    2018 Spring Specials Roundup

    It’s Spring Time in South Korea! I can still remember my trip last year which was a little late for the spring festivals, but still very much within the season for which I luckily had the chance to catch the spring flowers in full bloom, especially the tulips in Everland. Seoul is beautiful all year round, and that’s a given. But thanks to spring and its comfortingly cool weather, Seoul becomes a great place for couples, friends, and families, to experience the outdoors. It is also during spring when a wide array of festivals and events celebrating the season happen throughout the country. I have carefully picked the best of…

    Seoulful Encounters [Busan/Seoul 2017] – Arrival in Seoul and KTX to Busan

    In 2014, KORAIL began to offer KTX high-speed train connections from Incheon International Airport to Seoul, Daegu, Busan and other cities in Korea. However, the Incheon Airport KTX service has been suspended as of the end of March 2018. The main reason was that the demand was too low and ridership stayed far below necessary numbers.  This blog post was written when the KTX Incheon-Busan service was still available. Note that KTX Seoul-Busan is still open and very much available. I arrived in Seoul around 5 in the morning of April 17. It was still cold outside but the temperature inside Incheon International Airport was just right. I got a…

    Seoulful Encounters [Busan/Seoul 2017] – 10 Days in Busan and Seoul Spring Itinerary

    About a year or two ago, when we were talking about how we wanted to celebrate our respective 40th birthdays, my husband asked if I wanted to do a Europe tour, or visit the US again, or maybe throw a party. I said I just wanted a low-key celebration and a solo trip to Seoul to spend at least 2 weeks there and enjoy the place at my own sweet pace. Now, I finally just concluded my 10-day trip to Busan and Seoul. It’s the first time I traveled without my husband and son and while I frequently found myself being homesick and missing them during the first 6 days,…
