Hello from Gunsan, Korea!! We are having a blast here with my brother. He’s an awesome tour guide and totally has the language down. He orders like a native and everyone around here seems to know him, so it’s like being with a local celebrity 😉
Despite being jet-legged and having nearly lost my luggage (some American Air Force dude accidentally took my duffle bag from the bus!!), it’s been an amazing adventure so far.
But no rest for the weary … 😉
After 24 solid hours of travel … we arrived and went straight for Korean BBQ, and then to do Korean karaoke ( noraebong) which is awesome here because you have your own private room so you can belt it out and have a blast with no one judging you! 😉
We stayed out til 4 a.m., totally unlike my hubby and I! but my brother’s friends are awesome and we were having so much fun, we just went with it. The soju helped 🙂 (a rice alcohol).
Yesterday we went to this city called Jenjou and went to a temple and a traditional tea house, followed by a traditional Korean dinner where you cook your food in front of you and sit on the floor (shabu shabu). I’m impressed with how healthy Korean food is — or rather, can be … as certainly not everything is healthy!
Today after coffee with my brother and a typical lunch, my hubby and I walked around the city for a few hours before settling at a cafe for a bit. I love life abroad and always have … makes me miss my days of living in Buenos Aires!
Anyway, we’re totally loving it, though the time difference is super-hard to get accustomed to. (We’re prepping for dinner now; it’s 5:15 a.m. East coast time).
I’ll upload pics when we get back of the cool stuff we’re doing and seeing and eating. The food is VERY different than anything I’ve eaten, but as I promised my brother, I’m giving things a try.
Just wanted to say hello! Hope everyone is doing well. 🙂
