Other than Japan, Korea is the most developed country in Asia. These two countries are always in my wish-to-travel list. Luck was on us when my husband's company chose Seoul, Korea and Guang Chou, China as this year staff outing itinerary options. Since We have been to Guang Chou, China in 2007 when we visiting Hong Kong, so we decided on Seoul, Korea.
For the past few years, myself, April and May had been tagging along my husband's company staff outing to countries like, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Every country has a unique culture or common heritage, joint experience, and shared learning that produce its culture. I want to thank my husband for giving us a chance to recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life.
Traveling to a more developed country, increases our knowledge and widens our perspective, especially Korea has the best technology in Asia. We were able to view new customs, and different ways of living. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. My husband has started to take good care of his skin with the new skin care range that was bought in Korea.
When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, take lots of picture, and share nice stories to people afterwards. I don't intend to show off and make people jealous. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
Here I would like to pen down the new food that we got to try in Korea.
Right: Other than kimchi, it is still kimchi.
Ginseng soup with rice stuffed inside the chicken.
Frankly, I tasted the kimchi on the first day, and I dare not taking it on the second day onwards. My girls were worse, they couldn't even smell the kimchi. We are certainly not a fan of Korean cuisine. You can tell from April's expression when forcing to finish her breakfast.
Basically, Korean food is quite healhty. Every meal also includes plenty of grains, legumes and vegetables, most indispensably in the form of kimchi—robustly flavored, fermented vegetables. Kimchi is actually tastier when putting in soup.
p/s: My tour guide is 41 years old. SK got it right.
