After leaving the doll shop, we continued walking up the slope towards Naksan Park. These are all the artwork that we saw along the way back to the Hyehwa subway station. I will let the photos do the talking. The
From the P-turn, we kept walking straight up until we saw this yellow wall painting on our left. It was a shame to have a lorry block our view of the sunny wall painting that day. *ARGH* We turned right
まだ春、もう冬がありました。 Early this year, we booked our trip to Seoul expecting to see spring in early April, only to find out that spring was delayed. It was still a winter landscape in Seoul: bare trees, frightfully cold winds, low temperatures.
Three cute Korean schoolgirls asked us to take a photograph of them using their iPhone, and I took the opportunity to snap one of them myself. I love the Instagram. It gives the picture such a wonderful vintage quality.

Dosan Park is a lovely spot of nature in the midst of sprawling buildings and high-end shops in that part of Gangnam. It is not a very big park, and takes probably less than 30 minutes to walk around it.
After leaving Jeju, the husband and I travelled back to Seoul where we parted ways. He took a flight back home and I travelled south to Jeonju in Jeollabuk-do by the KTX train. Many people have asked me how easy
When we were in Jeju, we stayed at the PODO Hotel Pinx, which is located in the western part of the island. In Korean, ‘podo‘ means ‘grape’. An aerial view of the hotel show the design of the roof to
The Mint Restaurant is located in the Glass House, a visually stunning glass-metal-concrete building designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. I love minimalist pristine-looking structures made of concrete, glass and metal. 🙂 The Glass House is part of Phoenix Island, a
I think I posted a photo of this restaurant some time ago. But I want to post it again, because it is such a pretty glass building. I have seen this restaurant in several Korean dramas. I was charmed by
