    Seoulful Encounters [Busan/Seoul 2017] – Family Fun Day at Everland thru Trazy.com

    Last April 24, my husband, 4 year old son, mom, dad, and I were able to visit Everland through the blogger sponsorship program of Trazy.com.

    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.

    Heart and Seoul 2014 – Gyeongbokgung Palace and National Folk Museum of Korea v.2

    This is part of a series of posts under the category Heart and Seoul 2014. This will just be a photo-heavy post because I have written about Gyeongbokgung or Gyeongbok Palace in a previous post. For me, nothing much has changed since I visited in 2012 except that the free hanbok booth is now located near the Gwanghwamun Gate just opposite the ticket counter. Same as in 2012, we witnessed the changing of the guards, we wore hanboks, and explored the palace. We also dropped by the National Folk Museum of Korea which is connected to the palace grounds. Since the palace was just a walking distance from 126 Mansion…
