Seoul Searching

hyewha,

Moving to a entirely different part of the world has gotten my wheels turning so fast, I haven’t really had time to process it all. Every facet of our life has changed in these eight months. More on THAT later. What I can tell you is that we absolutely love Korea and explore the magical city of Seoul as much as time allows. It never disappoints. Today I’m sharing the day we spent exploring Hyehwa Mural Village and walking along the Fortress Wall. While much of Korea’s heritage has been destroyed because of war, Korea’s long and storied history is still ever-present due to reconstruction and preservation efforts. Seoul is very much a modern, bustling city, but the juxtaposition with ancient Korean architecture that is scattered throughout the city isn’t lost on us. A strong desire for our children to understand they are part of something much bigger than themselves was a primary motive for our choice to live overseas. Today was one of those days that this lesson was starkly evident. As we descended along the wall, the Dongdaemun Design Plaza designed by world renowned architect Zaha Hadid, came into view. It was the closest experience¬†to time traveling that I’ve ever encountered. I hope that these images evoke some of this and I hope you enjoy them. Cheers! On a side note, poor Ellie (not really) was in JAPAN for basketball finals, so she wasn’t able to join us on this particular day, but the realization that her days with us are numbered isn’t lost on me. “Mom”ing isn’t for the faint of heart.
