South Korea is amazing, from its food to people, everything about South Korea has been nothing but amazing. Being able to stay there for three weeks and immersing myself in their culture was an experience I will never forget. Having a chance to be away from home to learn more about the Korean culture, language and lifestyle has opened my eyes to a whole new world. It also enabled me to be independent. It would not have been easy without the people around me. Being able to attend classes with people from all over the world was an eye-opening experience. Even though we were from different countries, the language brought us together. The teachers who taught us were funny and made the class fun for all of us. It made waking up early to attend the classes something I look forward to every day.
I was in awe of the beauty of the campus, though it may be quite far away from Seoul. It really is a beautiful campus. I had been to Korea a couple of times, but it was different than all the rest as I had classes to attend to and I was also travelling alone. I also got to see new things and try new food, thanks to all of my friends who were willing to try everything with me.
One of my favourite places was Hwasung, in Suwon. It resembled a mini Great Wall of China in the midst of a busy city. Another place that I have always wanted to visit was called Sky Park. Though the days were hot and humid, the view was beautiful. I have heard people say that the view in Sky Park is nicer during the colder seasons, but it was still beautiful when I saw it. Being on top of the mountain overlooking the Han River was an experience itself.
Being able to spend my birthday in Seoul was really special. Even though I was away from my home and family, it was actually not as bad as I thought it would be as most of my friends spoiled me. The experience has been both both nerve-racking and wonderful. I wish I could turn back time to go through it all over again.
