A PEEK FROM YTB’S PREVIOUS POST:
We left Ewha University at 01:00 PM and headed off to our next destination – Trick Eye and Ice Museums.
Direction from Ewha to Trick Eye:
From Hongik University Station, follow the direction specified below to get to Trick Eye. You can also refer below for the key information about the museum:
Trick Eye Museum is an art gallery that displays 2D paintings that give a 3D illusion through the use of a special element called: ‘trompe l’oeil’. Through these illusions, Trick Eye promotes fun, exciting, and creative experiences to its visitors. Do you want to know how? Join me as I share to you our own fun and hilarious experience in this place!
I had a fun time trying to fit into this empty frame. Do I look like I’m part of the entire display?
In the jungle the mighty jungle!
It is not yet too late to start playing the piano!
Is this the anointed or the annoying-ted?
We had to take this picture thrice to get the optimal effect
I should have taken ballet classes when I was a child.

Ouchie! Beheaded by the witch!
My head was stuck…

Again?! No peeking my dear
It’s funny how our expressions were so different here!

Ms. TravelingBoots, don’t you think your expression is too happy for the situation?
Explore, explore, explore!

Abundance! Oh yeah!
The prayerful and the playful angels!
Whoops! That is cheating!
Just a side story, my best friend’s cellphone slipped on her pocket while we were on the train going to Trick Eye. What she did was to go back to Ewha Station and asked the Admin if there was a lost phone surrendered to them. Indeed, the phone was returned by an honest Korean Citizen who saw it from the train.
For good deeds like this, it will not go unnoticed. So we would really like to extend our gratitude to the anonymous person and the Subway authority for helping us out. Thank you so much!
Going back to our adventure, adjacent to Trick Eye is the Ice Museum. Our admission ticket was already inclusive of both museums. Inside are displays of frozen spots like igloo, house set-up, piano, slide and stairs, sled, and many more!
Someday, I will be taking my picture inside a real Igloo, for now this will do.

We surely had fun in the museums, but we had to move fast for our next destination – the Han River Cruise!
HAN RIVER PARK
Direction from Trick Eye Museum to Han River (Yeouinaru Station)
Important Information about Han River Park:
Word of caution: give yourself enough allowance for the walk since Gongdeok Station is relatively big and the docking place of the cruise ship is around 1.5km from Yeouinaru Station (just an approximation).
We were supposed to catch the 17:40PM cruise, however, we did not anticipate the walking distance so we missed it. Fortunately, we missed one of the expensive trips so the delay was a blessing in disguise.
We got the 18:30-19:10 trip at 6,000 KRW (245 PHP). Had we hopped on the 17:20 trip, we should have paid 19,000 KRW (774 PHP), hurray! For more information on the cruise, please visit E-Land Cruise’s site.
The cruise was a memorable trip for us. It was also like a victory party for crossing off all the list on our itinerary for the past four days.
The November air was very cold and majority of the people abode the ship were group of teenagers: their energy was contagious. We chose to sit on the open deck to have a full view and feel of the Han River at night.

Traveling with my best friend is one of the things I enjoy the most!
