French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

No risk, no fun (taste of Seoul)

The great thing about traveling is that you are constantly surprised and challenged by all the cultural differences. Fashion, food, manners… It’s all relative ! Forget about what you think should be right, keep your eyes and your mind open, there is always something to learn 😉

    Wow, when you say different, you really mean different!! This is a very funny post, I like your style!

      thanks a lot 🙂 All those little funky things that make traveling fun for us (and a hell for others ;). Although I must admit that Korean food was a challenge to me, as it is mostly meat and seafood. Plus ramen tend to bore me after 2 lunches and 2 diners in a row…That’s what you get when you are a boring vegetarian and on top of that you are not really into mushrooms and beans… But their honey bread, the one without the beans, is mouthwatering (so cold anyway that I really needed those calories!)…

        LOL, I can imagine. I don’t think I’d survive being a vegetarian!! 😉

      Thanks a lot 🙂 We really had fun, every single day, and the weather was pretty kind with us. We even went skying yesterday, what a city! so kids friendly and quiet and classy. Except the food, we had a great time (I think only THailand really cares for lame vegetarians like me ; )

    I smiled the whole was through these pics!!!! Thanks for posting these… And I’ve got to admit I’d choose the crying “super spicy” but I might pass on the dried octopus:)
    Have a glorious day!!!!❤️❤️

      I actually thought of you when I took this pict!!! 😀 You have to taste their stuff, there are quite lots of options if you are “normal” as the hubby would say ( = eating basically everything). I shamelessly had … panini and quiches yesterday and today, the first time it ever happened to me in a trip. Says a lot of my state of starvation. Too bad the eggplant parmigiana I saw our the street was just a mirage 😛

        Oh I’m honored you thought of me and my spice addiction!!
        Lol about eating “normal”… I can understand about the panini and quiche !!
        And sorry my Eggplant Parm was only a mirage! How many days would it take if I sent you a package full?
        Have a lovely rest of your day/trip!!!!!

    Looks like a great adventure. My cousins area half Korean and when we visit, we get REAL kimchee.

      So you had the chance to visit Korea or are they living in the States too? Real Kimchee is indeed nothing to compare with what I used to have back in Europe. Korean really know the meaning of spicy 😛

        Never been to Korea. My cousins did live there for a couple of years when they were young. Kimchee is indeed very spicy anywhere I eat it 🙂
