South Korea Vacation

From March 21 to 24 of this year, Celine, Mama Chelle, Mitch, Wayne, Jerome, and I went to South Korea for a very short vacation. This blog post summarizes the highlights of our trip. I plan to blog more about the specific days and the places we visited, soon.

We arrived there evening of March 21, took the train and went to Namsan Guest House to check-in. We had dinner in a nearby barbecue restaurant. On our third day, we went to Nami Island for a day trip and took a lot of photos. In the evening, we went to Gangnam and meet some of the Google Developer Group (GDG) managers from South Korea. We had dinner at a Samgyupsal place nearby. After dinner, we also bought some food to bring to friends in the Philippines.

On our last day (March 24), we went back to Gangnam, visited the Google Seoul office and had lunch/meeting with the Google Developer Relations Manager Soonson Kwon, and prepared our stuff to go to the airport.

It's a pretty short trip but we enjoyed our stay there. We visited different palaces, temples and other historical/cultural places there. There are still a lot that we haven't visited though. I wish we could go back there in the near future.
