    Hi Gina!
    Seriously – how funny that we saw each other at The Holy Grill on Saturday night!!

    Just a couple of notes on your bucket list (which I think is a great idea and something Micah and I have as well – but just not Korea-only related).

    -Good art scene: Insadong of course is the artsy place in Seoul. But I also really liked the area near Hongdae University.
    -Take a cooking class: Emart and Home Plus offer cooking classes…but they are in Korean. But still…was fun to do even though I didn’t understand much.
    -Order food, learn directions: I hope you’ve got the directions thing down by now…it helps SOOOOO much when you are telling the taxi where to go!

  4. […] cheap, and then just some general observations of Japan.  So glad we got to check this one off the Bucket List. […]
