Yup you read right, I’m heading to Seoul again for another vacation. Woohoo! I’m actually leaving this Thursday and I’ll be there for 6 days and 5 nights. My friend, Wendy, was hoping to join me for this trip but unfortunately she’s not able to make it so it’s another solo trip for me. Actually, in a way I prefer to travel alone as I find it less stressful (even in a country where you don’t really speak the language) because you can do what you want to do, go at whatever pace you want to do and eat when and whatever you want without having to worry about meeting your travel companion(s) needs. If I do travel with friends, I usually try to travel in a small group of say 2 or 3 but of course who you travel with is important too. Not all my friends who make ideal travel buddies but I’ve been fortunate enough to have a few of them who I have enjoyed travelling with.
Okay, back to my Seoul trip. When I went last year, I concentrated mainly on sightseeing and doing a little shopping. This time, I’m doing a little sightseeing and more shopping. This time round I know a bit more Korean thanks to my Korean classes but I doubted I’ll be able to have a full on conversation with someone lol I’ll at least be able to order my food and ask how much things are in Korean lol. I’ll be going to places I didn’t go to last time and a few places I did. I was hoping to catch the blooming of the cherry blossoms but they bloomed early this year so I’m not sure if they’ll still be around when I get there but fingers crossed. Another thing I’m looking forward to is the cool weather lol. It will be nice to escape the heat we’re having on this little island I call home.
I’ll post more of my trip later.
