It’s no secret that I am very interested in Korean history and culture. This is the primary reason why in my travel bucket list, South Korea was the first country I listed that I want to visit. Last year, I was able to cross out that item off my list. That trip to South Korea marked my 1st overseas travel and what a gamble it was considering I had to apply for a visa.
South Korea has a very rich in history and it has done a very good job of preserving its historic places. The presence of several palaces in the heart of Seoul amidst modern infrastructure is a testament to that. Of the five (5) palaces found in Jongno, my favorite would have to be the Changdeokgung Palace. The palace complex is especially lovely during autumn.
While walking around, I chanced upon these quarters with a very ornate roofing. Imagine the detail placed in designing them.
