See: article on black pork. Special thanks to Elise for the last minute restaurant recommendation!
Tips @ICN (the airport):
-The bookstores sell stamps for cash, and if you need to mail something the info booths will mail it for you.
-No high flyin’ lounge pass but need a break (or a children’s playground, or space to feed your baby)? Follow the signs to Rest & Relax upstairs! You won’t regret it.
Are you feeling some post-vacation blues?
I saw this well-timed article from Refinery29 on How To Deal With The Post-Vacation Blues. Despite my irritation with slide shows in online articles, I read through it. Pretty validating to see that I’ve done quite a few of them, like exercising, and trying (trying) to get back on a normal sleep schedule.
What do you do, post-vacation, to get back in the groove?

Bucket List for Next time in Seoul (some day..):
Shop @ Dongdaemun to start with, maybe get a cutting edge jacket
Spa day at Dragon Hill Spa
Go for a tea tasting and drink tons more tea
Visit the fish market on the first day in town (you’ll be jetlagged anyway), early in the morning.
Eat more food: bbq beef, hoddeok, random street food
Buy Seoul subway souvenirs
Fun and random tips for travelers to Seoul:
To be polite, give and receive money with both hands (or touch one arm as you extend the other).
If you go shopping for women’s clothes, they might give you a little piece of tissue paper. It’s for your filthy face! Use it to protect the clothes you try on from getting make up on it.
Is there more you were hoping to hear about my adventures in Seoul?
