Spring, 2006. Geumo, South Korea.
Talking about spring time, it always brings back my memory to 2006. That was the first time I went abroad. I had no idea what was South Korea about and really didn’t care about it. But it was that starstruck moment when the bus that brought us to this school arrived in the front gate. It’s cherryblossom trees along the front road of the school! The flower petals were falling from the trees and it felt like a soft snow although i’ve never felt a real snow. It’s so pretty beyond words.
It was a really memorable 2 weeks in my life. Everywhere we went just full of blossoming cherryblossom trees. And when we held farewell, the cherryblossoms were completely fell off of the trees as if saying good bye to us. But I felt so lucky because later did i know that cherryblossom flower has a really short life. I think it’s a fate that i went there just right when the flowers bloom, that makes South Korea has a soft spot in my heart now. Thank you for the beautiful Cherryblossoms, Spring!
