Seoul Searching

(안녕하세요) Annyeonghaseyo! (반짝 반짝) Banjjag Banjjag!!

Yep, just been to Korea. I didn’t expect going there this soon even though it’s in my bucket list. I was invited by my friend/housemate Kim to take a trip there. She’s a Kpop Fanatic so it’s her dream come true to go there. Thing is, she remembered me making a promise that I’d go with her if ever the opportunity comes. So I had no choice but to fulfill my promise even if I only came from the States 4mos prior(READ: out of budget).

This is where we’re checked in.

Besides thinking of how short my financial status will be after the trip, I just thought of the personal experience I’m gonna gain throughout the tour. It was a 4-night, 3-day tour around Seoul, the famous Gyeongbokgung Palace, Myeongdong Shopping District, Nami Island and Everland Resort. We even had a university tour (HanYang University) because it was enlisted as an educational tour with members of the Centro Escolar University Faculty.

We even had side trips to Gangnam and the SM Entertainment Building where the Kpop Stars go.

Overall, it was a superb experience alright. I’d comeback coz I know there’s waaaaay more to explore in Korea. I haven’t been to Seoul Tower or Namsan Tower and Jeju Island!
