A PALACE, A PARADE, AND A PERFECT STRANGER

Though we live in Korea now, we in no way think that we are above being tourists. We plan to treat our time here more as a overlong vacation, not just life as usual. We may have to partake in mundane, everyday life responsibilities, but we are going to make the most of our time here as we can.

We decided to start our tourist exploring with a palace. Disney taught me to believe in the magic of palaces and castles. I want to visit them wherever we travel. The Alhambra and Palacio Real in Spain, St. Georges Castle in Portugal, and even Biltmore estate in North Carolina, all left me in awe of their history and splendor. With stars in my eyes, we set off for Gyeongbokgung Palace in the center of Seoul.
