Seoul, day 1

Full of colour and history, South Korea is just beautiful! There’s art everywhere, and its own aesthetics carry a strong feeling of a somewhat sensitive nature, I cannot quite explain… There’s a massive contrast between old and modern in every corner; massive buildings surround the ancient palaces and temples spread all over the city. The nights never feel lonely; neon lights light up everywhere and the streets are constantly alive. There’s so much to see, and so much great food to taste… I felt like my time there was not even enough to do/try it all. I visited around the time the leaves were about to change colour, which made it all even more beautiful!

I can’t forget to mention the people… Everybody is so kind, and I was lucky enough to constantly be surrounded by this kindness during my time in Korea.

Seoul was definitely my favourite place. For those who know me, they are well aware of my love for big cities.

However, it’s hard now to get the right words to describe my entire experience there, as writing about it would never be enough to convey my real emotions. So I decided my photos are the best way for me to do that.

It was a journey of a lifetime for me. Waving goodbye to Korea was far too painful, and my heart has been ‘broken’ since; little pieces of it remain scattered all over Seoul.
