Well today was our last day in Seoul, and let me tell you… we all had such a wonderful time.
We have made so many memories that will never be forgotten.
Seoul is an amazing city with so much to offer.
In the morning we headed down for breakfast where we would have our last meal at the Ritz.
Breakfast was great, so no surprise.
I had: orange juice, fried rice, pineapple, and salmon.
After breakfast we took a family photo.
Before we took off for Daegu we had one last thing to do.
We needed to see the secret garden at the Changdeokgung palace!
There were quite a few people on the tour but that never stopped us before.
It was so beautiful.
Our tour guide wore a beautiful dress and we all felt bad because it was such a warm day and we knew she had to be extremely hot.
After we were finished with the tour, the tour guide told us that we had the option to climb up 70 steps or to just go back the same way we came in.
If you guessed going up the 70 steps you would be…
Sorry to disappoint but we were all pretty tired and sweaty.
I, of course, went straight to the sweets because well.. when in Korea.
I ended up getting my favorite pastry of all time..
I noticed that they had a popcorn shop in the market and get this..
It was Garrett’s popcorn!
After we got what we needed we headed back to the hotel to collect our bags.
The car was packed full and we decided that only four of us could fit in the car.
Grandpa, grandma, my mother, and I said that we did not mind riding in the car. So it was settled.
We took off!
Our driver stopped at a little road stop… better known as a “rest stop” in the states.
It was really neat! It even had a full grocery store.
Sorry to bring up my obsessions with bathrooms again but it was pretty interesting in there.
After we dropped off our bags we headed over to Eunju’s parents place to see everyone and have dinner.
Before we headed upstairs, I got the privilege to take a photo with the driver.
“Welcome to Daegu”
we all laughed and took our shot.
yes, I actually took the shot this time
After dinner we headed back to Eunju’s sisters apartment (that is where we are staying) and decided to call it a night.
Can’t wait to tell you about our next adventure!
Oh oh oh! I almost forgot to tell you…
My mom found diet coke. You could only imagine the excitement in her eyes.
If you can’t… here’s a photo:
