South Korea // Part I

A couple months ago, I had the opportunity to go spend a week in South Korea. It was a wonderful spontaneous decision that happened within the span of a couple hours. We found an insanely great promo deal with Singapore airlines that was expiring THAT DAY, and the same day I got the call from my bestest Cousin Grace that she would be in Korea at the same time which sealed the deal. So we jumped at the chance and booked the tickets that afternoon.

Turns out, we couldn’t have picked a better time to visit. The colors! Reds and golds and greens. I was blown away by how beautiful the natural surroundings of Korea were, and I was like a kid in a candy shop oohing and ahhing and snapping photos left and right.

Yes, a mosquito stung me in the eye, yes we caught the swine flu, and yes my cousin forced me to eat raw crab meat, but my overwhelming memories of this trip remain firmly rooted in the intense beauty of this country. This is only my 2nd time visiting and it definitely won’t be my last.
