You won’t believe South Korea is this beautiful

When I moved to Seoul, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I imagined a loud, busy, crazy city; ignited at night with endless lights and covered in thick purple smog during the day.

That image rings true, but only about 20% of the time. The city is also pictured with beautiful blue skies and strings of sunlight. The alleyways are quiet and tranquil at night. I’ve escaped the city to explore nature, temples and beautiful beaches. Here are a few of my favourite photos you won’t believe were taken in South Korea this September:

After spending a month here, I seriously love Korea. While there are some things that drive me wild, I am ecstatic to have another 3 months to explore.
