Growing up in a tropical country and working in a country that is mostly summer even in winter, we have limited seasons to experience i.e. dry season, wet season and drier season. LOL. So experiencing fall for the first time was like an oasis to our deserts and a warm food to our hunger. 😛
I’m particularly looking forward to visiting Mt. Namsan when we were in Seoul. Why? Because autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile. 🙂 Mt. Namsan means nature, beautiful walking trails and trees, trees that have auburn, scarlet and copper leaves, warm colors that brings feast to the eyes and peace to the heart. Please be warned as what you will see in this post are trees, leaves, and mostly trees.
On our second day in Seoul, following our planned itinerary, with our four layers of clothes and our resolve to wander where the wifi is weak (though wifi is never weak in Seoul) off we go to Gyeongbok Palace for oppa hunting! I mean, sightseeing. LOLs.
We were in Seoul the last two weeks of November 2016. The plan is to go the first week so we can enjoy the best of autumn, things happened and the trip was moved two weeks after. We don’t have much expectations as we’ve read somewhere that the last weeks of November are when the season transitions from autumn to winter, meaning leaves have fallen and the weather is expected to be gloomy.
As the proverbs say, every cloud has a silver lining, indeed it has. 🙂
When we arrived, autumn is in full bloom. (Hallelujah!) Bursting in autumn colors, yellow, red, brown and orange leaves are everywhere! As my sister calls it, the last of autumn – it was nothing short of wonderful!!!
