Spring is finally here in Seoul!
We have been long awaiting the famous cherry blossoms and light jacket weather. The city is at full bloom and the smell from the blossoms fills Yonsei University campus.
Seoul is a great place to find beautiful hiking trails since the city lays in a valley surrounded by mountains. Every semester, CIEE takes a half day trip up to the summits of Inwangsan to look over Seoul. We were lucky enough to have an amazing, clear day for our hike this semester!
Every year, the Han River Park hosts Seoul's Cherry Blossom Festival. The park is filled with families, couples, and friends enjoying the flowers, green grass, and bike paths along the river. It is so much fun to watch everyone (including natives to Seoul) appreciate the beauty of the city.
Midterms are coming up next week and CIEE and other Yonsei students are studying hard to prepare the the exams. This is always a stressful time no matter where you are in the world. Everyone back home, wish us luck!
