After exploring Changdeokgung Palace and strolling around the streets for the first two days, my boyfriend really felt the jetlag and we slept in the next day until 1PM. This never happens, as my boyfriend always wakes up early and is not really a person to sleep in (contrary to myself, I need at least 10 hours of sleep or I will be very very grumpy.)
So we decided to keep it at a slower pace and visited the National Museum of Korea which of course is located in Seoul. What is really really amazing: Almost every museum in Seoul is free of charge. So you can just go there for free. I wish we had that in Germany too! I love to educate myself and would spend rainy weekends a lot more often in museums if they were free or at least cheaper. Also, the National Museum of Korea has a lot to offer; It's not just a big museum but also has a park nearby, a pavillon and architecture to explore. If the weather is too bad for going around town this would be my main recommendation :)
As it was already too late for breakfast.. had to breakfast in our room as I cannot work before I didn't have my tea. Don't talk to me, like ever, before I didn't sip my tea. It's an unspoken rule that all my friends know of.
Entrance to the National Museum is on the left with the park nearby being upfront.
Pavillon in front of the National Museum where we rested for a little bit.
The view climbing up the stairs near National Museum; you can see Namsan Hill (which we climbed on day 6) and Seoul Tower!
