    Gapyeong: Nami Island & Home

    The morning of our trip to Nami Island brought snow, fat fluffy snow!!! It was the fluffiest I’d seen in all my (almost) 29 years of life living in summer. I was so happy. Here’s a video I posted when it happened. So. Fat. And. Fluffy. Ahhhhhh..!!! The morning sun and the bus we took to get from Seoul to Gapyeong.

Going back to hot & humid Singapore has been a sad affair ever since…
