Korea is full of beautiful and historical landmarks, but 경복궁 (Gyeongbokgung) will always be our favorite. We visit the palace at least once every season, in every kind of weather, any chance we get.

This year, the hubby and I celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary. Since we were unable to have a honeymoon, we decided that every year on our anniversary we would take a trip. The first year we went to Chiang Mai and the second we went to Bali. We were so excited for our next big adventure… and then Covid hit.

After what seemed like an eternal winter (not really complaining), spring has finally returned to Seoul. The first signal is the blooming of cherry blossoms all across the country; something I really look forward to every year.
