Toto’s Nostalgia Museum and Giftshop ♥ 토토의오래된물건

For tourists, the area of Insadong in Seoul is a wonderful place to visit for a view of the cultural aspects of Korea.  Places to dress in hanbok, souvenirs, street performers dancing to 강강술래, and hidden traditional tea houses that make homemade 수정과 punch!

Cafe Mom’s Cookie 커피 맘스쿠키 ~ Korean Cookie Deco Date!

Halloween at Everland

 

Did you know that the theme parks in Korea celebrate Halloween now? Yes!!  This Holiday is still a bit new and foreign for most Koreans, but the younger generation has started to take a liking to it for sure. While it is not quite as popular as it is next door in Japan~ slowly, but surely more festivities are being embraced by the public and not just the expat community here♥


Charlie Brown Theme Cafe’s in Korea + Incheon Airport Location Visit!

Aside from the Hello Kitty cafes here in Korea, another popular request for me to visit was one of the several Charlie Brown theme cafes!  That’s right, Korea also has as some official Snoopy cafes!  Sadly though… I seem to have put it off a bit too long!! T_T   We had a large one right by my house in Sillim and I kept saying “next time” for over a year… till this summer when I walked by and was shocked to find the cafe was gone!  Replaced with an Iceberry cafe!!
