Travelogue: Winter in Seoul Part 3


The moment we alighted the plane, it felt freezing cold. I think it was about -7 degrees C. It felt like I was in a freezer and every time I talk, fog comes out of my mouth. On our way to the hotel, I was expecting to see snow on the ground. It snowed the week before our trip and because of the below freezing point temperature, I didn't think snow would have melted by then. To my dismay, there were no snow in sight. It was a 45-minute taxi ride from the airport to our hotel in Yeouido but I didn't see any. My mom and I were both disappointed. We really wanted to see snow as it would have been our first time. Even during our first day in Dongdaemun, Myeongdong and Namdaemun there were no snow in sight. Thus, we were giddy like kids when we finally saw a lot in Changdeokgung. I knew there would be snow here (just a hunch, though)! It was slippery and accident-prone but we didn't care. We were just too happy to see snow for the first time in our lives. My toes were freezing and I was worried to acquire frost bite the whole time we were touring. But now when I think about it, I want to experience snow again. We didn't see them falling from the sky but just the overall experience of seeing them and touching them was already magical to me. Next time - in case there is a next time - I will be more prepared for the snow.

    1. Thank you! Really? I am the opposite. Even if I complain that it is too cold, I really love it when it's cold. I love the "cuddle weather." Our rainy season temperature is nowhere near winter in mid-latitude countries!
