Travelogue: Winter in Seoul Part 1


2 seasons done! 2 seasons more to go. My love for Korea just never ends. Though it was minus something degrees C my mom and I braved the streets of Seoul. Coming from a tropical country of course, the very low temperature was too much and everything just felt too cold. My nose was dripping the whole time - which you can't see in the pictures, thanks God - and my toes felt numb even with the thick leather boots I was wearing. Luckily, socks are sold everywhere in Seoul and you can buy them at a really cheap price. My mom and I bought some thick, fussy socks and they sure felt warm and nice on my toes. I was also fortunate that the scarf I bought was quite thick and long that I can wrap it three times so it can also be used as a makeshift balaclava. My lips and my nose were freezing especially in the evening so that was very helpful. I can't wait 'til I go back!

To experience winter once in my life was a dream come true. Too bad we weren't able to experience snow falling from the sky but nevertheless, just to see them on the ground and feel them on my shoes was already magical. I felt like I was in a fairy tale! Now I am loving winter and I really wish I can go elsewhere next Christmas. For now here are some pictures from my last trip to Seoul. More pictures coming your way in the coming posts.
