I’m back at Seoul for the 3rd year in a row. I’ve always liked how this city grows each time I come back. New buildings, discovering more massive shopping malls in parts of Seoul I haven’t been yet and trying out new Korean delicacies that are well tasty.
Coming into Seoul 4 days earlier has given me a bit more time to get into the swing of things plus venturing out more before the tournament just to explore what’s in store in this vibrant city.
The Best Western Hotel Kukdo has been happy to house us again for the second time and we instantly made ourselves at home to the familiar rooms. Being in the center of the city (that’s what I think) has made it easier for us players to get around, especially with their efficient subways and taxis available at every corner.
It’s shopping galore here and I think I’m going to take get into a frenzy tomorrow afternoon after my training with fellow Squash Star Samantha Teran on the glass court outside the I-Park Mall, Yongsan Station. Wonder what I’ll purchase this time.
