This is an entry in my diary that I wrote yesterday morning. I wrote this as soon as I woke up and I just want to post it here. I enjoy reading personal blogs and blogs that are raw thoughts, so I thought I’d have a go at it!
This day, two months ago, I was getting ready to go to Seoul for one month. On June 28th, I boarded my flight from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi and from Abu Dhabi to Incheon South Korea.
I had the best & craziest month of my life. I met amazing people and seriously fell in love with Korea. A month flew by so fast, it felt like two weeks.
On the 28th of July, the torturous pain began because I was leaving Seoul.
I knew from the very start that saying goodbye to the people I met would be hard, but I didn’t predict that I would be so attached to South Korea. I felt like I was saying goodbye to my home. That I would be going to a foreign land. That I would never return.
Today is the 28th of August. I have been back in London for a month. Not one day has gone past where I haven’t thought about Korea.
I have plans to return to Korea next year, but until then, I will have an empty void in my heart, soul and mind. That void will be filled when I return to Korea. Until then, I can only reminisce.
