Please forgive my absence. As some of you may have known, my dearest friend Bal had been visiting here in Korea over the last 5 weeks. All the way from Brampton to Deokso, my chingu came to see Seoul and later – Vietnam. We spent the first week galavanting around popular places in Seoul like Insadong, Hongdae, the Bukchon Traditional Village and the dead amusement park called Yongma Land.
You may be thinking that some of these places sound familiar…and that’s because I’ve written about some of them before. To read more on Insadong, click here. To check out the traditional village, click here. My solo adventure to Yongma land can be found here, but let me tell you, it was so much fun going back with Bal! Here are some photos of our hijinks at the closed-down Yongma Land.
We also checked out Changdeokgung Palace, the main palace for most of the kings who ruled during the era of Korea’s Joseon Dynasty.
This is just the tip of the tomfoolery iceberg with our 5 week reunion. I had such a wonderful time showing my friend around my second home. We ate so many delicious Korean foods and checked out a lot of cool things – some expected and some not so much. Then we were off to Vietnam for two weeks and the adventure only increased momentum from there.
All vacationing aside, I wanted to let you my Dear Readers know that I haven’t forgotten you and I’ll be writing on our travels to Vietnam in the weeks to come. Thank you for your patience my friends :) Be well and stay tuned!
