    My first visit to Korea

    My best memory of 2013 is going to Korea. I went there with my friend during summer vacation. It was my first visit to Korea. I had wanted to travel somewhere in the summer, and my friend had the same idea. It was first time for us to travel together. We decided to go to Korea, because my friend likes Korean music and fashion, and going to Korea is very inexpensive. We decided this after started the summer vacation.
    I ate Korean Barbecue the day we arrived. It was delicious, but too hot for me. I went to many shopping places and cafés. Korean cosmetics are very famous for being cheap and of high quality,so I bought many. I also bought a lot of clothes. My friend celebrated my 20th birthday in our hotel room. She gave me an accessory as a birthday present. I ate many Korean foods during this trip, because there are many delicious varieties in Korea. My favorite is soon tofu. It is like cooking various in grievance together in a pod. I walked a lot on this trip, so I was tired and slept early. Although, the weather was not good. This trip was an amazing memory of 2013, because I could travel with my friend and eat many Korean foods. I realized that Korean are kind and Korean culture and atmosphere are similar to Japan. Korea is a comfortable travel destination for Japanese tourist.
