Once we hit Seoul the city was thriving. Getting into the metro was like cramming ants onto a needle point!
Finally at the hostel, conveniently located on top of a coffee shop we could relax
It was freezing, snowing in fact, in Seoul and all we had was layers and a hoodie, everyone else was in puffa jackets (very trendy in Asia) and hats, scarfs and gloves! Tomorrow we would find a coat!
We headed to a nearby flea market to try our hand at haggling and find ourselves some coats to last us through China as well. Ellie got a lovely green number and Emily a dashing navy blue!
South Korean food is all very meaty so we struggled here for things to eat, they don't seem to understand "We don't eat meat".
We just relaxed in South Korea, it was only ever going to be a stop over point and a trip to see Debs, and after racing through Japan we needed a bit of a break.
On our third night in South Korea (our last night) we headed to Incheon where Debs lives. She kindly put us up for the night and it was lovely to see her and Alex. We headed out for some local food, extremely spicy soup and sushi, then onto a couple of bars. Luckily Debs knew where to take us as in South Korea the build upwards and most of the best places are situated around the 5th floor on buildings where you wouldn't expect a bar to be
It was really nice to see Debs, finally a familiar face who we could speak English to. Thanks for having us Debs!!!
After relaxing in South Korea we are now ready for our long ferry journey to Waihei China!
