Travel Catalog: Day 4-6 in Seoul

Another picture diary time.

I’m so ashamed of myself that I didn’t visit a single cafe (those franchised ones don’t count…..) / traditional Korean tea house when I was in Seoul, which was very unlike myself since I’ve always been a coffee person. I had even pictured myself in the little, cozy cafes and tea houses before I left for the trip. I blamed myself for being sick as I’ve missed out so much in Seoul! There are yet so much more to explore in this city

Day 4.

The convenient stores in Seoul are very similar to the ones in Tokyo. I like how they have a huge selection of yogurt drinks and coffee.

My grumpy face after we failed to find the barbeque place that we were planning to go.

Korean beef tasted sooooo gooooood.

Day 5:
The best soy sauce braised chicken I’ve ever had. Even the famous Korean boys group Bigbang is a regular customer.

Rice with seaweed and tofu.

A vintage store which has a massive collection of all kinds of vintage jewelries, bags and clothes from Europe.

The owner of Jamie & Bell. He kept tempting me to buy this black Chanel backpack and offered me the price of only 250 CAD. I’m still regretting that I didn’t buy it since it was such a good deal. If only I had a job this summer……

Day 6: Korean feast for lunch

At the royal palace. The guards’ hanboks look gorgeous.

Marching ceremony

Me looking like a cat ………. I think I get that from my Siamese kitty Freddie

Japanese girls in Korean hanboks!

At N Seoul Tower

Coldstone in Seoul! I’ve also tried the one in Tokyo before and I swear Asia makes the best Coldstone ice cream. The one back in Montreal is very disappointing and I really think it’s because it’s a store collaborated into Tim Hortons (where everyone gets really cheap coffee & pastries). Oh by the way, have I mentioned that I’m the messiest ice cream eater ever?

The locks tree, where couples write down messages onto locks and hang it onto the tree – so they can tie their knots with each other forever.

Day 7: last minute shopping. I didn’t take any photos since I was rushing to different places for the whole morning and afternoon.

There was a boat in the sea I knew
Couldn’t believe what I saw was true
I swam out through the waves
Caught it as it moved away

Said I stole you
Said I stole you away
