10 Days Seoul & Jeju Itinerary 2013

So I’m back from my Seoul & Jeju escapade! ~sad sniff~

It was a really fun & exciting trip for me, albeit a lil nerve wrecking since this was the first free & easy trip where I mostly took charge of planning the itinerary & booking the accommodations etc. I went with one of my gal pals from high school and it was sorta impromptu in the sense that we just decided to go for a holiday together one day, she suggested Korea, I said OK. And off we went to book our air tickets! We had about 3-4months to plan so I scoured the internet as best as I could (in between my already busy schedule) for information and there was just so much info available it was mind blowing! lol

It turned out to be an amazing free & easy trip and although we had an itinerary planned, we had the freedom of making some minor changes here and there to better suit us during the trip itself. I am guilty of not taking enough photos on my camera (most of them are on my phone cos its so much easier to just whip out the phone from my pocket instead of digging through my handbag for the camera). Plus I wanted to enjoy the moment while I was there, rather than get too obsessed with taking too many photos. Nevertheless, I will try to come up with a decent day by day post on the trip (hopefully~) 😛
