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.

The Busan Museum of Art
This gallery is one of the ‘most see’ locations in Busan. I will be coming back with more images and ideas for trips to Busan – I highly recommend this gallery!
Is Deoksugung Palace which is located right next to the City Hall and main Lotte Department Store in the heart of Seoul, this location is very romantic and should be visited during the day or for a romantic evening stroll (at night), it is open some evenings!
I have pictures from the evening on this blog – so please check it out!
Some snaps during the day
Seodaemun Prison History Museum (서대문형무소역사관)
Visiting a prison doesn’t normally hit high on my agenda, I visited the Seodaemun Prison and felt history in a very different way. This prison is where the Japanese tortured and executed Korean freedom fighters. I went there and felt more connected to Korea, a place that I call my second home. I felt the fear, the ghosts of the past and history itself.
You can explore the prison and realize the pain and hate this place once held, now it stands to remind us of the past and sits aside an ever-blossoming Seoul City and a symbol that Korea has risen.
