Spring Flower Festival at Yeouido Park

It officially became Spring a few weeks ago and with that comes the season of warmth and flowers! Since I arrived in Korea towards the later end of Winter, trees were pretty barren and flowers were something you had to go out of your way to find. For some reason, I didn’t expect Korea to ...
