I am back safe and sound from Osaka, and I present Timeless Thoughts, a link-up Georgie and I co-host. She and I have decided to make this our final link-up post, after running this for over two years. All good things must come to an end, and we hope you will all join this last link-up. If you would like to participate, you’re more than welcome to join our link-up by submitting your entry with the link-up widget located at the end of this entry. This link-up is opened for two weeks, and your entry can be about anything you find unforgettable from your past or present! It can be an object, an event, a person — anything goes — and you can have more than one thing you miss or find unforgettable.
For my last TT entry, I want to write about my online friend meetups this year. Last year, I blogged about my many meetups. I didn’t think I’d meet any online friends this year, but I did! I met up with three friends, one being a re-meetup of another from years ago, and I had a wonderful time. It was great finally meeting couple of them in person, and they are experiences I will not forget.
Georgie and I met when she came to Seoul for her honeymoon! After knowing her for over six years, it really was great seeing her in person, along with Nick! We met and I showed her around my old hood. We had kombucha at Fat Cat, visited Namsan Park, and had dinner at Noxa Oriental. I had a lovely time with them, and I hope to see them again in the future!
Tokki is a friend I’ve known since 2001 timeframe. We actually met up once around 2003, but we kept in touch online all these years until she finally revisited Seoul. For this meetup, we ventured out to Hongdae and checked out the One Piece Cafe, a Cartoon Network Shop, and a Studio Ghibli shop. We had dinner at Noxa Oriental, and then we wandered around Itaewon a bit before we returned to her hotel. There I spent the night, and the next day we had brunch at Cali Kitchen and explored Insa-dong. It was fun hanging out with her, and we were able to geek out on so many things. The photo above shows her gifts to me!
My last meetup was with Sydney! We met up when I travelled to Osaka! We went to Osaka Castle and Umeda area. I had a relaxing time in Osaka Castle with her, and we had quite an adventure in Umeda getting lost in the humongous train station. Eventually we found our way to Ichiran Ramen, and I enjoyed their ramen. Afterwards, we went to Animate Umeda, and we parted at Umeda Station. I’m glad to have met Sydney, and I hope she’ll make her way to Seoul soon *hint hint hint* XD
This concludes my post. Below are the rules, banner, and the widget for you to submit your entry; you will have two weeks to submit! I look forward to seeing all your posts. Georgie and I thank you again for participating in our final link-up!
