If you follow me on Instagram you would know that a few weeks back, my family and I went on a short trip to the motherland… SOUTH KOREA! whoop whoop! However, and that’s a big, HOWEVER, we didn’t do much shopping. *insert crazy crying face here* but we did something else that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE! We went SIGHT-SEEING!
I know that sight-seeing isn’t for everyone but I actually do love it. Maybe it’s the grandma in me. I don’t know. We did a lot of out-of-the-city tours. We went to different gardens and palaces. We even went to a mountain to see the foliage. Sadly, not all the trees have changed color. Although, the ones that have changed were very beautiful.
For today’s blog post, I thought I’d share them with you guys. It was very educational and it was so much fun.
