Passion Street (Namyeong, Seoul, South Korea)

One of the best parts of living in a big city and particularly Seoul is the close proximity of food options. Living at The Prime Apartments has definitely been super convenient.

Meerkat Cafe (Seoul, S.Korea)

I was surprised to learn of a new cafe that opened up recently in Hongdae featuring adorable meerkats! I mean really, as if dog, cat, sheep, and raccoons weren’t enough, someone had to take it up a notch. I honestly wasn’t really sure what to expect, but knew I had to make a trip to…
