… the beginning of the photo recollection!
From June 10 to July 5, 2013, a couple friends and I blitzed through five different countries. And as I sit, part-jet-lagged, part-insomniac at 2 in the morning going through thousands of photos, there’s a sinking feeling in my stomach and a smile on my face…
First stop: Seoul, Korea! The Muthaland!
3 months old and SO much personality already! She makes eye contact, laughs, chats it up, sings, laughs. She’s full of facial expressions when she baby-talks too. She even smiles and frowns in her sleep. She really knows how to melt your heart and win you over immediately.
My parents apparently also bought some property in this tiny little village. It sits at the top of very steep hill following the wall that used to enclose old Seoul. The view from some parts is amazing and yet from others you can only see dilapidated roofs. However, places like this don’t exist anymore in Seoul, a place that exhibits an old soul of Seoul. I loved it. Korean dramas apparently do too because they often film here.
