2nd Day in Seoul: We woke up early on our second day in Seoul, eager to get the day started due to the fact that we had to hop back onto the subway at 2:30pm in order to catch our flight back to the US.

1st Day in Seoul: We had a mission in Seoul to seek out delicious Korean food and discover the loads of goods within the shopping markets of South Korea’s largest city.
On our return flight home, we opted for a long 22 hour layover in South Korea so that we can enjoy one last mini trip abroad before our vacation was over. Upon our arrival once again in Incheon airport, Stace and I grabbed a map and directions from the tourist information counter in the airport (which is very helpful when traveling in Korea) Continue reading
This is not an understatement, it is a hard fact.
Singapore is a beautiful modern city. Being a part of Asia and so close to its neighboring counterparts of Indonesia, China, Thailand, Philippines, India, Japan, Korean, and so on everything was authentic Asian food. It’s huge Asian melting pot has created bursting flavors and creative desserts and snacks. Locals of Singapore are also very detailed when it comes to their food. They know they have the best and they will tell you how to eat it, where to go, and what exactly to get. Since we only had a day and a half to experience Singapore, we went straight to it’s major monuments and favorite food plazas.

The first we tried was Sup Tulang, a dish from India consisting of bone marrow soaked in a curry-like soup that you ate with your bread. Afterwards, we sampled a view pastries here and there before taking a stroll to another part of town. We passed through Bassorah Street, a beautiful strip headed in the direction of a Mosque that is lined with quaint little cafes and shops – it deserves a post of its own since it was probably my favorite scenes of Singapore.
