Everyone keeps asking how I like Seoul so far or commenting on how much of an adventure I must be having.
Honestly, it’s been wonderful, but I have yet to be forced outside my comfort level. My apartment is great, my neighborhood is safe, public transportation is easy and clean, and the food is incredible. And all that is wonderful when you’re living somewhere longterm. Sure, adventure is what I seek, but at the end of the day I still like to come home to a comfy bed and a hot cup of tea. Still, everything has just been so…easy.
The one thing, however, that I’m reminded of every time I walk into the staff room at work is the beauty I see in the people. The people I work with are from all walks of life and all have their own adventures and destinies to seek and to share. And I’m so grateful for these wonderful people because the human connections are what shape so much of our adventures and travels wherever we are. You can take a thousand photos of buildings and landscapes, but that one photo that captures the expression of a human soul is the one everyone will notice and usually the one with the best story to tell.
So here’s to the human connections that nurture the soul. Cheers.
