Korea 2019 | Back from Our Summer Holiday in Seoul!

We're home from a summer family holiday in Seoul, Korea! This time the boy came with us.. and I think it was his first time back in Seoul since spring 2012???

Actually, even though summer had officially started in  Korea, it really wasn't hot at all. We went in early June and most days were cool and wet, around 20℃? Like "air-con" weather... very comfortable to walk and do the touristy things outdoors.

This is one of my fave photo from the trip. We were walking from Insadong to eat Samgyetang {Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup} at Tosokchon nearby and managed to pass by Gyeongbokgung just as the sun was setting..

Even though I brought my Sony camera along, I actually didn't use it as I found that the boy's Huawei P30 Pro mobile phone was less bulky, and took fantastic photos anyway haha. Hardly need any editing in colours! I think the pic above, which was taken with his phone, has #nofilter or editing too.. just in the wide angle mode. 

When we returned, Lil Pumpkin fell sick {she still has a phlegmy cough by the way}, then I caught the flu and the boy fell ill too so I haven't had much of a mood to blog about our trip, although in my mind there's really a lot of things I want to write down and share about hehe..

I hope I do get down to writing them all before I forget!

Also have lots to catch up at work too since I was away a few weeks due to the trip and my sickness... so sorry if I haven't been reply to my emails or comments much.

I'll try to start posting on our next week and few topics to cover in mind..

Like a review on our hotel gym haha, the factory outlet we chanced upon to buy cheap flavoured almonds in Myeongdong, our first traditional jjimjilbang {Korean bathhouse} experience near Seoul Station, our first authentic Korean tea-house experience, how to enjoy Everland theme park as a family or where to get the best Samgyetang {Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup}.

If there's anything you'd like me to cover, feel free to contact me and let me know too (★^O^★)

Meanwhile, you can pop by {and follow hehe!} my Instagram and FB page for more of our trip updates and pictures (◕‿◕✿)

Documented it on-the-go on my IG Story Highlights - look for Korea #2 and Korea #3 folders for this trip, and our 2018 winter holiday in Kimchi-land stories are in Korea #1 and Korea #2 folders.
