South Korea Daily 2

With half of my Intagram feed going to Japan to marvel at the sakura blossom or to admire the red colors of the autumn, I am happily keeping South Korea – with equally gorgeous cherry time and fall colors – to myself.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Names

I simply love words. The magic of connected letters has captivated me since I was a child. Since then, I have always been surrounded by books: novels when I was growing up, books on strategy and economics when I was studying, books on self-development and growth now, when I am done with degrees (with an occasional history reading, like the book on Cuba that was my vacation reading binge).

When I am not reading (and not working, or writing in my blog or IG), the magic of words still captures me on the streets. I have a lot of pictures with street signs, hashtags and city graffiti walls that have captured my imagination in different cities during different trips. For this week’s photo challenge, Names, I have chosen words with coffee from last year’s Roland Garros.
