사진-988-Free-Crop-tm The coming months I’m gonna travel a lot so I thought it would be nice to share the destinations I’m gonna visit with you all. It’s like a preview of the places I’ll write about the coming time. I know that some people don’t really care about travel articles and only follow my blog because of make-up reviews or other beauty related articles.

Men’s Monday – Seoraksan National Park

Seoraksan National Park misty mountains
One of my biggest passions and enjoyments in life is being outside in nature. After booking my tickets to Korea to visit Elise, naturally I started to look for things to see in Korea. Instantly my attention was taken to the Seoraksan National Park, which is the most famous national park in South Korea. If you enjoy nature and hiking and you are visiting Korea, the Seoraksan National Park is a must see. The park offers a number of different hiking routes over ridges and through valleys, offering breathtaking views of the mist covered jagged mountain peaks.

#Personal – surviving in spice world

SAMSUNG I don’t have that much to write about in this #personal post as I just posted a (delayed) #personal post a few days (like two) ago.

[re-written] Fushimi Inari Shrine Kyoto

Cute Japanese kids Fushimi InariIf you have seen the movie ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’  you have probably seen the scene in which the leading actress is still a little girl and runs through a tunnel of torii gates, which can be best described as ‘orange poles’. This scene takes place at the Fushimi Inari Shinto Shrine, a magical place in Kyoto. I would say it’s a must-see when visiting Japans former imperial capital.

Bukchon Hanok Village Seoul

hanok street group Bukchon Hanok Village is a traditional Korean village located in the heart of Seoul in between Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace and Jongmyo shrine. When walking through the small streets and seeing the beautifully designed old houses, you would almost feel like your no longer in the largest city of South Korea. My Korean buddy Jerry (a volunteer that has to put up with this overly direct Dutch person, as he was assigned as my buddy through a school program) and other buddy friends of him took me and another international student here a few days ago.
