Hanbok of my dreams, so modern!

Hanbok of my dreams, so modern!

Such an abundance of cute stores and restaurants with evolving neighborhoods in Seoul. My favorite areas to explore were Hannamdong, Itaewon, and Hanok Village as they had the most character and energy. It's incredible how these neighborhoods feel modern, yet keeps its tradition and history. Although I feel like I haven't talked about all the shopping here as well (all the beauty products I've stocked up on!), there was plenty of that, too. Hopefully I'll touch base on that another time ;)
