My Spontaneous Weekend in Seoul
What I learned about Korea: I had my first experience with “Club Day” in Hongdae which the last day of the month where you can buy special passes to enter multiple clubs all covered by the same fee. I learned all about the crowd, music, energy, and scene associated with this new experience.
Picture of the Week:It was one of my Brazilian friends last weekend in Korea so me and a group of 4 other Brazilians went up to Seoul to throw him a fun send off party. This picture is at the beginning of that night in a small shop that specialized in tropical drinks.
Status Report: A draft of the Hubo Manual will be sent out on 2/1 and will include the Hip, Ankle, and some other supporting documents.
What I learned about myself: I actually only intend on staying one night in Seoul and catching the bus back. That night I made a new Korean friend that wanted to hang out with me and show me around the next day. My motto over here has always to never say no to new opportunities or experiences. All of my friends that I came with went home and I decided that I wasn’t done exploring. I stayed at the public spa, met up with my friend the next day and explored Sincheon and Hongdae went out again and stayed ANOTHER night! This is the most independent and spontaneous I have ever been in my life and it resulted in one of my most fun weekends yet. What I learned about myself…I’m much more fearless about throwing myself into new experiences and traveling alone.
Koreans I met: The girl I met that actually showed me around this weekend was named 신아. She spoke really good english despite only living in Canada for a year.
