2016-04-11-02.49.53-1.jpg.jpeg

My trip to South Korea with my high school friend, Mon, involved 11 days of touring Seoul (with day trips to Paju, Anyang, and Gapyeong), Danyang, Busan, and Jeju. Our fourth stop was in Jeju Island (Jeju-do) which is Korea’s largest volcanic island and smallest province.

Genki Sushi is a Japanese chain restaurant located at Bonifacio Stopover, Bonifacio Global City. It allows you to order a variety of sushi using a tablet computer before delivering it to your table by a train-like conveyor belt.

We cannot always travel to our dream destinations (unless you do it for a living) due to several reasons such as tight budget, hectic schedule, vacation leave dilemmas, family priorities, health issues, and the like.
