[AMSTERDAM] Keukenhof Gardens Part One

With 7 million flower bulbs planted annually, Keukenhof Gardens is the world’s largest flower garden! The sheer amount of photographs I took at Keukenhof is evident of how enthralled and captivated I was by 79 acres of flowers in all colours, shapes and sizes. Open only in mid-March to mid-May, I was so thankful toContinue reading “[AMSTERDAM] Keukenhof Gardens Part One”

SEOUL DIARIES 023: SPRING BLOSSOMS

Come spring and summer, Seoul is just so beautiful. Pictures taken at Dongnimmun Gate. Gorgeously pink, aren’t they?   xoxo, Viktoria Jean

SEOUL DIARIES 021: DONGNIMMUN GATE 독립문

In late 19th Century, the King was many-a-times escorted through Dongnimmun Gate, thereafter to demonstrate personal reception towards visiting Chinese envoys. Dongnimmun is 独立門 in Mandarin, the gate that signifies independence and free will of a country’s people. Built in 1897, the gate served to concretize South Korea’s sovereignty.   Planted aesthetically in areas surrounding the independence gate areContinue reading “SEOUL DIARIES 021: DONGNIMMUN GATE 독립문”

SEOUL DIARIES 020: SIJEONG CITY HALL

Found: fresh fruits at Sijeong’s Yeongchun market! Got myself this box of seasonal strawberries which were so fresh and sweet. The ahjummas at the market even let you taste the strawberries before any payment. I’ve had really good strawberries in Germany earlier this week as well. Good food makes me feel so blessed to beContinue reading “SEOUL DIARIES 020: SIJEONG CITY HALL”

SEOUL DIARIES OO5: HANGANG PARK

March 22, 2014: DAY THREE I picked the perfect day with a gorgeous weather to explore the Yeouido Park! The trail cuts off at an intersection before leading to Yeouido Hangang Park (여의도 한강공원), which faces the Han River. Following this park trail, you can choose to jog along Han River or cross over toContinue reading “SEOUL DIARIES OO5: HANGANG PARK”

SEOUL DIARIES OO4: YEOUIDO PARK

March 22, 2014: DAY THREE Bright and early, I was up and headed for Yeoinaru Subway Station. When I found Yeouido Park (a short walk away), the place was already filled with morning joggers, cycling couples and the brisk-walking elderly! The park is divided into theme-based sections: the Traditional Korean Forest, Grass Square, Culture Square, and Nature’s Ecosystem Forest.Continue reading “SEOUL DIARIES OO4: YEOUIDO PARK”

SEOUL 카운트 다운

구일에서 나는 인천에 도착하는거야. 혼자 여행있으니까 난 흥분과 약간의 긴장. 물론 걱정보다 기쁘다. 카페에서 읽고 서점을 방문하고 한강과 여의도 공원에서 산책, 혼자 여유로운 휴가가있을 것이다. 그리고 우리가 제주를 갈 것! 제주도에 날고 전에, 김포 공항에서 크리스씨를 만날. 오랫동안 제주에 가고 싶었! 여행하기 전에, 나는 한 번 (또는 두 번) 더 항공편을 날아해야! 좀 피곤 해~ 하지만 할 수있다. 항상 할 수있다~ 여행 가자!! ^^Continue reading “SEOUL 카운트 다운”
