Korea has always been on the top of my travel list since ten years ago, until now; the Korea bucket list is finally emptying out!

I went with my friend who has been to Korea many times. She took me around Seoul, showed me the ropes, became my photographer and translator, ate grilled pork belly with me (she's a vegetarian), and put up with me kekeke. I'm very thankful for her, and I'll treat her to all the greens she can eat LOL.

When we arrived in Korea, it was cold -in the low 40's, I believe. It felt nice in the beginning, then I started to shiver. I thought it wouldn't be that cold, especially during the daytime, and so I didn't bring enough warm clothing. Big mistake. But luckily, it's not difficult to find inexpensive (also good quality) clothes in Korea, and I was able to buy as much warm clothing as my heart and body desired (and needed). So, layers on layers. I looked chubby. The cold was so good for my skin, though.

Myeongdong

The shopping district of Seoul is Myeongdong. This place is so cool! All the stores are so unique and inventive with their exterior appearance. I didn't get much pics because I was taking it all in. And of course, I was shopping. There were so much skin care stores, I didn't know which one to go into.

Seoul Searching

Headed to Garosugil to check out a friend's shop and noticed that this district is niice! It seems like a ritzy area of Seoul. You can certainly tell by all the Mercedes, BMWs, and Audis rolling around.

So, my friend told me this was a Vampire cafe or something like that. I can usually spot phoniness, and this place did not seem phony. I think there were real vampires in there. This place gave me the creeps! The people inside were all wearing black, and they're pale skinned of course, and just staring out, waiting for someone to come into their store, waiting for someone to feast on! Aahh!

Hangul Museum

I've always had a strong interest on writing systems, and one that I was interested in, and actually studied for 2 years, was the Korean alphabet. I made a point to go to the Hangul museum to learn more about its origin and history. The museum had a lot of fun interactive pieces.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza

Visited the new Dongdaemun Design Plaza, and we strolled through during Seoul Fashion Week. I totally forgot about it. I had my cute outfit picked out, but completely slipped my mind and forgot about it. I was planning on stalking some of my fave celebs, designers and fashion bloggers kekeke. I didn't get to see any of them, though :(
