Day 9: went to FC Seoul vs Busan! It was pretty fun. The first half was deathly boring and to make it worst Busan scored. BUT the second half got going and FC Seoul made a come-back with 2 goals. I’ve yet to attend a game that we lost. I’m good luck like that! Final score 2-1 FC Seoul!
Day 3: Happy Chuseok!! Today lots of things were closed due to the holiday but one place that wasn’t close was EVERLAND!! So we took the subway to Gangnam Station on line 2 then we took bus number 5002 to Everland. On the way there the bus was standing room only. At the bus stop we took a free shuttle to EVERLAND. At first Everland pissed us off because the ticket booth lady was an idiot and when Chad tried to buy tickets she was just not getting it. He even said it in Korean. So Chad and I got super discounts, Kyle and Jamie got the foreigner discount and mom had to pay full price, because I guess she looks Korean…. Yeah ticket booth lady=stupid.
Once inside the place was great! Really crowded with all the other Asians in Korea besides Koreans. It was the Halloween Festival so everything was themed Halloween, which was amazing!! Then we went to this area that had birds you can feed, I’m terrified of birds but I tried it out.
Then was so much to do and see. In Everland, you have rides, a zoo and shows. Here are some highlights.
Day 1: Today we took Mama to Korean class with us in Gangnam. She really enjoyed it and got to meet our CLS friends. Afterwards we took the bus to COEX mall and of all things ate at On The Border. We roamed around the mall and then went to the COEX Aquarium. It was fun going there again and because it was in the evening (around 5pm) we gt in at a discounted price. We took Mama to galbi in Anam-dong and chai tea at Saru our favorite Indian/Nepalese resturant. Overall a great day. I’m so glad Mama is here.
So next Friday my mama is coming to visit Seoul!! I’m SO excited and I want to show her everything!!!! But I haven’t even seen everything or even half of the things to see and do in Seoul. To those that currently or have lived/visited Seoul what was your favorite place? And where should we take Mama?
And here is a random picture to get the mind working…
