Before I came to Korea, I had so many things I wanted to see and do. I wanted to hike every mountain to experience the magnificent views and feel on top of the world. Two mountains later and I felt that I wasn’t cut out for it. I did not have to search far though, because I found my way along the river.
Coming towards the end of my exchange programme, and here I mark my lucky 8th spot along the Hangang. I’ve scattered pieces of my heart in each of the different spots I’ve strolled along as I watched the city light up. I’d enjoy the quietness of Hangang just enough, until I came back up to rejoin the bustle of the peak drive time on the highways. I am reminded that there will always be a place to retreat to wherever I may be; and that while it may be good to make plans, something better could be waiting further along the river
if I just surrender and let go.
