The Seoul portion of my trip was short, just 2 days since I've already visited Seoul a few times.  Seoul is one of those cities I never tire of.  There are so many hidden neighborhoods that aren’t on tourist maps.  

While in Seoul I decided to go to the Gangnam area to see what the "Gangnam Style" fuss is all about.  I went there during the day which is probably why it wasn’t very exciting.  I did notice the people there were a bit more fashionable and that there were a lot eating and drinking places.  I’m sure at night with all the neon signs the area would totally come to life.  There was no sign of Psy, though.

I must look Korean because I don’t know how many times people approached me to ask questions.  It happened while hiking, while in the caves, while in the subway, while on the streets.  Boy, did people look confused when they heard English come out of my mouth!

Next stop, London and Paris!

So nice to see all the pictures from your travels. It has been over 20 years since I had visited Korea. I am glad you are having such a wonderful trip. What's next?


When you go to London, Please go to a pub and ask for order something, then ask them again to pack them into the doggy bag to go in hurry. They may do something funny reaction (I hope they love jokes). This was happened in 1993 that I was visited there. The theater is one of my recommendation.
