Winter in Korea

Korea is one of my favorite places in the whole world. It’s actually on top of my list. To summarize, Spring time was the first time I went there and I was on my “soul-searching” phase because my heart was deeply broken at that time. The second time I went there was during Winter, and to be honest I was pretty lost that time (in life) because I kept on failing in one exam that I need to accomplish but I’m still happy I got to spend my Christmas in Korea with my family and that gave me strength. This year’s Summer, I went there to celebrate because something good happened to me that opened up a new opportunity. 

As you can see, Korea saw my worst and my best. For some its in the form of a human (might be a girlfriend or a boyfriend) but for me its a place, a place I call my second home. 


This is how I spent my Christmas break in Korea:
