Seoul, Korea is a great place to go for a short girls’ trip. I recently went with my cousins and we had such an amazing time. Aside from the crazy shopping of clothes and Korean skincare and cosmetics, we treated our stomachs very well with out-of-this-world Korean food! From the very local joints to the more ‘east meets west’ restaurants, Seoul has it all. One thing that we couldn’t get away from (and why would you want to get away from it) is their delicious fermented side dish, kimchi.

This is because you are concentrating the flavour of the wine when you cook it. There are a lot of decent and reasonably priced wines out in the market that I would drink so don’t worry, you don’t need to use expensive wines at all.
