Photo Post: Weekend In Seoul

Last weekend I ventured to Seoul with the ladies. Here are some photos from our trip! πŸ™‚

Seoul (16 of 1)We stayed at the Grand Hyatt Seoul, SUPER NICE with an amazing breakfast and dinner buffet. My mouth is watering just thinking about it…

Friday evening we ventured to Vatos Urban Tacos for dinner. I don’t have any pictures from our Friday night out but the food was absolutely delicious and we had the best time. πŸ™‚

Seoul (5 of 1)On Saturday we went to a traditional Korean tea ceremony. These ladies taught us all about the proper way to drink and serve tea, as well as some other neat Korean facts and traditions.

Seoul (26 of 1)We all got to try on hanboks (traditional Korean dresses). Aren’t the colors awesome?

Seoul (2 of 1)We passed this temple while walking around the city. Forgive me for I have forgotten the name of it. I didn’t have enough time for a tour but will definitely be going back to check it out.

Seoul (13 of 1)I’m obsessed with the doors here.

Seoul (14 of 1)As you can see there were a TON of people out on this gorgeous Saturday afternoon.

Seoul (15 of 1)This gate was an entrance to one of the houses. I just love all of the detail.

Seoul (18 of 1)Sunday we stopped into a market before heading back home. I saw a couple eating octopus tentacles that were freshly cut. They were still squiggling on the plate like worms. I didn’t think to get a photo. I turned away as soon as I saw it and almost threw up. Yuck.

Seoul (19 of 1)Fishy, Fishy, Fishy!

Seoul (23 of 1)I call this one “The Last Oink”.

Seoul (22 of 1)I tried one of these. It was yummy but very greasy so I got a little nauseous. I don’t think my stomach can handle market food. Darn.

Seoul (17 of 1)This was the sunset from our hotel our last night in Seoul. It was absolutely gorgeous but dang, that smog. 😦

I hope you all enjoyed the photos! Adam and I spent today (Easter) touring Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon. I will be posting a blog within the next few days on that trip. It was a gorgeous day and I ended up taking a ton of photos and learned a lot along the way. I’m looking forward to sharing our adventure with you on the next post. Until then, enjoy this sweet message from my kiddos. πŸ™‚


Happy Easter, Everyone!
