Nagoya: What was your best holiday ever, and why?
South Korea. I have many Korean friends and I love going to Seoul. It is a wonderful city for shopping, eating and pampering yourself. Some of the food is rather like delicacies you can find in Japan, yet subtly different, such as tok, their version of our mochi (pounded rice cakes) and their chicken stew. I particularly enjoy massage, combined with being cleansed in a Korean dome-type sauna. Usually I stay five days or a week.
