I love traveling. Who doesn’t , right?
…get to explore a new place.. breathe in new air… learn a new culture… see fantastic architecture… try amazing new food.. see some amazing people…and the list goes on and on and on..
It was recently that we (my family and i) traveled to Korea. It has been a place that was on my bucket list to visit other than the amazing Japan that I can never get bored of exploring. But the decision to visit the country was pretty much a no brainer especially when I have been completely hooked with Korean Dramas lately. Secretly madly in love with Ji Jang Wook and Sunghoon which the hubs has been strangely supportive with my newly found affair with them on TV.
Back to the trip…..
As the kids are no longer toddlers, they are now much easier to communicate with (as for which if they will listen or not, thats another story to tell all together… HAHAHHA). I have been really thankful that traveling by air with them has always been smooth sailing.
Our flight was 8am in the morning hence we had to be at the airport by 6am. We called the cab to pick us up which he came around 5am. Needless to say, the kids were knocked out a couple of hours in our flight and both had an hour plus nap (woohoo … break time for me!)
I was pretty excited as I didn’t know what to expect when we reach Korea so I was up all the way.. 😁
We arrived around 3:30pm and by the time we reached our Airbnb at almost 5pm and was ridiculously hungry!!! I had a pathetic tasting Nasi Lemak on the plane which I ended up not eating.
On the contratry, upon arriving our Airbnb was really fantastic. It is located at Cheonggyecheon-ro Stream which was only walking distance to Myeongdong. Large enough to fit 6- 8 pax. Depending on how big/small you are in size.
It was a loft style concept and I was completely in love with the design of this place when I first saw it. It reminded me bit of Japan as it was pretty small and cozy. We couldn’t exactly stand up and walk around upstairs as we needed to crawl to move from one place to another. For me and the husband, it was a pretty cool experience. Once we dropped our bags we went on our first Food Hunt.
We walked across the street to arrive at Myeongdong and soon saw this BBQ restaurant that caught our eye.
We ate and ate and ate..
The food was amazing!
We then walked around Myeongdong Street and did a bit of shopping and more eating. 🙂
By now, it was close to 9pm and we were all pretty tired, but excited at the same time. Time seems to past really fast too. It was definitely way past sleeping time for the kids. Mind you, my kids sleeps really early everyday and they wakes up really early as well. So soon after dessert we decided to head back to rest.
Soon after bathing, my babies were snuggled up sleeping together while I had the perfect view to watch them sleep throughout the night. #preciousmoment #motherslove
