Streets Of Seoul

by Brenna Holeman
Seoul, South Korea
There are things that I simply cannot find in a small, cold, Canadian city. For example, I can’t find an area that covers kilometres of streets filled with little art cafes, galleries, unique shops and open markets, much like the amazing Samcheongdong neighbourhood in Seoul. I think that one of the reasons I can picture myself permanently settling down in either Europe or Asia is because of those continents’ abundance of areas like that, areas where I could spend the day wandering, buying fresh produce, stopping in a coffeeshop, and meeting up with my best friend to pick out yet another cute dress.

You made it to Samcheongdong!! I love that neighborhood….it’s one of the first places I visited here, and I remember thinking how much it looked like Paris (especially that big tree-lined street)!

Yes, the area was great! Naomi, I’ll change the name in the post; I forgot what that particular area was called but I knew it was close to Insadong…
