It is now Autumn in Korea and it is the one thing that I can give it credit for. Autumn is absolutely magnificent. It is nothing compared to the Autumn we have in South Africa, simply because the leaves in Korea are breathtaking. As I ride the bus to work, one long road, each tree is a different colour. From reds to orange and yellow and green and I wish it would stay this way forever. Not only are the Autumn leaves something to write home about, the sunsets are absolutely amazing. Every evening, I can stare and appreciate it.
I got off the bus early two days ago to take some photos. The time of day made it difficult to really show off the colours, but I think some of them came out quite well. With a deleted Facebook account, I suddenly wondered “Why am I taking the photos if I can’t show the entire world?” and when I thought about it some more, I realized I should share them here.
This blog has been a great place for me. I have been writing for just over one year, and I know my story is nothing special. It’s the ramblings that go on in my head and the experiences that I go through, but it is also something which makes me feel good about myself. I’ve stuck with it – through the triumph of weight loss to losing control, depression and life here in South Korea.
As promised, here are some photos of the Autumn leaves and sunset so far. I plan to visit some new places and get some more photos soon. These were done with no filter (and I hate that one has to admit that today, with a world full of instagram etc).
