I’m going to Seoul next month with Liam! Flights and accommodation have all been booked and now comes the fun part: PLANNING AND RESEARCH! I’ve been reading lots about Seoul’s food and fashion scene and I just CANNOT wait to get there. I’d like to blog while I am there but we’ll see.
If anyone has any recommendations on where I should go or any blogs/websites I should check out, let me know! I was actually really keen on visiting the Kimchi Museum (!!) but it’s closed down for now and won’t reopen till March. But I hear there’s lots of shopping around Myeongdog, Dongdaemun and Hongdae and loads of food everywhere.
This trip has come at a really great time. Liam was finally able to take leave from work and I will be leaving my current job just before Christmas. I don’t have anything lined up (I and am looking!) but I hope to use the spare time to work on my art, get into shape and learn Korean!
If anyone else is also doing Seoul research, I’d recommend you check out Seoulistic. It has pretty much everything you need to know about Seoul food, culture, shopping etc. I’ve also just created a Pinterest board to log all the useful articles and blogs. There’s nothing in it just yet but it will fill up soon!
