View from my KTX train yesterday

I love traveling by train. I went to Gumi yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed the train rides back and forth. Here’s a little bit of the view that I’d like to share with you.


And here are some photos I took on the way and in Gumi.

Time-lapse video of an intersection at night in Seoul


Here’s a short video I made a few days ago of an intersection in Seodaemun-gu in Seoul, South Korea. I thought it was interesting how so many cars were still on the road at such a late hour so I made this time-lapse video. Hope you enjoy watching it! Thank you!

“Roy The Cook” – My new favorite pasta place in Seoul

Today, as we often do on the weekend, my wife and I headed out to Hongdae for our first meal of the day … around 3 PM. I kind of felt like trying a new restaurant, and Mikyung suggested going to this pasta place that she had been to, just yesterday. I had seen the restaurant before while passing by, so I was curious too.

The weather was beautiful today, and this is a picture I took from the table we sat at – very pretty, right? It’s a small restaurant, but both the owner (the cook) and the waitress are very nice and the food is great.

This is what I had. It was 16,000 won. I loved it. (Sorry, forgot the name.)

And this is what Mikyung had. I think it was 15,000 won or less. It was very very good, too!

And the waitress recognized Mikyung from her visit yesterday, and offered us a free tiramisu to thank her for her second visit, which was very nice of her.

If you want to check out the restaurant yourself, here’s the restaurant’s foursquare info:

The Wedding of Susan & Matt Lee – via @hdefined

I know from my own experience that getting married is a wonderful thing. My friend Matt Lee recently got married and it’s too bad that I couldn’t be there to see his wedding in person. They are enjoying their honeymoon now and in the meanwhile, here’s a video that Michael made at the wedding. Such a cheerful and happy couple (and video)! : )
