Oh finally!

It’s finally been snowy in Seoul.
I understand that, as someone who never grew up with snow outside of the occasional winter vacation, I get a little too excited over something that others, who have actually had to live with it, can find irritating.

But c’mon…isn’t it beautiful?

The last time I lived with snow was in Germany, and in a bout of nostalgia I’ve dredged up some photos of the first real snowfall I’d ever experienced.

My neighborhood looked a bit different then.

I remember that morning: I woke up and cracked open my window to let the fresh air in, just like every morning. But that day, something was disturbingly different………was that ash falling from the sky?!

I remember staring outside, utterly and hopelessly confused for a heavy second, and then, suddenly – OH.

It didn’t stick long enough to enjoy at the Weihnachtsmarkt, but those are picturesque enough by themselves.

Nice to meet you too, winter.

    Wonderful photos as always! I grew up in one of the snowiest cities in Canada, and am back here again for the holidays. I have to admit, I’m really loving the snow at the moment.

      I wish it would snow more! Unfortunately it’s just brutally cold at the moment…

    Just came across your blog from someone’s blogroll – your photos are wonderful and I’m really enjoying reading about your travels. Can’t wait to read more.

    Just curious, where are you from originally?
