I lost my soul in Seoul

The first few words that came across my mind when I think of South Korea are Psy, Gangnam Style or Winter Sonata, the most romantic drama series which I've ever seen besides Sanay Wala Nang Wakas. Seoul which is very rich of its culture, history, architecture, food and not to forget K-Pop have been sort of my inspiration to come here.

I told my parents that I'm going to Seoul two weeks before my flight, they were rather surprised. The thought of snowboarding and to unwind was something that I was looking forward though I'm in the midst of peak period of audit. Fast forward, on the 20th February 2013, Thaqif Roslim, Mimie Karim, Naqyah Roslim and I touched down at Incheon International Airport.

I'm not writing that much but here are some of the pictures (sorry again not in chronological orders) that I have taken during my trip.

Sunset at Itaeown

If in England, football can be called as a religion, in South Korea, it's Psy

Temporarily frozen

A frozen swimming pool and two dinosaurs


The magnificent view at Jisan Forest Ski Resort. They are like dancers.

The siblings

At Bukchon Hanok Village. Members of the  royal family and noblemen lived here during the Joseon Period.

This is a street of Korean traditional culture with antique art and book shops, traditional houses and craft shops. Insa-dong Street.
