One of my favourite things about Seoul: shopping in the subway stations. It certainly makes any journey more enjoyable! Some stations are lucky enough to have entire underground malls within their tunnels. And I am lucky enough to live one stop away from such a place. These malls consist of small cubby stores stuffed full of clothes, shoes, restaurants, books, household items, CDs and DVDs, and anything else you can imagine. Thousands of shoes tempt me with every transfer. Racks of jewellery sparkle as I pass by. A waffle’s delicious scent wafts through the tunnels and entices me to devour it while I walk to the next platform.
