I was worried I might get stuck with my 7 night cert, but found a week around Christmas. Rate is for 2 people it seems, so for our 2 sons it will be an extra 5,000 per person per night, so •70,000....

Woke up at 1:50am to get in on the Getaways. I scored a few packages at various levels. I am hoping the trouble with availability in Japan is just a glitch.

Unseo was a good idea. We stayed in a nice Howard Johnson for about $50. It took about 45 minutes to get there from GMP baggage claim. Shuttle next morning made it an easy trip to ICN.

Better to overnight near GMP or ICN?

We arrive into GMP at 21:45 and depart the next day from ICN at 13:25.

I have...
