Gapyeong: Le Petit France

I’ve wanted to visit Le Petit France ever since Running Man filmed an episode there. Korea’s obsession with The Little Prince hasn’t waned since I first visited the country more than a decade ago, it’s popularity a testament to the timelessness of the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry classic. The place was highly populated by tourists, but Ottie and I stayed past a few buses (which frequent every hour) and so found some quiet spots in between for pictures.
