As the new year dawns for Jews, that means my birthday looms. I decided to take a detour on the way home and treated myself to a quiet but fulling meal at 소이로움(SOIROUM) a vegan restaurant/cafe which is only a short throw from the center of Seoul.
Very easy to find:
It took me nearly six years to be in the right place and the right weather to finally explore the memorial park in the heart of Gangnam, known as Seolleung and Jeongneung.
A UNESCO site that houses the Royal Tomb of King Seongjong and Queen Jeonghyeon (Seolleung) and The Royal Tomb of King Jungjong (Jeongneung).
The site is not only the Royal Tomb but a home to a lot of nature waiting to say ‘hi!’
Please visit this site at the heart of Gangnam, it costs only 1000W.

Explore Busan Museum of Art in 2015, a walk down memory lane because art is beautiful whatever date!
SEMA (Seoul Museum of Art) always offers a variety of awesome exhibitions, I was especially impressed with the work of the late Chun Kyung-Ja’s work and equally I suggest art lovers explore all of the SEMA locations in Seoul and even given their gallery in Nown-Gu a look over.
Take a look at some articles about:

As a Brummie, I love this gallery and it’s cafe, a treat combined. The exhibitions are always unique and sometimes you leave impressed and sometimes not so much!
I love their coffee shop, I went there just before getting married and after numerous ‘pre-bus’ rides home after work and equally during my time as a student at The University of Birmingham.,
This gallery inspires the mind, Brindleyplace equally offers a safe place to release the mind and to think.

Check out their impressive blog as I do frequently or just go shopping!
There is something magical about Stratford-upon-Avon, a market town with more than 800 years of history, adorable buildings, a lively town and one with some many blessings and worthy of a visit.
With so much to visit, I offer you a few snaps from my afternoon walking along very familiar territory for me, a Brit.
Find yourself in Manchester and a little hungry, I suggest swinging by ‘Noshers‘.
