Greetings from Seoul, Korea

This is my third day in Seoul -- we leave tomorrow -- and I'm enjoying the visit a lot. I felt like I did a lot of running around in Japan and I'm taking the pace slower in Seoul. I'm doing a lot of walking -- after two rainy days the weather is beautiful -- some shopping and trying out a few of the infinite number of places to drink coffee. My big treat for the trip is a massage later this afternoon. I did some research before I got here and the place that looked great online looked even more luxurious in person. 

I did do some serious sightseeing and one of my stops was the Chogyesa Buddhist Temple. The bright colored papers are prayer requests. 



Tomorrow afternoon I fly back to New York, via a quick stop in San Francisco. For my next blog post I'm back at my computer, looking at my living room, not the street in Seoul. I'm looking forward to everything familiar, but I know I'll miss seeing new sights. I've got some blog posts in mind for the coming weeks, so we'll still be spending time in Japan and Korea.

As ever, thanks for visiting and for joining me on my travels. Take good care and have a terrific Tuesday!

The Chogyesa Buddhist Temple with the bright colored prayer requests is fascinating. Looks like you've had a wonderful time. Have a safe flight home.

I hope your massage was as luxurious as the establishment.

Eventually all good things come to an end, but when the vacation is over, there is nothing better than sleeping in your own bed.
