Summer Vacation

It's already our second day back at school and our vacation seems like it was months ago already. I had a really great time though filled with sunshine, friends and music.

I loved being in Seoul and getting away from Busan for a few days. I loved the feeling of some of the areas of Seoul, especially Edae and Hongdae. I can't wait to go back when it's a little cooler and we have more time to explore the nightlife.

We fitted alot in, Gyeongbukgong Palace, we saw the fountain on Banpo bridge, did some shopping at Forever 21 and H&M, visited the Hello Kitty Cafe, Seoul Tower where I loved the promise locks that friends and couples leave on the railings up there, Namdaemun market and ate some good Mexican and Italian food. It will be even better if Clare moves there, giving me the excuse to visit even more.

I always thought that Busan was relatively big but never expected Seoul to be quite as big as it was. 2 days was not enough to explore, rather have a whistle stop run around all of the well known places before I headed to Jisan Festival.





Just so I don't leave everyone to interpret the pics on their own, let me add captions...
