Seoul Searching

Wow. What a crazy few weeks it’s been – again!
I started writing this post days and days ago but as things started filling up my to do list it got pushed to the bottom and I forgot about it. A LOT has changed.. let me fill you in ☺️
1) I left my job!!!!!! 
2) I started my new job!!!!!!
3) I finally got to visit South Korea and it was incredible ❤
4) I will be a married woman in 43 days!!!!!
I’ll start with number 3. I never really had a desire to visit anywhere in Asia (ironic), apart from Seoul and Tokyo. Don’t ask me why because I’m not really sure, they were just these huge, buzzing cities that were so different to anywhere I’d been before and I had to experience it! We were only there for a few days but I fell in love – hard. I can’t wait to go back already. The food was amazing, the shopping was as incredible as I’d heard and the general feel of the city was so exciting and I just felt comfortable there. 

We love to absorb some history whenever we visit somewhere new so I made a list (I’m good at those) of places we could check out, one of them being Changdeokgung Palace. The architecture of the buildings was beautiful and the grounds were surrounded by a ‘Secret Garden’ (which wasn’t so secret because there were hoards of Chinese/English/American tourists wandering around them, but there you go). We managed to get ahead of the crowds by opting out of the guided tour and in turn got some great photos, it really was quite breathtaking there and we were super lucky with the weather – the whole weekend was warm and sunny without a cloud in the sky ☀️

Seoul is definitely somewhere I’d like to go back to, 2 days just wasn’t enough time to squeeze everything in but I’m so glad we were able to pop over for a quick visit. 
The day after we got back was also pretty exciting – I started my new job! It’s weird to be doing something so familiar (I’m still in the same industry) yet so different. My new colleagues are lovely and the building has proper toilets!!! Yes, you read that correctly. No more holes in the ground for me 😂
But in all seriousness, I was a little bit nervous about the change. My job had been one of the few things to remain constant over the last few years and I was worried how I’d feel after letting it go.. but I can honestly say I’m fine. I don’t really know what I was expecting to happen but I’m still alive so I must be doing something right!!! 
Some change is good though! I’m alone for dinner tonight and when that usually happens I cook myself some pasta and snuggle up on the sofa watching other people’s lives on YouTube. Tonight I decided to go to a real life restaurant – ALONE!!!!! Dun dun duuunnnnn!!!!!!! Now some of you may be thinking “are you being serious, what’s the big deal I do it all the time” but this is something I’ve never ever done. I guess I was scared to. The thought of sitting by myself in a busy place where everyone is with someone made me feel a bit self conscious, I’m the kind of person that needs the safety of friends or family around me in social situations. So I’m pretty proud of myself tonight.. 😏 and I’m feeling like I can tackle anything! 
Apart from the remainder of our wedding planning, I’m kind of sick of that now 😜 XO
