I’m leaving for Seoul on the 22nd and I’m super excited to go back! I can’t believe that my trip is almost here. Just awhile ago, my friend and I were going back and forth about where to go during winter break and I made my first plane ticket purchase ever. I studied abroad in Seoul in the summer of 2011 and I had such a great time. Living in Seoul for those two months was my first time to travel abroad without my family. I was a little nervous at first, but once I touched town in Korea, I totally loved it. It just confirmed that I love traveling and I wanted to live abroad.
I hope to visit some sites that I wasn’t able to visit when I was there the first time and to also revisit some of my favorites. I can’t wait to eat Korean food (I’ve been missing spicy food so much) and surround myself with kpop. This is my first time to travel during winter, so it’ll be a different experience and a major challenge (hello, extremely cold weather). Hopefully I won’t turn into a popsicle! I will probably look like a marshmallow in my pictures, so don’t laugh. I don’t know how to dress for the cold….
Do you have any recommendations for winter activities in Seoul? How exactly do you dress for the cold?
