Where: Seoul, Anguk Station Exit 1. Keep walking until you pass Changdeokgung palace (you’ll have to walk about 5-10 minutes) until you get to the end of the block, then turn left. It’ll be about a 3 minute walk down the street.


Namsan Tower (North Seoul Tower)

Where: When I’ve went before, we’ve either just walked in the direction of tower until we got to the cable car landing. Or if you head from Myeongdong Station towards the Shinsagae Department Store, and turn left and eventually you come to a free elevator up to the cable car landing, though it can take time. There’s also quite a few shuttles that go there depending on where you are in Seoul.

Palace with Plant

After constant badgering, I finally got my mom to come out and visit me for a short week at the end of July. At the moment, it’s difficult to believe that it’s already been four months since the last time I saw her in person. So much has happened since then. I’ve experienced election woes, decided to sign another contract to stay in Korea, started making plans to go to a wedding in India and to go to Europe next summer.
