Raise your hand if you’re watching Legend of the Blue Sea or have watched any Koreanovela before. I know I have, many times! They’re the best at creating romantic scenes with beautiful cinematography. This is partly the reason why I wanted to visit South Korea. Who wouldn’t? The places are just so pretty! Now I get double the ‘kilig’ when I watch a Korean series and they were shot in places I’ve already been to. One such place is the Namsan Tower or N Seoul Tower.
If I were to list all my dream destinations, South Korea would be up there in the top 5. I’d always wanted to go there but never really made it a reality because I thought the visa process was much too complicated (It’s totally the opposite though! I blogged about my visa application process here.)
A couple of months ago, on my birthday week, I finally realized my dream and spent 6 days in Korea. 6 days is too short to fully enjoy the place, but that’s all I had so I had to make do.
Since I have acquired a new job, one that requires me to report at an actual office, my longer travels will significantly become less frequent. No more staying abroad for months. At most, I can spend two weeks away, but that is if I decide to take my vacation leaves all in one go, which is kind of not possible. Now before I regret my decision of leaving my work-from-home job, I give you the list of places I want to visit this year.
There’s just a couple more days before we officially say goodbye to 2016. This year has been crazy! I’ve had a lot of memories, good and bad. My year-end blues came early this year which resulted to hard decisions being made. It was such a depressing time but I am happy that I’m leaving some things behind in 2016. It’s impossible to tell you all of the great stories in one post, so I’m posting pictures instead. (This would’ve been easier had I been a diligent blogger!)
Started the year by meeting up with old friends.
