While not exactly in my country of exchange, if you ask anyone that met me during my time in Singapore they would be able to tell you my favourite place during my time away. I was lucky enough to visit this place just before I returned home; South Korea.
I had heard so much about it during my time in Singapore (and have shared those experiences with you on here!), I had been introduced to parts of Korean culture, as mentioned in my previous posts, had made Korean friends and had even learnt a little bit of it (only, like, two words, but it’s something!).
Now this was my chance to see if all this hype was really worth it…
To put simply, it was. I felt it had all the great aspects of Singapore: the cute culture, commitment to their studies, welcoming and friendly, but with even better food, low cost alcohol and (finally) some lower temperatures.
I travelled throughout the country over two weeks, visiting the holiday destination: Jeju Island, the coastal and second largest city: Busan and, of course, Seoul. When I look at the photos posted from other people’s travels I find them so interesting, without needing any descriptive text alongside them. I have described briefly why Korea was my favourite place during my time away and want to present it through the photos I took there, and for these to be interpreted without description.
So here is my favourite place over the last year!
