Photos from Gyeongbokgung Palace 경복궁

Image
During the first week here at Konkuk ISA (study abroad company) took us on excursions within Seoul almost everyday. On day 3 or 4 we went to Gyeongbokgung 경복궁 which is of course one of the palaces in Seoul.

I find the contrast when on the palace grounds of looking at the mountains on one side and seeing the city on the other fascinating. It feels like a fusion between old and new.

Kpop: Davichi - Turtle (다비치 - 거북이)

Image
It's been so long since I posted anything about kpop! This week's post features 다비치 Davichi's new video/title song 'Turtle' (거북이) from their 2nd album. I hear this song playing quite a bit in clothing stores when I'm walking around. I sort of recognized it to be them because it reminds me a bit of 'Don't Say Goodbye' (안녕이라고 말하지마). Which has been a favourite of mine since it's 2011 release.

The video has an Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, fairytale feel to it with lots of vintage props. Just my style! The lyrics for this song are also beautiful...

Beauty Haul: Innisfree & Etude House

Image
Today I have a somewhat small beauty product haul to share. I feel I should mention that I love makeup and there are many cosmetic/skincare shops here in Seoul. Just around the corner from Konkuk there is a street filled with them. Innisfree, Etude House, Tony Moly, Skinfood, Nature's Republic... I'm sure I'm missing some...

A few photos from Namsan Seoul Tower

Image
The first excursion our study abroad company took us on was out to Namsan Seoul Tower. It's a beautiful spot and the view is amazing. Also this where there are TONS of couple locks.


I'm in Seoul!

I'm not sure how to start this post to be honest. It's been so long since I last wrote...anything ^.^;

I landed in Seoul a week ago and time has just flown by. The group I'm with has gone on so many city excursions and today classes started. My first class here in Korea was...interesting. It's taught in English, but the professor is Korean. Most of the students are from China with a few Americans, Europeans, and 3 Korean students.



I will try to post more soon, maybe photos from Namsan Tower or Gyeongbokgung?
