So what am I doing here in Seoul? I get asked that question a lot, especially since I've just moved here. The answer...? So far, nothing much. After working like mad for the past two years and being a bit burnt out, I decided to take some time for myself and get to know my city again.
I was born here in Seoul but left when I was two - so I'm a bit removed from my roots. That's why I'm so excited to be a part of Korea again and to develop a deeper relationship with it - through culture, food, friends... and just life in general.
Here's what I've been up to the past few days. Warning... it's highly mundane stuff. Love it though, I haven't had this in forever!
To head to Bloom and Goûté, head to Gangnam-gu, Sinsa-dong 534-6, or if you're taking public transportation (yay reducing carbon footprints!), get off at Sinsa Station (line 3), Exit 8. Walk straight and when you see the Tous Les Jour bakery, take a left, then taking a right, and an immediate left onto Dosan Street 11. Keep straight until you see Bloom and Goûté on your right (around 12 minutes from the station).
