The first snow of the year in South Korea

by - March 18, 2021

Hi everyone! How's your day? It's already winter in South Korea! Do you get excited when it is a snow day? We finally had the first snow of the year here in Seoul. The first snowfall of the year is an event that everyone seems to be waiting for but of course, nobody can beat my own excitement! Haha. The first real snowfall of the year is always fun to see.

My husband told me it is snowing outside. I was so happy and excited so when I woke up in the morning, I rushed to the window and peeked outside. I sit next to a window in the room, where I have a great view of the snow just starting to fall. Can you imagine my surprise and excitement when I suddenly saw the place right in front of my window all covered in snow? Here are pictures of the park that you can see right from our window!

I was debating with myself whether to go outside or not because snow is gonna be so cold however I couldn’t sleep anymore, so I took a shower, I got dressed up quickly and finally, I decided to go out.

Here are more photos of my winter wonderland. I feel kinda waste not to blog because I did take some pretty pictures from where I stay in. So, yeah enjoy!

Walking around here you will come across many works of art.

Lots of birds that come, colorful leaves that fall from the trees, and add to the beauty of nature.

The plant is covered with thick snowflakes.

Do you want to build a snowman? Come on let's go and play!

One thing that I would also say, about winter in South Korea, is that the temperatures didn’t drop as low as I thought they would. But the wind is crazy here. I think that was really the most difficult thing to deal with during the winter. The strong and cold wind, that gets under your head, and under your skin, freezes your ears, your nose, and can make your nose runny. That was a hard battle.

I came from the tropical country of Indonesia where I only get to experience two kinds of weather - summer and rainy season. Growing up in the tropics, we naturally don’t have snow. That’s why you could imagine how happy I was when snow had started to fall in Korea! This experience will always have a special place in my heart forever. Unfortunately, that afternoon the snowfall stopped. The next day, it’s gone. Hope will be back soon.

I will end it up with my shameless selfie since the lighting is just perfect! The cold never bothered me anyway. Haha.
