We took off to Seoul for a few days in late March. Seoul is a place close to our hearts with Alex having spent 3 years living there and it being the city where Mino was born and raised it was so good to be back in this crazy, busy, frenetic city! Seoul is a place of contrasts, the old and the new, the modern and the traditional. Home to beautiful palaces and a rich history, Seoul is also a shopping paradise! Check out our “On the streets of Seoul” post for a taste of what people are wearing in Seoul.

The Highlights :

  • Seeing old friends and family!
  • The amazing food. For those of you who still haven’t had your first Korean meal, get to it! Lots of food pics below.
  • The Shopping is out of this world!!
  • The LEON magazine (Japanese) launch party we attended
