• Han River Traffic

    A Photographic Journey Along the Han River.

    Sometimes I go out with the intention of taking informative photos. Photos that will be helpful for visitors and photos that help explain my writing. However, the other day I needed some new photos for Instagram and I thought that the Han River (more specifically, Yeouido) was the perfect place. I asked my friend if he wanted to visit with me, and…

    Best Market in Seoul? Namdaemun Market!

    Namdaemun Market is the largest market in Korea and sells a large variety of different goods. Established in 1964, it is still going strong over 50 years later! Namdaemun is open from 11 pm – 5 pm (5 pm the next day, the market runs through the night. Info from here). The market sells nearly anything you could want, and…

    Seoul Streams – Summer in Seoul

    It feels like mere weeks ago I was writing about how spring was finally here! Now, just weeks later, I am sitting here writing about how summer has finally come. This year’s cherry blossom season was rather short, and it feels like there hasn’t been a big downtime between that and summer. While the temperature isn’t quite 35 degrees yet,…

    The Most Picturesque City on Earth!

    Many people have heard of Seoul. Most people know where it is, some famous aspects of it and have maybe even seen some pictures of it. But I feel like most people don’t know much about it further than basic facts, and I know that most people haven’t seen how beautiful it really is. Through my blog, I have been…

    Seoul’s Grand Plan. Seoullo 7017

    One of Seoul’s newest, biggest, and most beautiful attractions is Seoullo 7017. Originally a highway, the structure was found to be dangerous and engineers deemed it unsafe for use after 2015. The plan was to destroy the highway, however, when the new mayor was elected, the plan was changed to instead ‘renovate’ the highway. The number 7017 represents the year…

    Cat Cafes – Crazy Cats!

      Seoul is known for many things, super fast internet, efficient public transport, vast amounts of culture and tradition… But it isn’t known as the city of cats, something that I have come to associate with Seoul more often than not. What do I mean exactly? Well, the city is full of stray cats, they are nearly everywhere. Indeed, it…

    Bukhansan, Nature Within the City!

    Forenote: This adventure took place over a year ago, but I want to share it because it was a unique and fun time. These photos were taken on that trip, on my phone and therefore aren’t the best quality. We went in winter, in summer Bukhansan is actually quite warm and nice. It definitely won’t have snow if you visit…

    The Best Beach in Korea?

    I’ve visited a few beaches in Korea, but I have always been quite underwhelmed by the experience and beauty of them. Whether muddy or overly crowded there has always been something that put me off enough to make me not want to visit again (although admittedly I have only been to beaches within a few hours of Seoul). Enter Sokcho!…

    Naksan Mountain!

    Following my recent adventures in Hyehwa (the northern area of Seoul) I have discovered a lot of new areas that I never knew about before. After visiting the Flower cafe on Wednesday, we decided to go for a walk to the nearby mountain Naksan. Naksan is located between Hyehwa and Hanseong university stations and provides a great break from the city,…
