Springtime in Seoul: Cherry Blossoms
I wish I could tell you that we went to one of those fancy cherry blossom festivals in Seoul, but alas due to late planning and a desire to not be near crowds, we took my Korean teacher’s advice and went somewhere a little less conventional.
We went to the Seoul Cemetery. I will say that cemeteries here aren’t like what you think of in the States, and they’re very pretty and not that creepy. There’s a beautiful park before you enter the area with gravestones, so you can visit without going near them.
There were a lot of people there but it wasn’t so crowded that we couldn’t get a few good photos! Also, it was super windy and cold that day so we just walked around for 10 minutes and then we went to Mikkeller to have some beers. Ha.
