Here is Part 2 of Day 03 which I had to split up the post because it was too image heavy. We were starving, like REALLY uber hungry after walking so much at Gyeongbokgung Palace, so off we went to find any eating place that we came across.
Tip: Try using these words: 맛있는 식당 어디에서 (Mas-issneun sigdang eodieseo yo?) which means delicious eatery where?
Mandu kimchi ramyeon (만두 김치 라면 )
Kimchi fried rice (김치 볶음밥 Kimchi bokk-eumbab)
Straight off we went cafe hunting (One of the must dos while in Korea)
Just as we left the previous cafe, it started raining heavily and had no choice but to seek shelter at Dunkin’ Donuts. It was nice to slow down the pace a little and while I people watch, Mom’s busy enjoying her donut!
And Hanok Village in Bukchon, here we come! Just a tip, take a bus up from the long UPHILL walk, if you’re feeling all tired and walk back down to the train station instead.
Would love to own a space like this and that space at the top would be my “Deep in thoughts” area.
Wanted to visit a museum that we saw along the walk but unfortunately it was closed.
Just when I was all sulking about not getting entry to the arts museum – SEEING YAYOI KUSAMA’S PUMPKIN SCULPTURE! OMGGGGGGGGG! This is the closest I have been to a world’s famous artist’s work! You can never imagine my excitement!!!!
Buses 01/02 would bring you up in a breeze!
I was dead beat tired by the time we got to Myeong-dong and had NO more energy to even take more snaps of the surroundings, which was a huge regret for me! Plus, we got into Myeong-dong way too late to even shop, my second regret of the trip!
