Epilogue – 2016 Autumn Romance in S. Korea

This was a trip that almost never came to fruition. What was meant to be a quick-dash-and-return solo trip (for me) ended up a vacation for the both of us because the stars aligned. Alright I was just jesting. Our cancer-stricken Paris’ health condition is…

A Compedium of Seoul, As We Know It

Jeju, the Island of Gods D3

[02 Nov 2016] This is our third and final day in Jeju, and we didn’t even have a full day since our flight back to Seoul was schedule in the late evening. To make the most of whatever time we had left, we started…

Jeju, the Island of Gods D2: Indoors

The Astounding ‘Park in the Sky’

Of Traipsing Korean Palaces

[28 Oct 2016] Years ago, we went to South Korea for our mini honeymoon, during which we must have visited many of the palaces. But I don’t remember much, with it being more than a decade ago. This trip, we decided to revisit some…

Of Gyeongbokgung Palace by Night

[27 Oct 2016] It was by chance that I discovered about this special night event at Gyeongbokgung Palace (경복궁) , one of the five main palaces situated in Seoul and the largest. As our trip this time coincided with the last days of the event…

The Enchanting Nami Island

[27 Oct 2016] It was a side trip we talked and talked (to death, actually) of making for several trips now, yet it never materialised till this autumn. The location in question is Nami Island (남이섬) . In order to get to Nami Island situated…
