A date in Daegu

Aaron and I took the KTX train to Daegu to meet up with Jessica and Carlos, for a little date in the city!!

We met them outside the train station and stumbled upon a really awesome wine bar with an outdoor deck!  It was such a nice day out that we grabbed a table near the wood burning stove and had ourselves some red wine and coffee outside!

Jess and A

(This was the BEST cafe mocha I'd ever tasted!  It was like drinking melted chocolate and frosting!)

Jess and Carlos just got back from 16 days in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia!  While they were in Indonesia, they stayed in an artsy town, famous for it's silver work, called Yogyakarta... and took a class where they actually hand made these new wedding rings for themselves!  I LOVE THEM!

After we had finished the delicious bottle of Carminere, we decided to move on to the next place for some dinner!  Jess and Carlos had come to this restaurant last Christmas eve and were huge fans!  It's called Mies.  If you live in Korea, go here!  It's delicious!  

There was a long wait, but it was well worth it!  As you can see, the inside is really industrial, with touches of home here and there!  It's a really cool atmosphere...

... with amazing food!  The portion sizes were gigantic, which made me glad I ordered a greek salad and NOT a pizza 4 days before I'll be wearing a bikini in Thailand!  For the record, I didn't finish it all! 

We stayed at the restaurant for a long time, just talking and laughing, and sharing stories about our travels and life... We opted to skip the opportunity to do some shopping on the famous shopping streets of Daegu and headed for a coffee shop instead!  The shops, restaurant, cafe's and bars in Daegu are all so cozy, artsy and original!  I love it!

Aaron bought a vintage NIKON film camera last week!  He's crazy about it, and takes it everywhere!  Nice of him to let Mayo play with it, huh?! 

What can I say?!  This girl is one of my favorite girls in the world!  It was sooooo nice to catch up!

I'm convinced that drinking good wine, eating delicious food, having stimulating conversations, and endulging in yummy tea and coffee with wonderful friends, is the best way to spend your Saturday!  Try it sometime!  I promise it's wonderful!
