I still can't believe that we (me and my 2 friends) went on a trip to Seoul, Korea .. (a spontaneous decision over breakfast one morning). We were casually talking about going on holiday after our workout in the gym and within a fortnight we were off on the plane to Seoul.
We arranged for the trip and toured the country where we do not speak their language by ourselves.
In the 5 days 4 night trip, we shopped, savored Korean food and culture without a tour guide (except for a half day tour to visit the Changdeok Palace which we followed a local tour).
We went to the local markets and shopping areas like Dongdaemun, Namdaemun, Insadong, Myeongdon and shopped till we drop!
In fact… we did all that on foot…. yes … we practically walked to all these places from our hotel. Did not use the public transport as we enjoyed strolling along the way. Of course coming back from the shopping area was more challenging as we were lugging our finds!!!
Anyway, here is seeing Korea from our eyes….
We ate where a local would have their meals....Food stalls in the market place (open till 2 am)

A good getaway from our daily routine as homemakers.
