My friend Tamsyn needed to go to Seoul to renew her visa, so I decided to join her for a five day trip.
Day one consisted of exploring Gyeongbokgung Palace. It has been extremely cold, so we made sure to wear many layers. Seoul does not have the pollution Qingdao, so the blue skies and sharp, clear air were a welcome change.
In the evening we visited Myeongdong Market. Seoul is such a modern, clean, convenient city, so it has been a much needed break from the insanity of China.
We have been eating great food, drinking good coffee, and exploring the city. More to come on the rest of our days in Seoul.
