📕
Reading that book you had collecting dust in an unfamiliar travel destination can present a completely different experience. For people who love traveling, books, and stories, there was a special talk concert this past June at Incheon Airport. 👏👏🏻
For those who missed it, here’s a look at the talk concert about travel and books ✨featuring writer Kim Young-ha and hosted by singer Yozo.
