On Friday, a couple of friends and I braved the intermittent rain and went to the Seoul National Cemetery by Dongjak Station.
As promised, here are way too many photos from the gorgeous cherry blossoms on Yongsan.
I had a lovely day out on Sunday with my friend Nopa, a fellow band spouse who has been a most excellent partner in crime over this last year as we discovered new restaurants and interesting sights around Seoul. She’s moving away this week, so this was our last outing together for the foreseeable future. We made a fun day of it and started with lunch at Bao Bar, a fabulous new restaurant in Itaewon.

I thought I was over the whole animal cafe thing here in Seoul, but then I heard about the new meerkat cafe in Hongdae. A chance to play with meerkats? Count me in!
A few weeks ago, Domingos and I went to check out the small but impressive Arario Museum in Space, a contemporary art museum near Anguk Station.
I’ve been meaning to write a sort of “Miscellaneous Korea” post with various photos from the past month, so here I am, trying to have a productive Monday morning. A few weeks ago, Domingos and I walked all over Kyungridan on a Saturday night. This is one of the signs we saw that I enjoyed:
March was a great reading month! I thoroughly enjoyed almost every book I read.
The Dark Days Pact, by Alison Goodman: Even better than the first book in the trilogy!

Great detail, great characters, great action, and an ending that packed an incredible emotional punch. I need the next book! VGR Continue reading “March 2017 Reading Wrap-up”
Yongma Land, a small abandoned and dilapidated amusement park near Mangu Station, has been on my must-visit list for a while. I finally made it there this week, and it was worth the wait! Continue reading “Yongma Land”
After Nami Island, the shuttle bus took us to Petite France, a teensy amusement park that is supposed to be a sort of French village slash homage to Le Petite Prince. It was cute, but there’s not a whole lot to it.
On a sunny but cold Monday, Mom and I took a shuttle bus to Nami Island and Petite France. It was great to go back to Nami Island with my mom, and we were lucky to find the place fairly uncrowded. We wanted to take the zip line instead of the ferry, but it was just too cold and we didn’t think it would be worth it.
