The beginning of Fall at Nami Island

135While Thanksgiving has passed and Christmas is right around the corner, I am not done telling the tale of our experience of the beginning of fall.  I really took my time in doing so, either that or I’m just really slow at coming up with what to write.

Rare Sundate

1

I’m taking a quick break from blogging about Korea because I know how long I’ve already dragged it for, so I’m writing about something more recent.  Working life and “adulting” tend to get in the way a lot of what I want to achieve that I’m slowly losing interest in doing what I do.  Therefore, with that said, I try to “run away” to nearby places here in Asia just so my mind can be refreshed and I can be motivated once again.  There was this art exhibition by Team Lab that we wanted to check out, so Carlos and I decided to go to Shenzhen last Sunday as we were both off from work.

Petite France, Gapyeong

111Petite France, a quaint little town surrounded by mountains in Gapyeong which we got to visit whilst in Korea.  It took more or less two hours to get there from Seoul and trust me when I say that the ride was nowhere near pleasant, but what we saw was definitely worth it.  The first time I’ve seen this village was when I watched the Korean TV series “You Who Came from the Stars” starring Jun Ji-hyun and Kim Soo-hyun and “Running Man“, a Korean variety show.  I won’t go into detail about the shows, but I thought the place looked really romantic and I believe that’s the reason they call it Little France.    Continue reading “Petite France, Gapyeong”

Seoul Adventure Part 4-3: Bright Roses L-E-D me to you

 

When cheesiness strikes, you come up with the cheesiest title ever, so voila.  Gardens with flowers tend to be pretty during the day time, but this particular one we went to was not your average garden.  These LED roses light up at night and you’d be surprised as to how pretty they can be.  We took a stroll one night after dinner, just outside Dongdaemun Plaza (DDP) to see them.  Apparently, there are 25,500 of them and a lot of people go there to take pictures just because I’d say it’s obligatory.  There are a lot of foodtrucks beside the DDP, so just in case you get hungry, you know where to go.

Bisous,

Regine Anne

 

Seoul Adventure Part 4-2: & The New

76Contrary to my previous post, Common Ground, is a good representation of modernism in my opinion because it showcases the creativity of the person(s) who came up with this idea.  Stores in Shipping Containers?  That would’ve never entered my mind if I hadn’t seen this.  And special thanks to Carlos for taking me to such a cool place.  Wouldn’t have known about it if it weren’t for him.

Seoul Adventure Part 4-1: The Old

69While the saying “Out with the old and in with the new” progresses in technological advancements and other aspects, it is not often the case for historical sites.  Carlos and I stumbled upon The Gyeongbokgung Palace when we were near Bukchon Hanok Village the day before, so we let our curiosity get in the way and decided to check it out.  After all, one can never be too dependent on books when it comes to wanting to learn about a city’s history.

Seoul Adventure Part 3-3: Love Locks at Namsan Seoul Tower

59

Carlos and I have had our fair share of seeing different towers and with that said, more often than not, we would climb up just to have an overview of the city.  And Seoul was no different as we went there at night.  The lights were very mesmerizing, of course, but the main reason we went there was because of the fact that couples could put love locks below the tower.

Seoul Adventure Part 3-2: Sunny, Windy & Real Talk

3637If I were to describe my favourite weather, it’d be having the sun out, blue skies and the wind blowing in my face.  I’ve always loved winter for some reason, but having been able to experience fall or the beginning of it in Seoul was amazing.  We were able to dress up in long sleeved shirts, while still being able to show a bit of skin.
