Once in a while a day will come along that's just so perfect in so many ways that it fills me with a happiness that lasts for weeks. This was one of those days.

|Lunch with a view (and a strangely coloured Bellini)|
|After lunch we headed to Gyeongbokgung, one of the old Korean palaces, to walk it off. This place has such a magic about it. The grandeur and ornate details of the buildings is fascinating.|
|Catching some rays :)|
|After strolling around the palace we headed to Samcheongdong street (one of the most charming areas of Seoul)|
for a little browse of the cute stores there. And then...some more food, because we hadn't had enough of that already!
|I wanted after dinner coffee at the Hello Kitty Cafe. Yep, they have Hello Kitty shaped sofas in there!|
|We compromised with handmade truffles and iced chocolate in 'Cacao Boom'. I think I still won, they were divine. After this we headed home, tired but full up on love, happiness and a heck of a lot of food! Haha!|
As wonderful as this day was, I'm left with a bittersweet feeling because the time has come to move on. In just two months we won't be in Korea anymore! We'll be saying goodbye to this incredible county, our friends and our beautiful home and moving to Jakarta, Indonesia for the Mr's new job. Of course, we're so excited about moving, ready for the challenges and new experiences it will bring and really eager to get settled into a new life there. But still...Korea has been our home for over four years and it's truly going to be sad to have to say goodbye.
Since an end to our stay here is imminent, we're planning to spend the next few weeks trying to pack in as many sightseeing adventures as possible and final visits to some of our favourite spots. Believe it or not there's still a couple of the touristy sights that we're yet to see here. It's funny, but somehow when you live in a city, you can end up seeing less of those things than you would do if you were just passing through quickly. Anyway, they're on our list and we're going to play tourists so we can say we saw it all.
I know that in the next few weeks I'll also be swamped with moving preperations, (just sorting through the clothes I've accumulated here feels like it could take me until Christmas, I kid you not!) but I'll do my best to keep you updated with our move and blog as often as possible.
If anyone has been to Jakarta, or even better lived/lives there I'd love to hear your tips and recommendations!
