This past weekend was one of those amazing weekends that I wish could happen all the time. It also reminded my of why I am here in Korea, and why I love this country, which I haven't been lately. I have had a hate-hate relationship with Korea, and all that, but I won't get into it. It's going well now, and whats past is past, right?
So, back to this weekend!
Originally, a group of us had planned on going to a Strawberry festival in a town about an hour south. Unfortunately, we were unable to get bus/train tickets to get there, so we decided to go to the Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival in Seoul. Which was a fantastic idea. Spring (봄) is a little late this year, so there wasn't TOO many cherry blossoms in full bloom, but we DID manage to catch a free K-pop concert with some BIG names!
After that, we made the treck up to Namsan Mountain-AKA Seoul Tower! It was my first time up the tower and, let me assure you, the view was totally worth it! It was fantastic! Sometimes I forget that I am in the third biggest city in the world.
And now that I have seen the night view, I want to go back to see the day view!
It was a great weekend, with great food, great events, great conversation and amazing friends. I hope to have a few more of these memories before I leave here.
