Vacation Planning: Gangam Style

Alan and I will be heading off to Seoul this summer for my brother's 1 (of 2!) weddings. We've been excitedly planning the trip and were stoked to have recently discovered airbnb. Have you heard of it? "Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences" around the world.
My sweet brother and soon-to-be sis when they met in Seoul!
The apartment we booked is in the heart of Gangnam (yes, like the song) which is apparently one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Seoul. Instead of spending $300+ a night for five nights at a hotel, we're staying in this brightly lit high-rise apartment for just $80/night.

I've heard great things about airbnb so we're really excited to try it out. Have you airbnb'd? This ginormous Bowery loft that sleeps 14 (!) would be so fun, and affordable, for a girls trip in the city!

p.s. The first time I visited Seoul I pretended I was "Roxy Ripa" and recorded footage documenting our adventures. My brother, LT, made it into these three (ridiculous) videos 1, 2, 3.
