I literally have several thousands of photos I took during my 2 months in Korea.  There’s so many I want to share, but I don’t want to overwhelm everyone so I’ll just be splitting them up and adding them to my blog when I have a chance.  These photos were taken in early to mid December before all the crazy snow!  So get ready for some awesome snow pics in my next entry!

I have a thing with going to high places to take in the view.  I love it!  I was actually afraid of heights for a period of my life, but now there’s something so awesome about going up high and getting an unobstructed view!

In my search for awesome views of Seoul I asked my cousin if he knew any places really high up and we snuck up to the top of a building!  Totally worth it!

Namsan Tower

One day after eating sushi with my cousin we ended up at a playground in Hongdae.  We thought it would be fun to go on the merry go round to take some pics, but seriously in order to get this photo I thought I was going to throw up!!!!  The things we do to get a fun photo!

I went to this cool place north of Seoul called Heyri.  They have really awesome art there and an English Village.

The view from this mountain near my cousins place.  Next 2 photos taken with my point and shoot.

In Seoul there’s Seoul Tower also known as Namsan Tower.  It’s huge so you can’t miss it no matter where you are in Seoul.  As I was up there I couldn’t believe so many people lived in such a small amount of space!  It’s pretty apparent when all you see are tall buildings everywhere and you’re bumping into every other person on the street!

All these couples come to Namsan Tower and attach a lock.  There are so many locks up there now it’s insane!

Covered in locks!!!!!

View from the top!  I’m so happy I went on a clear day!


Hyatt Hotel in Itaewon.  That’s one huge hotel!

Wow 2009 has come and gone and it’s already 2010 for me!!!  It’s past 4am, but I’m still up and I wanted to start off the new year with a blog post!

I went to the Han River with my cousins and uncle to shoot fireworks, but because it was so cold we were only there for about 15 minutes before we felt like our fingers and toes were going to fall off so we left and went to McDonalds!!!  My first meal of the year = McDonalds chocolate milkshake + french fries!  Most people make resolutions to lose weight and eat healthier, but we headed straight to McDonalds =P  (probably because it was the closest 24 hour place around us!)

I hope everyone back in the states has an amazing and safe new year!

Hi Everyone! I’ve been in Korea for about a month now and I have a month left of my vacation! I’ve had quite the adventure so far! A few days after arriving I ended up getting swine flu!!! And most recently I ended up getting the stomach flu! How come it’s always when you travel you end up getting sick?! I was so careful about washing my hands, avoiding people who are coughing, taking my vitamins, etc etc etc. But I guess my immune system is horrible, or the flu is just a lot stronger in Korea!

Well in-between being sick I’ve been able to see a lot of cool things and even saw it snow twice!!!!! Since I didn’t update for so long there are SO MANY photos!!!! I thought it would be fun to mix it up and use Poladroids. This is the most awesome program ever! It’s completely free and it makes your photos look so fun! Enjoy my first month in Korea!

For those curious all these photos are a mix from my dslr, point & shoot, and blackberry! Yes my blackberry works in Korea and it’s so awesome!
