가랑비에 옷 젖는 줄 모른다: The little things add up, as does the rain in a drizzle, so that the little things amount to a big thing.

~Korean saying

In an attempt to capture my last moments in this beautiful country, I thought I’d add a photo for every day in May. The images may not be so significant, but altogether they add up to “a big thing”.

    Just found your blog. These photos were amazing! I hope someday I can visit Korea. Did you try those roasted silkworm? :D

  2. Hi Sarah, Thank you! Korea was an awesome place to live and my husband and I enjoyed our 4 years there. The silkworms? No, I’m not that adventurous when it comes to food, but my hubby did try them. Said they were juicy. Do you have a Korean background? Friends who are Korean?

    Wow 4 years! You must’ve love Korea to stay that long. :) I don’t think I can force myself to eat silkworms. :D I just love Korea in general. I was born and raised in the Philippines. I moved in the UK almost 9 years ago. Korea is one of the countries in my bucket list. :)
