Goodbye Seoul 2
There comes a moment for every exchange student's life when it's time to go back home. Well, the time has come for me to leave Seoul and move on with my life. That sounds fun, right? It's really weird to think that I'm no longer gonna walk the same streets everyday, see Koreans, eat bulgogi and, I don't know, it's hard to embrace change when the city you're living is a great one.

But hey! I enjoyed my time in Seoul like anything else in my life. I partied like never before, made friends that I intend to keep for the rest of my life, visited some great districts, it was quite the best thing that has ever happened to me. Being away from home really helped me, I feel more mature, wiser, stronger. Better.

I chose to do my last shoot in Seoul in this street that I cross everyday on my way to Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU). It has its charm, I've been saving it for last. I'm wearing my always reliable parka (from H&M Korea), the greatest see-through shirt from Codes Combine Korea, along with some pretty cool animal print sneakers. Damn! It's a certainty that I'll miss shopping in Korea, haha. I suppose it's all for the best, right? Everything has to end, because if it doesn't end, it's forever. Thanks  Seoul, you were great and I'll always treasure you in my heart.

// Llega un momento en la vida de todo alumno de intercambio cuando es momento de regresar a casa. Pues, mi momento de abandonar Seoul llegó y debo seguir con mi vida. Suena divertido ¿no? Es súper raro pensar que ya no voy a caminar por esas calles todos los días, ver coreanos, comer bulgogi y, no sé, es difícil abrazar el cambio cuando la ciudad en que vives es una de las buenas.

Pero ¡hey! Disfruté mi estadía en Seoul como nada en mi vida. Fiestée como nunca, hice amigos que planeo conservar para toda la vida, visité distritos bien padres, fue la mejor cosa que me ha pasado. Estar lejos de casa me ayudó mucho, me siento más maduro, más sabio, más fuerte. Mejor.

Elegí hacer mis últimas fotos de Seoul en esta calle que cruzo todos los días para ir a Sungkyunkwan Universtiy (SKKU). Tiene su encanto, la estuve salvando para el final. Estoy usando mi siempre útil parka (comprada en H&M Korea), la camisa transparente más buena onda de Codes Combine Korea, junto a unos tennis muy padres de estampado animal. ¡Dios! Voy a extrañar comprar en Korea, jaja. Supongo que todo es para mejor, ¿cierto? Todo debe terminar, porque si no termina, es eterno. Gracias Seoul, fuiste grandiosa y siempre te tendré en mi corazón.
