My Favorite Shots: Seoul

Posted in City| Korea| Seoul
Unfortunately, I only had a few short days to wander around the streets of Seoul, S. Korea.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from my days strolling through the city.

One of the necessary games when I get to a new city: “Figure out the Currency”

Traditional Korean home called a hanok found in the Bukchon Hanok Village

Photos from the Changdeokgung Palace (one of three palaces in Seoul) and its secret gardens.

I love the colorful details found on the Korean palaces

Fresh orages for sale on the streets of Seoul
The true reason why I had to leave Seoul. I could not stop eating this glutenous rice bread from the Paris Baguette bakery. 
I just thought this guy was adorable – window advertisement at Baskin Robbins

High Tech: at the local coffee shop, the beepers they give you to let you know your food is ready have video advertising on them to keep you entertained.

I saw racks of gas masks in every subway station in Seoul which I found a little disconcerting. 

Yeah – I just couldn’t bring myself to try the boiled silk worms… I understand its an acquired taste and with only 4 days in Seoul, I doubt that’s something I would have acquired.

This shop name just made me smile…

    Did you say Baskin Robbins as in my personal favorite chocolate mint?

      The very one indeed! I didn’t let myself go inside…just window shopped.
