C and I had no slowing to our energy and vigor in the dead of winter, which was refreshing for me. I can tend to be a little mole in a hole when cold.
I loved how Christie was always scouring her travel books for information, finding new ideas for us to do, not leaving it all up to be to be the tour guide and entertainment.
On our last day together, we went on a walk near the old city wall, as Seoul used to be a walled-in city, a fortress to fortify the residents within.
As our calves screamed up the steep hill, but we were rewarded with a staggering view across the city:
We discoverd a sad, lonely teddy bear near the top,
And the winding wall eventually opened up a few arched doorways so that we could enter the park at the top of the walk.
I remember feeling a jolt of surprise on this clear day, that once again I was reminded that adventures are abundant, big or small they are out there for the taking.
Seoul Tower peeped through the trees like a beacon, reminding us what part of the city we were string through.
We worked up quite an appetite, and with a little map consultation decided we were in walking distance to the delicious Kwang Jang market.
Mung bean pancakes, huge bowls of mandu-soup, yes please!
Until we meet again my darling, I love you and every bit of extra strength and bonding we gained from this tremendous trip.
I'll continue to eat enough kimchi for the both of us!
