Despite the weather’s fine attempt of balls shrivelling chills and blizzards, the fall foliage of Korea still seems to be standing firm. These magnificent aligned tree path is the perfect setting for Fall season located just at the front gates of Chonnam University in Gwangju. So I heard that if you are a local, want to be cheap, and you cannot be arsed to travel 6 hours up to Nami Island’s famous aligned tree path, here is your best option! Well, Korea has many carbon copies of famous places all around the country and they can be just as photogenic.
Since the chilling wind in Korea is the equivalent of your mother putting you on house arrest, these days are mainly filled with endless trips to the café, gluttonising on bagels, and intoxicating myself with caffeine. I cannot seem to ever study at home or the library. If it is toooooo quiet I start to get all fidgety and start catching up on continuous disappointing episodes of Glee. Now we hit December, the Christmas lights are now up and classic carols are playing in the background of every café. Oh…the festive spirit has come finally! I must admit I find it very entertaining sitting at a coffee shop trying to absorb as many Korean vocabulary as possible whilst sipping my coffee and looking outside the window catching couples re-enact famous scenes from popular dramas *fingers curl*….I’m not a kill joy or anything, but stop it! When will these people finally realise Korean dramas are not of romantic genre but of fantasy?
