Lovely pond and pagoda inside the Gyeongbokgung Palace in #Seoul – I visit Seoul often to take a breath and recuperate. When I do, Namsan Tower, the Han River, Cheongyeocheon Stream, and Gyeongbokgung Palaxe are top of my list for revisits. I just love walking around – thinking nothing, but feeling calm ❤🇰🇷
The Girls and I are headed to #Korea! Just for a couple days – #weekendgetaway
😃Did you know 4 is an unlucky number in many Asian countries – especially those with #linguistic influence from #China. This is because 4 has a similar pronunciation as the word ‘death’.
You can see this #hotel in South Korea skipped putting in a 4th floor! 😅.
America is my country, but #Seoul is my hometown. There is something so soothing to me about this city, with the topsy-turvy combination of new & sleek contrasted with old & meandering. The moment I see my river begin to rise in the bus windows, my soul relaxes and I know it’s all ok. To stand, looking out over a city as old as time. Knowing that for centuries, one nation after another (often repeatedly) tried to stamp out its #culture and #Heritage only for Seoul to stay standing. It’s a Beautiful feeling – Here for 14 days!
