First holiday with the best friends!

So last month, I travelled with the friends I've known for the longest to Seoul, Korea! So we have known each other since we were in secondary school, that is a crazy 13 years!! I had wanted to write 12 years but I have Zonia sitting by my side now, telling me i'm turning 26 in a month's time. Feeling really low now HAHA!

There were so many firsts in this trip! 

First time travelling with all my best friends and our partners
First time seeing cherry blossoms for the first time
First time waking up at 4am to catch the sunrise at Seungsan Peak
First time visiting Jeju
First time living at an airbnb loft
and there's so much more! 

So I've so many photos from the trip, 1 blog post is not enough! So i'm splitting them up into a few posts! (:

selfies with the best friend!

Jjimjilbang  is a public bathhouse in Korea, furnished with hot tubs, showers, Korean traditional kiln saunas and massage tables. Jjimjil is derived from the words meaning heating. We felt so warm after a Jjimjilbang session and ready to hit the streets again!

Dinner at Wangbijin! Pris found this korean bbq place for us and thankfully, we were there early cause the queue formed right after we got in! It's so good and the guys were rating our meals throughout the trip. We were in Korea for 8 days and this was rated Number 1! It was really good.
