So it snowed all day Saturday and all night Saturday night which meant I woke up on Sunday morning to my very own Winter Wonderland. Living and growing up in Australia generally means I don't see a lot of snow, I did work in a ski resort for 2 seasons so I am accustomed to the stuff. However, it was still cool to wake up and have snow everywhere! Everything I had read said the snow didn't stay around long and on Saturday it was falling pretty hard but was melting as soon as it hit the ground so I didnt think I would see much more of it on Sunday morning but nope, it really made my walking trial beautiful.
I caught the cable car up to N Seoul Tower and then walked back down, a lot of folks were walking up and they looked none too pleased. Jeans and leather boots were not appropriate hiking gear so I went for the far easier option of downhill. Although it was still a little bit slippery in parts, but nothing a slow step and handrail couldn't handle.
These pictures are direct from the camera, I didn't bring my personal computer up here with me so I can't really do any editing.
I also learnt a very valuable lesson, be wary of asking a Japanese man with 3 cameras on his person to take your picture. I have approximately 76 photos of me in this same spot from every possible angle, including him sitting down in the snow. I was trying to say one was fine but he wouldn't have it! So you can have 2 of them. Those puffy jackets are simply not flattering are they, but they are darned warm. The orange beanie isnt really helping the ensemble either. This isn't a fashion blog luckily!
Also, not to brag or anything, but I totally just adjusted the size of this photo using the code. I still have no idea how to code you may or may not have noticed by the poor layout of my blog. I really need to fix that up. I did a coding course which I have promptly forgotten everything from. Use it or lose it as they say.
Could this be any prettier, this is in the middle of Seoul. There were literally hundreds of people hiking on this track.
I wandered down from the National Park and into a memorial park that holds some of the last remnants of the original wall that surrounded Seoul. It actually is pretty cool, although highly restored.
That was my day in the snow, next weekend I will be having more adventures so stay tuned!
