For a short break from the city life, today we made a half-day-trip in Suwon, which was around 1h driving to the south from Seoul’s center. Our main purpose was to visit the Hwaseong Fortress, an UNESCO World Heritage, that was built at the end of the 18th Century. We started our 5.5km walk on the fortress at the Hwahongmun Gate and finished after 3h.
A perfect location to escape the city and to shoot!
If you visit Seoul during the upcoming weekend (May 11th until 13th), you will have a great chance to join one of the Korean traditional and most colorful festival there – the Lotus Lantern Festival. This is to celebrate Buddha’s birthday on April 8th by Lunar Calendar (May 22nd 2018).
Since yesterday, visitors can already enjoy the first laterns on Cheonggyecheon stream.
After spending over a decade living and working in Germany, thanks to my dearest hubby, I now have a chance to spend my sabbatical leave in South Korea. Leaving a lot of things behind, we are now in Seoul and start a new adventure together.
I promised myself to spend my time here wisely, to do worthwhile things, to try out things that I have always whished to do but never had time for it.
In this blog, I would like to share with you my personal experiences living and exploring South Korea.
Hope you will enjoy it and looking forward to your comment and feedback!
