Travel Journal: Daejeon Photos
Hello there, I am back in Daejeon after gallivanting all around Seoul with some excellent guides (super awesome friends of Grace). Seoul is mind-blowingly BIG and diverse. I have some really great memories from the city and I even happened to ‘bump’ into a really dear friend Ben Stamper who just happened to be there at the same time! He lives in the US so it was pretty awesome how we got to meet in this part of the world. I have loads of photos to share from Seoul but thought I’d start by catching up on this photos I took in Daejeon on my first day.
I stayed with Grace in her dorm room at KAIST University’s campus and that’s where these photos start.
One of the first things that I noticed and loved about Korean culture is how people greet each other. When you enter a restaurant, everyone chimes in to say “An-Nyong-Ha-Sye-Yo” which is basically the equivalent of a ‘Namaste’ in India. And then when you leave you are greeted too. I love that. It just feels so warm! You are noticed and appreciated even if you are a stranger.
