Hello again ~
I really wanted to share two awesome experiences and places in Seoul that U NEED TO take a look at !
BEFORE I get to this incredibly cute little pug on the top half of this collage I want to tell u about my first ever safari experience which I was able to get at the
Everland Theme Park
But super cold weather ( the sun couldn’t possibly warm me up against the freezing wind ) + fast rides on rollercoasters or other attractions just don’t do anyone any good .
I guess they all wanted to enjoy the really really cooool safari tours there ?
but they didn’t move much so I was totally fine throughout the tour :)
It’s cool for someone like me who won’t ever get to countries where these animals are at home .
But I did keep in mind that they are held there against their will .
it’s not like they hold the animals there and harm them .
People should raise more awareness against the killing of these animals and THAT doesn’t happen in zoos etc .
Instead they are fed all the time and get a lot of love from the staff .
And a lot of small children get to see such great animals in real life and get super excited and happy .
I think things like these also matter :)
Super good KIMCHI !
IT’S THE BEST PART coz it’s super crispy I LOVE IT ~
Myeongdong Dog Café
Hello everyone ~
Haha . . .
I don’t like being in too crowded places for too long so I preferred it this way :D
Bukchon Hanok village | Korean traditional village
It’s like you are back in time in an old Seoul ~
I love the atmosphere that these old houses create !
Sooo different from the rest of Seoul yet it is just minutes away from the modern parts haha ~
Rare of me to let myself get photographed by someone else especially all alone in a picture . . .
so this photo which came out quite OK is worth showing haha ~
Ihwa Mural village
Several artists have made installations + wall paintings + other art creations all across this village .
The streets here give off an entire different atmosphere than in Bukchon Village .
A lot more . . . chaotic somehow but not rundown at all !
Unlike the other village I think photos taken in Ihwa Village would be even more charming with more people on them :P
Not that far from there we went to the Seoul Tower and Seoul’s highest point of view .
I got to catch this photo hehe ~
At first I only wanted to take a nice photo of the moon which shone soooo bright upon the whole city .
Then I noticed the green highlighted Seoul Tower next to it and wanted to take a photo of both together .
THEN I noticed the beautiful pavillon underneath the tower .
That’s exactly how this photo was made haha ~
I totally recommend any Seoul visitor to take a look at these two villages !
It’s a MUST-SEE really !
Both Geon and me were so exhausted from the LONG walk but super happy when we reached the top haha ~
He denied being exhausted for a long time and I bet everyone could see he was .
That’s how I always call him .
Stupid Geon tsss .
In the end I said that it’s damn human to be exhausted .
I was also super exhausted and thirsty . . . but I saw him being like that and so I told him to take a rest .
OF COURSE I ALSO WANTED TO REST HAHA ~Sometimes it’s better to speak out ones mind even if it’s plain stuff like these haha ~
Love you anyway. . . my stupid Geon <3
But it was worth it and I reaaaaally really LOVED the streets we passed to get to the entrance of the Fragrant Hills Park !
Full of yummy food and stuff – make sure to grab water there ( not expensive actually ! ) before you head to the park !
Christmas is coming next week ( so soon ? ! ) and I have yet to prepare everything until I leave for Hong Kong next next Monday . . .
I will celebrate New Years with my dad and others in Hong Kong for the first time ~Sorry for taking so long to finish this blogpost . . . even though it’s already weeks ago . . . but this one might be interesting for those who are interested in China’s history :D ?
So here some facts for you :
Some are in really reaaaally good shape . . . of course most of them needed to be fixed by professionals / archeologists but I guess thanks to this tomb people were able to get to know a lot more about China and the first emperor .
Now think of man-size and no tech and 8000 of them .
Cute couple haha ~
That was the reason I was so stupid to study old latin language instead of french or italian . . .
They get their trademark appearance by being flattened and baked in layers of flat round hot stones .
Of course there is SO MUCH MORE to see there but I guess a 2-days-stay is simply not enough :)
