The last several weekends I have packed my bags and explored a new area outside of Seoul. This weekend my body and mind needed a rest. Especially with the week I had at work! My blog is not a place for me to channel anything about my job but let me just say that it has been one hectic week!
Although, I couldn’t complain after guzzling down a red bean milkshake…
A friend and I explored an area of Seoul known as Hongdae in the late afternoon/evening. It was a really cool place. There are some really unique shops, restaurants, cafès, patios, and bars. I went into a store that was selling different things made from all recycled materials.
The most unusual experience was eating at a ‘Swedish restaurant’ that had Erdinger (German beer) and Alley Kat (Edmonton beer) on tap and served foods like penne and calamari… I have never eaten Swedish food but I am not quite sure if this restaurant is very Swedish… although they did have a large spirits menu…
I didn’t take too many photos… per usual… but let me just say that it was a great way to spend a Saturday after a long week at work!
Stay tuned for my food post… you will find a slightly stressed ‘waegook’ (foreigner) flipping up some flapjacks… or pancakes!
