Seolleung and Jeongneung

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.

Looking down at Seoul!

Sometimes taking an elevator just opposite the Starbucks on the corner of downtown Seoul.. and taking a look at Seoul on a sunny day.. well this is the view you get^^20141003_13270620141003_13271120141003_13273720141003_13282020141003_13290820141003_13291620141003_13292120141003_13292520141003_13293720141003_13295520141003_133012

(ADULT MATERIAL) JEJU LOVELAND

The TOP location for people with a good sense of humour and a love of things cheeky, Jeju Love Land. This will give you a whole new picture of how Koreans think and work!

(though maybe the high number of love motels and Kdrama could well be a hint!)

 

Hotel Signiel

Exploring the LotteWorld’s , as it was our Wedding Anniversary we decided to venture across the lake by our home to visit the Hotel that we can see from our window at the top of this massive building.

The staff at the elevator at the base of the tower, were very friendly and helpful. We took the elevator up into the 80s and it took seconds, ear popping and’all.

We arrived on the bar floor with the plan to check out Korea’s heavenly bar on the 81F, Bar81 certainly offers a great selection with some pretty awesome prices.. but in all honesty, I’ve been to the Grand Hyatt and enjoyed their ‘Cloud9‘ bar and the view is just as awesome but the prices are at least logical, 15,000 – 10GBP a sprite, 19,000 a coffee – 12 GBP and as for the drinkies..?

We passed on the drinks and headed to the toilets, automated and plush and then the stairwell view was divine.

After, we headed down to the lounge on the 79F which was certainly stylish and the view amazing.

I took a look at their website and their offers look great, I do wonder why a two person room only comes with a Evian Spa body treatment for one?

Nude at GalleryNSW

Recently, we visited the Nude exhibition at SOMA Museum in Jamsil.

Interestingly, we saw the same exhibition in Sydney (Australia) at ‘The Art Gallery NSW” which was slightly larger.

The exhibition is composed of over 100 major representations of the nude body and has works be the legends such as Picasso, Freud, Matisse and more.
