I know I have been AWOL again and honestly, I am still finding it difficult to balance fulltime work with pretty much anything else. It has sort of taken over my life, well not really, but it certainly sucks up a lot of my energy and doesn’t leave too much room for anything else. So, apologies for the lack of posts on here in recent times. However, I am going to try doing all my blog work on my weekends (it relaxes me and is fun for me, so that’s not a problem) because during the week isn’t really feasible. Let’s see how this goes!
Part of the reason I’ve been away is because recently I had my mum over to visit! It was quite a whirlwind trip, in the best way possible, and I still can’t quite believe it happened. She always said she was going to come to visit me in Korea, and when it actually happened it was pretty unbelievable. We managed to hook up our arrivals in Kyoto, then come back to Korea and then she went on to Perth before heading home to Melbourne. World traveller!
While I am partial to Korea (and I found myself missing it over the 5-day holiday… weird), I do love Japan and Kyoto is especially beautiful. I am not 100% sure I could live there, but to visit it is a special experience. My personal favourite was the Golden Palace, which was just unbelievably beautiful. There are some things which defy words, and that was one of them. It looked like a postcard, except it was real.
Without further ado, here are a number of photos from our trip… enjoy!
When we got back to Korea, we had a few days in Guri and then mum whisked us off to the Westin Chosun in Myeongdong, Seoul. For anyone who doesn’t know (including myself until a week ago), this is most likely the most badass hotel in all of Korea. Just incredible. It was so relaxing and chilled, especially after the whirlwind week that was, so I think we all appreciated the R&R. We also got to go sightseeing around Gyeongbokgung Palace
All in all it was a really special trip, and one which I will never forget. I know I haven’t really written much today, but I wanted to get the photos up first. I might talk about it in depth later on (if you guys want me to!) but just rest assured that it was totally, 100% awesome.
Until next time,
