This is it! The final post about Korea! I’m sad just thinking about it..
You’re probably wondering what’s going on in this picture. That’s my friend Jessica and she is lying on that table bed thing to get….eyelash extensions. She asked me to come with her because she needed someone who could speak Korean fluently so the lady knew exactly how she wanted them done.
Now, I personally had my doubts about how different a person could possibly look with longer eyelashes. Sure, good eyebrows can change a person’s face but eyelashes? I was a little skeptical.
But, boy, was I wrong. Seriously these eyelash extensions are beautiful and I was punching myself for not having enough money or time to get this done before I left Korea. Although, I feel like I would do a horrible job with maintenance so perhaps it was for the best that I didn’t get my eyelashes done…
After Jessica got her eyelashes done, we met up with friends in Myeongdong!
But we weren’t there for the shopping. No, not this time. We were in Myeongdong to get pedicures. Specifically, pedicures via fish.
Okay, so these pictures basically say it all but there are tiny fish called Doctor Fish that eat only dead skin. So you just dunk your feet into a pool with these fish in it and after five minutes, voila, your feet will be as soft as a newborn baby’s butt.
It’s such a weird sensation and, as a super ticklish person, it was very hard to bear initially. Also it’s kind of gross so it’s hard to look directly at the fish when they’re doing their thing…At least it was for me! Some of my friends just couldn’t do it and surrendered after two seconds.
Afterwards, we went to the Han River because it was a beautiful day out. And for once it wasn’t swelteringly hot either! It was probably around 75 degree Fahrenheit rather than 85. The wind was blowing gently so that, by the time we arrived at the river, it was actually almost cold.
There were some students from Seoul National University who were putting on some sort of show. It involved groups dancing, singing, comedic skits, and MCs.
This may be one of my favorite shots of the whole Korea trip. Seriously, Korea can be such a beaut sometimes!
We met up with some of Sally’s friends from back home. Yay for new friends!
I love this photo too ❤
The fella on the right is actually someone I go to school with and we’ve sort of run in the same circles but never really met before that day. Turns out he’s one of Sally’s high school friends! It’s a small world after all~
And that concludes my blog posts about my trip to Korea. I have some amazing memories from this past summer and am glad that I decided to share these memories on this blog! Thanks for reading… More blog posts to come, just not about Korea 🙂
Stay awesome, y’all.
