Oh South Korea! You Were Amazing in 2015… I Miss You!

IMG_8644In August 2015, I took my farthest and most exciting trip at that time. I went to South Korea! I don’t want that memory to ever leave me, as it was truly an amazing time! I’m re-posting my blog post to relish my experience, and give my newer followers the opportunity to hear about South Korea from my eyes.

Grab a bowl of popcorn, and a cup of tea, coffee, water or wine. At the end of this long piece, you’d feel like you were on my trip with me! So, buckle up!

Any opportunity to explore a different culture has my full attention! I’m sitting on the Haeundae beach in Busan, South Korea, getting my feet dipped in the Pacific Ocean as I write this! Bliss. Korea is a beautiful place! The pictures on Google are real. To think that she went through a horrible war about 65 years ago, she bounced back pretty nicely! Their growth and economic development can only make me pray that Nigeria and other 3rd world countries achieve speedy recovery from our corrupt governments and relatively stagnant economies.

I’ve had the time of my life in Seoul and Busan. Yes my curious ears, here are my twenty takeaways:

  1. Black women are rare:
    Everywhere I went, people were openly IMG_8616curious, staring at me, and asking for my pictures. I’d pose for a personal picture and a flock of photographers will come and take my picture! My group joked that I could make a living by charging some money for my picture to be taken.
    The most interesting thing happened when I went to the beach. I had my swimsuit on for a dip in the ocean, and this conversation ensued:

    2 Korean Girls (2KG): Oh my God! Your body is so beautiful!IMG_8984

    Me: (Aghast) Oh! Thanks!

    2KG: Are those your real boobs? They’re so big!

    Me: (Hahahahahahaha) Yes!! And you find much bigger where I come from.

    2KG: Wow!! We don’t have any boobs. A and B cups mostly.

    Me: Aw, I wish I could gift you some :=D

    2KG: Can we touch them?

    Me: Oh, go ahead!

    2KG: Uhh, Ahhh, it’s really real! Lol.

    No joke, this was how this went down, and it was fun!

Oh South Korea! You Were Amazing!! Camsamida!!!

Grab a bowl of popcorn, and a cup of tea, coffee, water or wine. At the end of this long piece, you’d feel like you were on my trip with me! So, buckle up!

Any opportunity to explore a different culture has my full attention! I’m sitting on the Haeundae beach in Busan, South Korea, getting my feet dipped in the Pacific Ocean as I write this, bliss ( I will post this in Atlanta, but at this point in the post, I’m in Korea)! It is by no means cheap to travel and enjoy a rich culture for 10 days, 14 hours ahead of your home, and a 16- hour flight away, but it’s completely worth every penny. All thanks to God, my parents and the different scholarships I received, I was able to afford this trip. I pray I have the opportunity to do it again as I surely want to!

I’ve had the time of my life in Seoul and Busan. Yes my curious ears, I will share it all with you 😀

  1. Black women are rare:
    Living, as a minority could be a little challenging, not in Korea. Everywhere I went, people were openly curious, staring at me, and asking for my pictures.
