I did have the advantage of staying with a friend and her family, so I saved on accommodation.
I have had a bit of a Korea fascination for some time... nothing historical, just the Korean way of life! The food, the people and my obsession with Gangnam Style and kimchi sort of inspired me. I also have a lovely friend, Hyomi. She was one of my English students about two years ago, but converted into a friend. We come from such different worlds, yet we get along like two peas in a pod.
Here are some of favourite pictures from the capital city, Seoul... Opa Gangnam Style of course.
