One of my favorite places to go in Seoul on a nice day is Sky Rose Garden (하늘 로즈 가든). Admittedly, it’s unbearable on a very hot, very cold, or rainy day. Yet, if the weather cooperates, this roof top rose garden is magical.

Oh, Ryan Teacha. You constantly change your tumblr name and you’re so bad at meeting up, but I do enjoy our sporadic chats.

Here’s a haiku for you.


Busan to Seoul via bicycle

I am looking to bicycle to Seoul from Busan over Chuseok but am wondering about the condition of the bike paths on the 4-Major River Project that the previous president initiated. Specifically, are any of them paved? Most of them? I'm asking because I only have a road bike (8-speed, thin tires, aka. NOT a mountain/trail bike). Anyone know enough to say whether I'd be able to tackle it or do I have to look at getting another bike. If it's the latter I'm not going to do and will just have to wait until a more opportune time arises. Anyway, any advice much obliged. Thanks.


Tricky Trip to the Trick Eye Museum

Summer holidays are here and the temperatures are climbing up! Thankfully, there are so many cool ways to keep the kids engaged in Seoul. Hongdae, where the student crowd of the Hongik University gather, is a hep and happening place with all the pubs, bars and awesome shopping all around and houses the Trick Eye Museum, which creates fun effects by optical illusion!

Cool it off in Seoul! (The Ice Gallery)


The Ice Gallery is a cool little place tucked quietly off a quaint street close to the Anguk station. Perfect for little kids on a hot summer day, this place is a mini refrigerator maintained at a bone chilling 5 degrees below zero for retaining the ice sculptures. It has the typical rooms as in a home all made in ice- kitchen, bed room, a study room with computer, even a bar and bathroom with an ice potty! It also has a few famous Korean structures too. It also has an ice sculpture of the leaning tower of Pisa, Eiffel tower and the Statue of Liberty. All the things to touch and feel, an igloo to go and huddle into and a tiny slide makes it a perfect place for the kids!


MinHwa Art- Korean Folk Paintings


Paintings in India are generally done on the walls of Temples which tells stories about the Gods and their ways of expunging evil. In the Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai, India, in the Meenakshi Amman shrine,  the walls are adorned with the depiction of Goddess Meenakshi from her birth, growing up to be a mighty ruler, her conquests and the story of her wedding with Lord Sundareshwarar. In the Lord's Shrine, there are amazing paintings of the Thiruvilaiyadal (God's games with the common people) by which he delivers them from evil.

May I have this silent dance? *Korea Silent Disco*



Hongdae, one of my favorite neighborhoods in Seoul, Korea, is known for being loud and full of music. Every night you can count on the area’s public spaces to be full of spontaneous and talented performers and one can not ignore the deafening beats blaring from the many clubs that line Hongdae’s narrow streets. But one random night each month is reserved for a different kind of party.
