After flying through the night, we were super excited and anxious to explore as much as possible during our 18 hours in Korea. We looked like total tourists as we were not dressed appropriately as we still were living the "island life" and it was chilly weather and somewhat similar to Seattle this time of year. Except there was LOTS of sun :)
Taking public transportation, the bus, from Incheon Airport into Seoul
We made it to the streets of Seoul
It was a gorgeous day

National Palace and Cultural Museum
I tried to tell this young gal that I went to college at SMU, but she didn't speak a bit of English ... so I settled for a photo together instead :)
and this was the potty in the women's restroom ...
Felt right at home in Korea with a Texas bar - made me smile
Next stop ... food! And we ended up at a packed local spot with locals for Korean BBQ. It was an experience of a lifetime, as we were clueless on how to order when no one spoke English. If only someone recorded us attempting to communicate .... hilarious!
Priceless face - We weren't sure what anything was!!!!
We just loved it - Cool temps in the 50's and we were dressed for summer.
Then we headed to the Namdaemun Market ... which was one of the craziest and most wild experiences of my life. We heard it was an absolute MUST see if we were in the city, and let's just say I was overwhelmed instantly.
We are so glad we got to see the city and would love to come back when we have more time. We were surprisingly able to see a lot during our visit and would love to come back again as it was too quick.
After Korea ... we made it back HOME!!!
Being back in America never felt so good.
