I grew up in Seoul, Korea. For me, going home involves a 6,000 mile journey across the Pacific Ocean, from Los Angeles to Seoul. How far do you have to travel to go home?
Seoul is a bustling metropolitan city with over ten million people. I call Seoul, “New York on steroids”.
Literally, this is the city that never sleeps. There is always something going on in this skyscraper jungle.
With all the bustle going, for me, going home means one thing, spending time with my family and friends and eating good food together.
Also, going home means eating a massive breakfast prepared by my mother. Culturally, it’s very much engrained in Korean mothers to express their love by feeding their children well. My mom being a prime example, I ate like a king throughout the entire trip.
So, I wanted to share some of my trip with you to show you what life is like in Korea. Enjoy the fall scenery and the bits of tasties in the video.
The Holiday season is here. If you are travelling, or going home for the holiday, have a wonderful trip! Be grateful that you have a place that you can call home, and miss. I believe it is nice to have something to long for.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
