Our hostess welcomed us with homemade food. Can you believe that?? It was about midnight and she waited for us and gave us food! I wanted to hug her!
Once our stomachs were full we went into our tiny room and unpacked our heavy suitcases. Then, we went to bed.
The next day, we decided to do something cultural for a change and headed to the Gyeongbokgung Palace.
We were so lucky we arrived just on time for the guard change! Everything was so colorful! And the contrast between the old and the new was so intense. I loved it!
So, not only the weather was perfect (chilly but sunny), we saw the guard change and in top of that there was a free tour in English about to start! Here there are some pics we took while we were waiting for everybody to gather for the tour.
And so it began! Our guide took us around the enormous palace and told us about the history of the place. Every single building was stunning!
I regret not having taken more detail photos. Look at these vibrant colors.
When the tour finished we decided to explore the place on our own and we found out we could access the National Folk Museum of Korea for free and, of course, there we went.
We weren't allowed to take pics inside the museum but I had fun taking selfies with these animal statues.
Here I am with the tiger because I am a fire tiger ;)
And I had to take a pic with the cute bunny.
I noticed I used too many "!!!" in this post but just by remembering my time in Seoul I can't help smiling. Everything was perfect!
I'll tell you more about my adventures in Korea in my next post.
Thanks for reading!
