Again, sorry I haven't been posting! I'm trying to update much as possible now, I' actually determined! So I went to downtown with my friend Jess and we went to get icecream at Penny because we heard such great things about it.
On our way back home to California we had a layover in Hawaii. Lucky for us we had a full day in Hawaii, it was a 21hr layover. So we booked a hotel, about 100$ for one night. It wasn't bad because Kelly & I just split the bill. Since we didn't have much time we decided to just relax at Waikiki Beach, only a 2 minute walk from our hotel. We ended up just sleeping at the beach because we were so exhausted. My friend Monet also happened to stay in Hawaii that day and her hotel was only about 5 minutes away from ours. So we met up for desert and her mom was able to drive us there. It was a short but sweet trip, and I would definitely want to go back and explore more of the private beaches of Hawaii.
Our last week we spent most of our time re-visiting the places we been to. We went back to shop and eat all the food we wanted to because we knew we had money to spend on clothes and souvenirs. Location: Dongdaemun
Location: Petite France
Location: Monster, Hongdae
Location: Bing, Gangnam We ordered an Oreo Green Tea & Berry Bingsoo. It was about 13$ which was really pricy but honestly it's the best bingsoo I have ever had in my entire life. This was the second time we came here because it was so good and we just had to have it one more time before we leave.
BUSAN, KOREA After staying in Seoul for 1 week, we decided to visit Busan. It is another major and popular city of Korea. It is a totally different vibe. Seoul could get very busy and loud but Busan is much more quiet and known for the beaches. We stayed for 2 days and one night because we didn't want to spend money on a hotel. So we stayed at a 24hr sauna and it was only 10$. It had a really nice view of the beach so it was perfect. We took the KTX there which was about a 2hour ride and it costs 100$ there and back.
So I was lucky enough to go on a summer trip for 3 weeks with 3 of my bestfriends. One day we were like, "hey we should travel during the summer!" That's when I suggested Korea because that's somewhere I always wanted to go. So we all agreed and got our tickets! After that I planned our trip day by day and it was the best 3 weeks ever. So here are some pictures of my trip.

A cat cafe was one of the many things on our bucketlist for our Korea trip. We went to one in Gangnam and it's a place where you order tea/coffee and spend time with the cats. You have to buy a drink, it's like your ticket in the cafe. So to stay the drink costs about 8/9$.
We spent most of our nights in the streets of Hongdae. Hongdae is an area where it is known for its night life due to the many bars and clubs. But there are many people performing on the streets so we decided to sit down and listen with some chicken & beer. Which is a very popular snack in Korea.

We went to an amusment park and it was pretty cheap. It isn't huge like Disneyland but there's a inside and an outside park. There was even an ice skating rink! My friends and I all decided to get cat ears and it was about 7$.
I realized I haven't updated in a really long time...
Over the summer I've been really lazy haha. I was planning to update while I was in Korea for three weeks but that never happened. I'll try to post all the things I was planning to. Currently I'm attending UCSC and I might be busy with college and stuff but I'll still try to update as much as possible. thanks guys!
I met up with my friend Monet on Saturday and we decided to go shopping at The Grove. I got two pairs of shoes from Topshop and a dress from H&M. I've been eyeing on these for ever and I'm excited to wear them in Korea!!
