Good Saturday!!! Sense any happiness in me? To my dear Twitter friends, you all know why I'm super excited, I've been waiting for this day! My much awaited vacation to one of my "wish to visit country someday"!
I've always been dreaming of visiting this country because of the countless Korean series I've watched! I have to admit, it was the FOOD that caught my attention, when they cooked their home made instant noodles and slurp their way like it was gourmet meal! Oh, I won't forget those scenes when they're heartbroken and decided to have a drink in one of those public "tents" while keeping themselves warm while the restaurant owner would serve them (what seems like) unlimited Bulgogi! Yes, I am salivating, I am a PIG and I am proud of it!
I've tried street food in Taiwan and Thailand and I will definitely not give this a miss! I have a feeling I can skip full course meal jumping from one street food stall to another! Eeeekkk so excited! *tummy growls*
The tourist-ry side in me will definitely check out some of the well-known sites! Most of them I've seen on Korean drama series and photos! I don't have the luxury of time to visit a lot of sites but I'll definitely would not miss the famous N Tower! I am excited to leave our "lock" on N Tower's Locks of Love!
I am embarrassed to admit, but I wasn't able to watch the famous Korean Drama "Winter Sonata" which made this island famous! Nami Island! I will actually visit this place not because I will be reminiscing the scenes of the series but the picturesque trees I've seen on photos are breathtaking and I want to see them in real life! I believe Autumn is the best time to visit as the trees are quite colorful! *eeeekkk* Sensing another excitement from my side right?
Korea is also famous for their palaces! They have several palaces worth visiting and I don't think I'll be able to visit ALL of them! But I won't come back home without visiting at least one! I am very much intrigued with any country's rich history! I'll try to look into some English tours, or what a heck? I can just read about the palace online and go there and venture the palace ourselves! That'll be COOL!
Shame on me if I will give Korean Cosmetics a miss! Why will I be called a Beauty Blogger if I don't give these cute stores a visit? Thanks to Xin of Prettybeautiful for all the tips on almost everything!!! She told me I can check out Etude House, Skin Food almost after every 50meters! Eeeeekkk!!!! Now that's the 3rd eek for this day!
It's an adventure I've always been dreaming to do and thanks to Mr. AMW for being as excited as I am! The weather is just perfect by the way! Mr. AMW is one "walking perspiration" so the cool temperature ranging from 10 degrees celcius to 23 degrees celcius is another PLUS!
And before I end this post, we will be traveling on an adventure, no tour packages or tour guides! (Maybe, we can book one day tour if we wanted to maximize our time), but hey! I am getting excited because of the adventure we will be taking! Just look at the Seoul Metro Map! I love it! I am getting confused NOW! hahaha
I will be staying at the "shopping center" of the city, Myeong Dong and the hotel has free internet access, if I get the chance, I'll be updating you guys on my adventure! I know somewhere down the road, someone's going for a visit and it'll be helpful to see some tips just like what I did reading other people's Seoul Travel Blogs!
I can't help but wonder, will I find guys wearing eyeliner on the streets of Seoul????
I'll report back on all tiny details for sure!
Now...let me say my final "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!"
I hope you guys will find my Seoul Travel Experience as exciting as how I am feeling right now!
