We fell head-over-heels in love with Seoul.
We were so unprepared and without expectations.
The three main things that lead us to South Korea were:
1 – a Netflix documentary film called Twinsters about identical twins separated at birth who are reunited and travel to South Korea where they were born, in search of their birth mother.
2 – Two of the friendliest and sweetest girls who happened to pop into our guesthouse in Sikkim in India. They were Korean.
3 – Flights from Japan were £35 each
Of course these thing merely piqued our interest and lead us to research further into what seemed to be an interesting and very different place to visit.
