Seoul Nights Time Lapse

A friend of mine recently introduced me to time lapses on the GoPro and showed me what fun it is!  Scott and I decided to try a time lapse from outside our window at The Prime Apartments near Namyeong Station in Seoul, South Korea.  The end result came out quite nice; definitely looking forward to…

Itaewon the Burger (Itaewon, Seoul, South Korea)

Right on the Itaewon the Burger sign they state they are the “Best Burger in Town,” so Scott and I thought we’d pop in to see if it was true! Surprisingly, the restaurant has been open for about a year, but honestly there are so many restaurants in Itaewon, I feel like I don’t have…

Tempur Cinema (Seoul, South Korea)

The CGV Movie theater at iPark Mall at Yongsan Station recently underwent a full renovation.  I was surprised as I thought the existing theaters were already pretty state of the art, but apparently I had no idea what they had in store for us! With these renovations, they added a ton of new theaters featuring…

Jinju Lantern Festival (Jinju, South Korea)

The 2017 Jinju Namgang Lantern Festival (진주 남강유등축제) is coming up again from October 1 to October 15. We visited last year and definitely were surprised by the number and variety of the lanterns. Jinju really means business when it comes to this festival! If you’re looking for something to do this weekend or next,…

If you’ve looked at the title of this post, then you might be wondering who in their right mind dedicates a museum to a toilet. Well, let me tell you about Mr. Sim Jae-duck, the man behind the Toilet Museum, also known as the first Toilet Theme Park in the world! Mr. Sim was according…

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…

Touring the Blue House (Seoul, South Korea)

Sorry that I have been a little off the radar the last few weeks. Scott and I just went back to the States for a little. We actually got some beach time in, so looking forward to posting a little bit about that next week! But now that we’re back to Seoul, I wanted to…

Parting of the Sea (Jindo, South Korea)

When I mention the parting of the sea, I’m sure your first thought is, didn’t Moses do that in the Bible? Well you would be correct, but in Jindo, South Korea, they have a Sea Parting Festival that is unrelated to the story that we know. The Jindo Miracle Sea Road Festival occurs once a…

A great day at Seoul Forest

We have been slowly hitting all the parks in Seoul and have been wanting to visit Seoul Forest because we heard that the park is very expansive, and also that you get to have some close encounters with deer! And by now you all know how much I love to get up close and personal with…
