How to hire a bike in Seoul
This is a service Hugh uses a lot, so when they reached out to us to do a sponsored video we were happy to do it. Hugh uses this several times a week to ride around the neighbourhood but also if he has had a big night out and the subway has stopped running, and there are no taxis, it’s super convenient for him to just ride home. There are bike stations everywhere so there are a few very close to where we live.
In this video we also participated in the Seoul Bike Ride/Parade which is an annual event. We had never done it before but definitely want to do it again next year! We could only do some of it, due to me being pregnant and then also for the filming. It gives you a different view of Seoul that you usually only see some inside a car. With all the cars off the road there is the feeling of a much wider space and it’s easily to appreciate the buildings and the city in a different way. Hopefully we can do it again next year.

YTN was filming us for a segment about YouTubers in Korea. Sara and Yoojin joined us as we explored the Mangwon markets. Since we had to film for YTN’s filming we made a vlog of the day.
In this Seoul Life video Hugh talks about his experience on Korean TV. Filming always takes longer than you think it will! We also say goodbye to our friends Diana and Gisela from Double Trouble en Corea and show a few clips from our live in Seoul recently.
We’ve had a lot of stuff on lately and haven’t been able to do a ‘Seoul Life’ video but here is a new one finally! As you can see we’ve been busy being 니콜라 이모 and 휴삼촌 (Aunt Nichola and Uncle Hugh).
Hugh is starting an exercise and diet plan as part of a collaboration with another YouTuber, who will be his personal trainer. They planned on filming today but it was snowing. That didn’t stop them. He will be vlogging his fitness on our channel over the next 6 months.
Another Snapshot of my Day video on the Nicholalala channel. Just a winter day.
In this video we get hanboks at a special event, we see friends and first snow of the season! Hugh had a lot more to say about the Dokkaebi drama but the camera battery ran out and we had to start that bit again and then he forgot to say what he wanted to. But we’ll talk about it again later!
It was very exciting for YouTubers to get proper hanboks (traditional Korean clothes) like this and to be acknowledged for promoting Korea to an international audience. Hugh was been quite passionate about having a good YouTube community in Korea and has been doing a lot of behind the scenes work to get stuff happening.
