It was pretty fun recapping my first solo trip to Seoul – I tend to do more informational blogposts about places I’ve been to, though I try to exercise the creative writing muscles from time to time. Seoul will always be a little bit special, because of my friend T who I made there (Hello T! *waves*)
We met during the English tour of the Changdeokgung Secret Garden
Somehow we got to talking while wandering around the garden and we ended up deciding to hang out and grab some lunch after the tour. We found ourselves walking down to nearby Insadong and ended up at this random restaurant:
After that we decided to do a little shopping around Ssamziegil and even wandered down to the Cheongyecheon where we soaked our tired feet in cool water and watched them film a commercial on the opposite bank.
We took a touristy shot at the head of the Cheongyecheon (and paid money for it! ack!)
Then headed to Gwanghwamun Square to check it out
Before we parted ways – me to wander around some more (I ended up heading to Dongdaemun later that night) and T went off to reunite with her husband. While we didn’t manage to meet up again later in the trip, I’m glad we still keep in touch today! =)
What kind of friends have you made overseas? Do you still keep in touch today?
