Sneak Peek: Seoul

With a 12 hour layover in Seoul while enroute to Seattle, I was able to escape the airport for a few hours to see a few of the sights around Seoul:

The Cheonggyecheon Stream through downtown Seoul

Gyeongbokgung Palace grounds

The Palace guards (he obviously liked me trying to stand really close to him)

and zooming in on his face

Monkey and Me (my chinese zodiac symbol)

Insadong (popular tourist street for souvenir shopping)


  1. Glad you escaped the airport for a few hours. See you soon! I can't wait to hear in person about all your adventures so far! Love you bunches!

  2. Crystal, give me a call if you have time to get together this week. I would love to chat and hear all your stories.

  3. You are so cute! Love you posing with the guards! Do you have a phone with you? If so CALL ME when you are back in the US! I want to catch up with you since I can never get you on Skype :( Call anytime!

  4. I am just sick I didn't come meet you when I was in Thailand. Its only an hour away :( I too had a 12 hour layover in Seoul on my way back to the the states. I opted for the Hyatt to nap, have lunch and the spa. Your adventures look so fun!!

  5. I love your updates! I can't believe how much of of Asia are you getting to experience. I'm so jealous of this adventure that you're on.

  6. That's a nice way to spend a layover!
    Lisa's comment made my LOL, but I am not surprised, ha!
