I admit, I never really watched this 2016 Korean drama series, except for the times when I would leave the TV on while doing something else. But I always thought something looked familiar.

So after hours of trekking at Seoraksan National Park, and that rather strange dinner we had (click here for the story), it was such a treat to retire to this lovely beach-side resort–Kensington in Sokcho-si.

My third trip to Korea wasn’t just seeing new places, but also revisiting old ones which we didn’t explore as much on the first time (like Songdo on my previous post). One of those is Seoraksan National Park.

Unrecognizable. But in a good way.

Third time’s a charm? I only say so because I failed to achieve my goal of taking higher quality photos on my first 2 visits to Korea. Now I guess I finally got it right on the 3rd time!

AUSTRALIA 2017 (Restaurant Review): Fancy the view at the fancy Sydney Tower Buffet

Travel

It’s almost every person’s goal to travel cheap. While others like to take it hardcore, some can settle for, at least, comfortable. It’s another thing for the privileged who travel lavishly. Some want all things fine, it’s so absurd it’s unforgivable. While others, want just enough.

AUSTRALIA 2017: Hyde Park & St. Mary’s Cathedral Sydney

Travel

It was rush hour when we landed back in Sydney. It was such an amusing site to see people in the airport walking so fast. Maybe they were trying to catch transportation, avoid traffic, or make it to an appointment or something. On the other hand, we had to make it to our dinner reservation at the Sydney Tower Buffet, which I will be talking about on my next post.

AUSTRALIA 2017: Melbourne

People, Travel

The world’s most livable city? I can definitely say so. The culture, all that art and the quirkiness. And have I mentioned the alleys? I have this crazy thing for alleys, and I guess I’ve had enough of them to last me till next year! O Melbourne, you enchant me!

Cebu’s ever-growing love for food and art would be very evident with this new, photogenic landmark that’s about to flood your Instagram and Facebook feeds, not to mention the traffic that would ensue the moment it opens!

When  one thinks of Australia, I’m sure these two are the very first things that will cross your mind. They’re icons, not just of Sydney, but of Australia as a country, which also is a whole continent in itself. Ladies and gents, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Like the DMZ, we also weren’t able to visit Everland in our first trip to Korea. But it seems, we really do get a happy ever after in the end.
