During my short stay in Fukuoka, I didn’t thought of joining any tours because I was on a low budget and rather spend my time sightseeing/walking around the city. But who can say no to a free tour with free beers?? no matter how packed your schedule is, a visit to the Asahi Beer Hakata Brewery is a must!
We live in Seoul for more than four years now and the only place we have been together outside Seoul is Busan. During this Christmas holiday we thought of going to Busan again, because I like it, but we decided last minute to stay closeby Seoul and make a day trip out of it. The first city that came up in my mind is the Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon. It was high on my list and it was time to finally spend a day in the capital of the province Gyeonggi-do.
Forget about cat cafe, because there’s something so much cooler out there! An owl cafe! As crazy as it may sounds, there is a real owl cafe in Fukuoka and I stumbled there by accident, not knowing about its existence beforehand. I have been to cat cafe and dog cafe many times in Seoul, but an owl cafe… Never thought I would come across one so I had to go inside no matter what. Luckily they had a spot left (last one of the day!) and after waiting 45 minutes, I was inside!
One Summer day we walked pass Grevin Seoul museum and promised each other that we will visit this museum someday soon. Summer passed and we’re now almost hitting Winter. We totally forgot about Grevin until I saw a contest online where you can win tickets to the museum. And I won two tickets for this famous wax museum from Paris for the Halloween Zombie Night tour! In the spirit of Halloween, we went dressed to the museum (and because we were hitting Itaewon afterwards…) and scared the staff who supposed to scare visitors 🙂
One of the cities on Shaun’s must-visit list is Paris. Since I’ve never been to France, we took the opportunity during our Europe trip to visit the City of Love! Of course you can’t skip the Eiffel Tower when visiting Paris. Was it worth it? Yes!
For my trip to Fukuoka I needed to sleep somewhere close to Incheon airport as my flight departs early in the morning. The first bus/subway from where I live (the other side of Seoul) would still not work out, so I searched the internet for the cheapest, but unique, option. Luckily I found Air Buddy Guesthouse!
