About two weeks ago I posted an event up on this blog and WOW! What an amazing reaction! Around 40+ people from all different walks of life came together in Seoul for the love of Instagram and photography.
To be frank I was really nervous at first, does an instameet work with that many people? What if people got lost? What if people were not enjoying it because the walks were too long? About a million of these kind of thoughts raced through my mind. Although space for creativity was limited due to public over crowdedness and couples galore in Naksan Park and Ehwadong, it didn’t really matter. This meet-up enabled me to meet some of the nicest and genuine people within the past few years here in Korea. It was great to hear people’s own personal stories about their inspirations and aspirations in life.
Due to this amazing outcome, I’m gonna have to seriously think about doing another one these photowalks or insta-meetups.
