Where We Stayed in Korea: 24 Guesthouse Seoul Station

24 Guesthouse Seoul Station; Richel Goes Places (1)

I was supposed to Airbnb my way through South Korea, but it’s cheaper to stay in a hostel when there’s just a few of you in a group. There were supposed to be three of us on our first day but one cancelled and then there’s just two left. I was also kind of panicky on where we’ll be staying as it’s just a few weeks until the trip at this point. I scoured through Agoda looking through the affordable hostel options that meet all my requirements, and I ended up with 24 Guest House Seoul Station.

The Best Way to Display Flowers in Your Home

littelflowerhutsgIf you ask one thing that you can do with flowers other than giving it as a  gift is decorate your home with flowers. You don’t have to worry if you don’t have enough space to plant flowers on your front home because you can still display the beauty of flowers inside your home. Even better, you will always be able to look and feel their beauty everyday this way.

Korea Day 3: Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland

Korea Day 3 Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland; Richel Goes Places

Our third day in Seoul is the busiest yet, which is saying a lot. We were ambitious, you see, and trying to fit all the “must-visit” in our short visit. For this day, we were planning to visit Bukchon Hanok Village, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, and Everland. Four big places in a day? We were just asking for our very tired feet and numerous (mis)adventures in a single day.

Korea Day 2: COEX Mall, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Gwangjang Market, Hongdae

COEX + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Gwangjang Market + Hongdae

Well, it certainly took me forever to update this blog series. The number of backlogs I have is too damn high. I just got back from my Japan trip last, last week (!!!) so the travel high is still with me. There’s also a 70% chance that I’m going back to Korea this year SO!!! I’m having a good year, so far! Anyway…

For my second day in Korea, I was going to meet up with Yuna and her family later that afternoon which means I have more than half of the day to myself. I didn’t have much to do in my agenda. I was only planning to visit COEX mall and that opens around 10AM.
