Sheep Cafe in Hongdae

A unique cafe experience in Hongdae, Seoul. The cafe, Thanks Nature Cafe, has two happy and live sheep hanging out just outside the cafe. You can feed the sheep, have some coffee and snacks next to them, pet them, etc. The owner of the sheep is often in the cafe – you can see him working on his laptop in one of the photos above. He’s very hipster and friendly :)

Admiral Yi Sun Sin, Gwanghwamun

Gwanghwamun area, Seoul. This fast-paced, super modern area also houses statues and old palaces memorializing Korean history. This statue of Admiral Yi Sun Sin (이순신) overlooks the busy streets filled with cars and pedestrians. He is considered a Korean hero – as a Naval commander, he battled against Japanese invasion. Apparently, one of his most remarkable defeats was during the battle of Myeongnyang where his soldiers were outnumbered 333 ships to 13. Admiral Yi died in 1598 during battle.
