Andra dagen (och den sista, för den här gången) i Seoul. Tycker jag kom in i rätt tid hyggligt snabbt. Tror det är åtta timmars skillnad mot hemma så lite förvånande. Vaknade hyggligt utvilad och planen för dagen är att besöka ett jättestort tempel, gå på matmarknad och leta upp nånstans där jag kan se på bronsmatchen mellan Australien och Sverige. Då jag ska flyga ut tidigt på söndag morgon snålade jag in på hotell, tänkte ta några - typ sex timmar i en vilstol på loungen på flygplatsen och innan dess skulle jag "dygna" som Sandra brukar säga. Jag tror det betyder att man hänger i så länge det går innan man åker iväg nånstans och jag antar att detta dygnande kombineras med alkohol. Eftersom jag inte reser med incheckat bagage så behöver man ju ... read more

Seoul i Sydkorea. ' Vad får du för bild när du tänker på Sydkorea och på huvudstaden Seoul? Fram till för några dagar sedan var min egen bild rätt luddig, nåt OS för många år sedan, hela tiden stök med grannen i norr, Korean BBQ och så känner jag några sköna snubbar med ursprung från Sydkorea. Ungefär så. Mina insikter är något bättre nu. Incheon - flygplatsen - en modern sak där bara en av vingarna i en av terminalerna är lika stor som Arlanda. Det man slås av är att det är så otroligt rent och välhållet. Inte bara på flygplatsen utan i hela stan. Och då inte kliniskt på Singaporianskt höga-böter vis utan jag tror att det beror på att gemene man vill ha det så. Efter lite pyssel med att förstå biljettsystemet för ... read more

21st to 26th April 2023 - I travelled on a 5-day tour to South Korea with a travel company in Hanoi. There were 25 Vietnamese tourists and a tour guide who was with us during the whole tour. The tour cost VND 13.5 million (USD 570). It was inexpensive as Jeju Air re-started their route again after the pandemic and offered a promotion price. In return, we had to follow their program and visited all the stores on the tour. After a hectic trip to Europe last year, I decided to let someone take care of my journey and also wanted to have some companions on the trip. I shared the room with a girl on the tour. We all got along well and I really enjoyed being with these people. The flight from Hanoi to ... read more

I love South Korea to death and that is my favorite place! I enjoyed visiting South Korea as it has the best views and history to watcH! I got to see the museums in South KOrea as well as I got to stroll around Downtown! I was on the cruise and I got to try out the best foods even at the Icheon AIrport I watched! I enjoyed exploring the Temples of South Korea as well as explored the Changing Guards. Inconvenience but I got to take the bus 45 minutes from the airport ICN to downtown. Note: You can't walk from the airport to downtown! It was amazing! I took a lot of pictures and saw a lot of lakes and oceans of South Korea! I also transited there in 2018! I visited there twice! ... read more

And we're back!!! And this time, with the whole family. Quite a challenge to manage our folks because of their age...but then again, it was not that bad as expected. Actually, it was a very good experience, and very good it was. We arrived late because of the delays (What's new?), but spirits are still up. Unfortunately, public transport is no more so we need to take private cars. We spoke to one and agreed with the price and went off to the parking lot only to find that he drives a pick up.... and we are 8!!! Funny is that the driver insisted to put us all in to which I objected...then a misunderstanding broke. On one side is a Korean guy speaking in Korea, and on the other a Filipino guy talking in English..... ... read more

The Gwanjung markets is an undercover clothes by day/food by night market. The Netflix series ‘street food', the Seoul episode, focused on this market and one proprietor in particular. We had a snack of kimchi + meat dumplings there, washed down with a cold Cass beer, before heading off to another stall to have Toppoki (rice cakes with chilli pepper sauce) and Gimbap, a Korean type of nori roll filled with beatle leaf, rice and vegetables. While we were eating, we noticed photos of British chef Gordon Ramsay , and as we left, the owner insisted on feeding us more gimbap like she did to Gordon! Afterward, we stopped by a really nice craft brew pub near our hotel which was blasting K pop videos! The next day, we headed off early to wander around the ... read more
