To a certain extent, a tower is a tower. Every major city seems to have one and they often seem like a cash grab. Regardless, we paid the money to go up the N Seoul Tower and I'm glad we did. Looking out over Seoul made me appreciate just how huge it it is. It sprawls for mile after mile in every direction. As someone who grew up in a city of less than a million, it sort of boggles my mind.

  3. I wonder what it is about people that when we get together we choose to build tall buildings. Whatever it is, I can definitely appreciate the view that they provide. I grew up in Chicago, but I've heard from my friends that you don't know what "crowded" means until you've visited Asia.

  4. beautiful, janis. that lock-covered bridge is like the one in paris! (but way more crowded and colorful, probably!)

  7. I like getting glimpses of this place. Korea is low on my list of places to travel to (maybe your photos will change that), so I've never even researched what to see or do there. Looking forward to seeing more. Hope you guys are adjusting easily to the new life!

    1. We forgot to buy to buy one before and the ones there were a bit tacky (although maybe that's the point!). Regardless, if we go back when family is visiting, we'll bring a cool one!
