Over the Forth of July vacation I took a short trip to Korea with my friend. We had 4 whole days, which is a good amount to take in a lot of the sights and foods of Seoul. We went to the famous places like the Seoul Tower, the old palaces, different markets, museums, and the DMZ. However, one of the main reasons to go to Korea is for the food. Every meal, no matter what you order, comes with Kimchi and although the food was fairly spicy it was always really good.
However, 4 days is still not enough to satisfy me and I am sure that I will be going back to Korea fairly soon.
Dressing up in traditional clothes.
At the old palace.
Korean night stall foods are also quite good.
We went to a restaurant that served the traditional royal court cuisine complete with a dance show.
It was raining the day we went to the DMZ so we didnt get to see North Korea. The tunnel was pretty interesting.
Of course we are Korean BBQ.
My name in Korean
Some cool Korean guy making straw shoes.
The tea cafe we went to had birds flying all around it. This one tried to steal my sweet.
We decided to see the Nanta show, which was a lot better than expected.
