Get ready for the longest Journal ever!


So my trip to South Korea is over since some days already. It feels it was short actually, but I surely enjoyed my time there :) I took an important amount of pictures and I decided to upload some of them here if any of you feels like taking a look at them;  Pictures are not worth the actual thing but it's good to take anyway :')
********



One of my main occupations there was to visit many palaces and temples, thing that I enjoyed a lot and especially when they brought me in particular ambiances and atmospheres I've never been in before. This surely was a nice and interesting experience for me ^^
********



Busan at night; every main cities of South Korea tend to become flashlight-cities once night is here~
********



Skyline of Seoul at sunset. I wish my camera wasn't so poopy though ;u;
********



That dude engaged a staring contest with me... and won.
********



Han-hary got her own fast-food
********



I visited the Seoul Animation Center, which is also a place that hosts a library and a Cartoon Museum. I got interviewed there and shared some of my work :dummy:
********



On the left: I don't know what this means but it reminds me Melky9714's comics.
On the right: an animal that I found and which reminds me of the same person.
********



Random pictures of Seoul... and an emperor penguin.
I had a space to fill so I googled it
Joke, I actually went to an aquarium
Which was in that golden building above
Called Building 63
The tallest building of South Korea
*Shot*
That shit is fucking small

********



The Manwha Museum of Seoul! Which was something very interesting for anyone is interested by comics or anything related to characters and stories and stuff, I think a lot of people here would love to see this ^^
One of the places I enjoyed the most I think.
********



Because dragons kick ass
********



I'm sure you recognize some of them buddies.
This was an outdoor sign for some restaurant...
********



Han-Hury pictured my meeting with her and tangmyun. I'm sorry Han, but I found this way too cute to keep it hidden :')
********



As I did some volunteering in animal shelters, I met some cool and friendly little buddies. Just as William above, who has become my best friend for a day.
********



A random character I've doodled for someone that I met on my way ^^ I happened to do this several times during my trip...
********



Korean food, my new love. Some stands even wanted to give me some food for free but in the most cases I didn't dare accept, lol. :')
On the right: supposedly one of the spiciest sort of ramens you can find there. At the end of my trip I was able to eat that in one shot; my throat was in fire everyday but I REGRET NOTHING
********



A picture of me with my new friend! uhuh
Don't be fooled by the serious face, I swear he's very friendly.
And I'm not that dwarf, he was cheating and standing on a sort of podium
********



I went to a Comic and Anime convention, and took some pictures of Marisa and Alice to tease someone. And of Reimu too, because she's beautiful~
********



Some stuff I've doodled from things I've seen in a museum. One of them is a fake, I let you figure out which one...
********



As you might expect, that guy is pretty much everywhere in Seoul; By this I mean that I stopped to count on how many advertisings I happened to see his face. Hey Psy, share with me your bank account. Haha. No, seriously.
********



On the left a picture I took because I found the image pretty. I'm not sure but I think it has been inspired by a stereotypical picture of France, I'd like to try that game now.

On the right: Nono was there!

Little story that happened once in the subway: I was standing up with my travel bag in the back because there was no vacant seats in the train but this was not something I really cared about, then a rather old woman came to me to leave me her seat; I couldn't accept and I tried to explain her that it was okay since I was going to get out of the metro 2 station later, then she started yelling at the whole train... from what I've understood, she was scolding everyone for not letting me a seat ;; I felt so FUCKING bad...
********



Mmh... I have an impression of Déjà-vu here...
********



Melky and I went to a cafe and I think she tried to tease me with some fastness challenge that she obviously won hands down. She had the time to draw a bunch of sketches while I was inking only one, from her too.
********



Jeju Island is a very pretty place ^^ I got enchanted by some of its beautiful landscapes.
Something interesting is about the odd statue you can see on the third picture above; you can actually see this kind of statues everywhere on the island and apparently no one knows their origins nor their precise significance.
********



Other thing: people on that island seemingly enjoy drawing eyebrows on their dogs to make them more... expressive.
********



I went to a funny and sweet place called "the Museum of Sex and Health" :iconohstopityouplz: I let you imagine what you can hear when you pick up the phone, or what happens when you follow the metallic path around the girl without to touch the edge. I can't really upload any other picture from that place or else my DA page would become X-rated
********



Seems to be a custom to make Stadiums looking like spaceships. (see Montréal's)
********



Some robots making some cool stuff (yep, they were moving)
********



Melky and some other artists recently published an Illustration book Sonic-related and she offered me one :') I'm not sure I can reveal what is into so I'll keep it closed, but this is surely a precious gift that I shall cherish forever, hehe :D
********



********************


If you've read everything, congratulations! :XD: I wish I could express more properly my feelings toward my trip, but I shall keep precious memories from it in my mind, including the places I've seen, the people I met... the food I've eaten!
One of my best memories still being my meeting with Han-hary,tangmyun and of course Melky9714 :)

To Canada now! ...soon

Thanks a lot for reading, I am proud of you, soldiers!
That's all Folks! :dummy:

Going to Japan for a Graduation gift sounds like... a fabulous Graduation Gift to me! :'D

I never went to Japan so far even though I was really nearby that time. This is one of my dreams to finally get there and I know I'll do it eventually.
You might like South Korea too. That Anime convention I went to is hosted in Seoul every month so you might get the chance to go and cosplay there as well :)

Meeting friends that live in the other side of the planet surely is something special, I was all happy meeting them.

And my korean language knowledge is derp, I learnt their alphabet and a very few words to help me survive there, but the most time I stuggled finding someone who can speak english when I needed some help ^^ Ah well, that was really fun and I enjoyed anyway.

Excuse me for the late reply, I'm having a hard time to keep track of all them messages uh ^^' Thanks for your comment!

Haha thank you, thank you > v <'// stills a maybe depends on how good I do~!
but hopefully I'll graduate in top 10% haha <3

Aww don't worry, the chance to go will arrive eventually  (^▽^) Did you go to Korea
as a business trip? Or was it just for the sake of having fun and taking a break from
aaaaall work > v  < ? Because from those pictures I can tell you sure had so much
fun~!<3
ANd what? Every month? Gosh that's great <3 Did you take any pictures of cosplayers?
Korean cosplayers are some of the best cosplayers out there (^ω^)♥:// if I ever get the chance to go that'll be one
of my main venues to visit and I believe so, a completely different atmosphere from the usual one
must be a great experience.

Oh wow, hahaha really? I did think you knew how to speak Korean but as long as your knowledge helped
you survive then I guess it's fine, Korean seems like such a hard language to learn... specially their
pronunciation > A <'//  and their writing system///

But anyways~! AHHH Don't mind at all <3 In fact I appreciate the fact you bothered replying ; __; thank you.
AGH and this is another long message pffft, sorry~!<3 > v <'// don't feel like you need to reply right away
or at all. I still appreciate your time. Thank youu!!!
