Goyang Flower Festival

Goyang Flower Festival (Ilsan, South Korea) Have we mentioned how much we adore spring in Korea? We love it, and the Goyang flower festival is one of those reasons. The colors are so vibrant – blue skies, bright flowers, shining sun (without the unbearable heat!) and just a general happiness among everyone. It’s so great. […]

Korean Temple stay

Korean Temple stay Last year, we went on a Korean Temple stay and it was so much fun. It was quite a different experience for us and something we’ll always remember. We went with a group from Adventure Korea and they did a great job leading the trip. We got to meet and get to know […]

Korean baseball

Seoul As spring approaches (or is basically already here!), we’re reminded of our love of Seoul and the entire country of Korea. When the sun shines and the air is warm, we just can’t help but feel so happy & excited for the change in weather. Winter (and ski season) is behind us and we’re […]

Seoul Rooftop

Seoul Rooftop A few months ago, I stayed with my friend in Itaewon before an early morning flight from Incheon to Hong Kong for a quick holiday. I woke up early, anxious for my holiday and climbed up to his Seoul rooftop to check-out the city views from his tiled roof. It was a chilly […]

Ice Skating in Seoul

Ice Skating in Seoul Dig out your ice skates (because I’m sure you brought them with you), and start reviewing your triple sow cow technique, because this Holiday Adventure will have you gliding through the Seoul Plaza in style. Ok, let’s be honest, a lot of us won’t be so much gliding as wide-eyed and wobbling, […]
