finally, last day of our long year-end trip!
we had a full day itinerary plan and all of us were showing tiny signs of fatigue by then but we did great this day too!
out the whole day and managed to do quite a fair bit of stuff!
we moved out of hotel after having breakfast there and took the subway to gyeongbokgung station (2 stops away).
having fun at the station
can you see the younger boy crying at the bottom right photo? I cant remember why but apparently the elder son thought its funny and I have this very zzz look...
first stop of the day was to tosokchon for its samgyetang of cos! personally, I still feel here serves the best samgyetang in seoul. yummmm. though the seafood pancake here is not really good.
we polished up the food easily
after our early lunch, we made our way to insadong. last year when we were here, we reached in the evening and this time round, i found the place much more interesting in the day.
and the hotteoks sold here are really the best in seoul. and random stalls serve much better ones than those frozen lots in myeondong.
gosh, i can eat 3 of them at 1 go by myself!
I had 4 free alive museum tickets courtesy of my coll who came to seoul in oct! :)
so we went to the branch at insadong and as with such museums like trickeye, we had a ball of a time taking silly photos!
here are some of them:
we left the museum and headed for samcheongdong. surprisingly, we realized its just a manageable walk from insadong with the help of a map.
and so im back in my fav. area in the whole of seoul - samcheongdong is so pretty and chill. absolutely lovely!
the husband and boys were tired in the late afternoon so they zonked out at cafe bene while I continued to shop around the region.
and so we ended the day with dinner at my fav. bbq place - maple tree house!
the unmarinated sirloin is totally yumssss!
spending a lovely time at samcheongdong
we took a cab back to the hotel after dinner and i spent the rest of evening packing the luggage. the boys were so tired that they were fast asleep by 9+ pm! :P
and hubbi and i didn't fare any better.. we hit the sack by 11pm for we have to wake up before 6am tomorrow to make our way to the airport for our 9am flight!
it has been such a lovely trip and the boys proved that they are more than capable to do long holidays and seems like they enjoyed most aspects of it.
even a simple cafe stop delights them and that is how I want them to see travel as - experiencing and seeing the new in everything.
