Summer Sunshine in South Korea
This summer in Korea was unlike any summer I have ever experienced. This was due to a few reasons… I had never experienced such heat and humidity sandwiched together. (Yes, I was born in a subtropical city, but I was a baby at the time and was pushed around in a pram, no sweat!!). This time, I walked as a working adult from pillar to post in a blanket of heavy heat and with high levels of humidity that played havoc with my asthma.
Secondly, I was travelling solo to an unknown destination at the other end of the world. Thirdly, I experienced and embraced an utterly unfamiliar culture! After all is said and done – it was an amazing summer experience that I will treasure forever.
I learnt a few ways to deal with the heat – iced americano coffees and ingesting copious servings of Patbingsu. This is a Korean dessert consisting of shaved ice, lathered in fruit, condensed milk and any another delectable topping you can think (sometimes even red bean paste). As a sub-tropical baby I will also confess to having had the odd midday nap to rest and recharge my batteries. Ole!
Over the next while I’ll be sharing some of the tales from my time in Seoul, but to get the ball rolling, here is a short film of my Korean highlights. Watch, enjoy, desire and then start packing! 😉
It all looks like an amazing experience! thanks for sharing!
