Seoul: Short and Sweet

The end of the school year is bad timing for travel, especially on a short weekend to another country when the closest airport is over an hour away from your home. But, for Cory, we'll do anything. We flew from Haneda Airport to Seoul, South Korea on Friday night and were back in our apartment by 7:30 on Sunday night. A whirlwind, to say the least. These are just a few random and non-chronological pictures of our short-sided perspective of the city in 36 hours.

foreign language meant utter reliance on Cory

Insadong: rare to see Starbucks written in another alphabet.

Buddhist Vegetarian Korean dinner: kimchi, bibinba, lettuce wraps

can you call their bluff? pretty sure Gwenyth Paltrow isn't vegetarian.

rice sweets

traditional crafts and tea shops

calligraphy brushes

oh! I wanted a picture of these Korean newlyweds, easily identifiable by their matching ensembles.

rows of beautiful bonsai on James's bike ride

bunkers which had once been unnecessary now seem to be revitalizing as tensions with North Korea rise

more evidence of fear: lockers filled with gas masks in Seoul train stations


Jesus and the cross light the way to Cory's house--neon crosses light up the cityscape at night
