Traveling is Good for my Seoul

War Memorial of Korea

Seoul, South Korea


This was my second time visiting South Korea and it was well worth the long travel days and jet lag. I didn’t get to sightsee when I went to visit last year so I was determined to get to do a little more this time. It’s difficult to experience all of such a cool city in a short amount of time. The first part of my experience involved learning how to use the Korean subway. Thanks to technology, the City Rail Map App made it very simple to take the train to and throughout Seoul. I started by going up to the Seoul Tower, visited the War Memorial and neighboring sights, stopped by the Gyeongbokgung Palace and shopped a little in Itaweon before the weather got too cold and rainy. An old friend who recently relocated to Seoul for her new job was able to meet up with me for lunch– it’s a small world after all! It was a great time and a perfect way to spend my one-week break. The next break I get, I will be traveling to Italy with my brother and his wife!


Until next time….

    Hi chingu. anyang ee ca sheep shio…Or whatever it is spelled. I was in Korea for 2 yrs in the military and enjoyed visiting several Buddhist Temples in Seoul and neighboring cities on my off times. I am an expert in Kimchee eating and many different Korean dishes as my wife was Korean and a terrific cook. I was stationed at the DMZ, but drove into Seoul many times in my job. Can’t wait for next year for the Sun. Hope you enjoyed Korea. I did when I was experiencing the culture away from the base. Stay well and hurry home.
