Travel Anniversary: South Korea


I can’t believe it’s already been a year since our unforgettable trip to South Korea.

I don’t usually celebrate travel anniversaries, but South Korea has become very dear to me. I have said it a couple of times before and I will say it again, I felt at home in South Korea and I intend to go back someday.

If my boyfriend would finally agree to go with me, then I would be the happiest.

I will see you again, South Korea!

I would really love to go back soon.
