French Art in South Korea

Thursday, July 10, 2014      12 comments

The French Impressionist museum, Musée d'Orsay, has a special exhibit in Seoul, and that's where I spent my afternoon. It was lovely, especially since it turned into a HOT day (100 or so F, 35 C) - and staying indoors was a better option that r... Read more

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      14 comments

I finally had my bingsu! Sort of good, sort of weird, and hard to explain. And no, I didn't eat the whole thing. But hey, part of travel includes trying new foods, and today it was the bingsu. rollingluggagers.blogspo

We had a great day - spent the afternoon in a lovely park, walked around and got in plenty of steps, played with deer from Taiwan, and then had a traditional burger dinner at a restaurant. Looked for fireworks, saw a little bit of the display f... Read more

Bawled out for eating with chopsticks instead of a spoon

Thursday, July 03, 2014      8 comments

We are having our continuing funny adventures all over Seoul - we have our passports, I was told I was eating my sulgogi all wrong, and we've gotten used to the rainy season. Except one toe, which continues to protest. (I'm still managing 3 to... Read more

Orange flowers, orange mosaic

Sunday, June 29, 2014      7 comments

We're enjoying Seoul so much, we think we're going to stay here a bit longer. (And the prices of rental cars are insane. We could take the train around, but, well, we found so much more to do in this area.) So, more Seoul. ro... Read more

Saturday, June 21, 2014      12 comments

We found a few fun parks in our neighbourhood, and were having a good time. And then some sleazy old man offered DH $5 for me!!!! Yes, I'd have smacked the old perv upside the head. Fortunately, I was trying out the exercise machines ... Read more

Made it to the Michelangelo exhibit

Tuesday, June 17, 2014      7 comments

as well as the US Embassy, and the War Memorial, and walked 14,600+ steps - that's about 7 miles for the day. So the fried pork and vegs in a honey sauce for lunch was hopefully burned up. (It truly was about the only thing they served in ... Read more

I swear, my toe bandage makes it look like my toe is flipping off everyone! Too funny! Not much exciting, but still enjoying Seoul. Weather has been delightful the past few days, definitely summer without being horrendously hot. <... Read more
