Trinkets from South Korea
11 Dec 2014 | From Akubi of Hong Kong
Postcards, stickers, a flag, letters, leaves, and other souvenirs - these were some of the surprises in the parcel Akubi sent me. They were from his trip to South Korea last autumn of 2014. The autumn months of Korea are September~November, and this is the most ideal time to visit the country. During this time, the country experiences warm, sunny weather, skies that are cobalt blue and spectacular foliage that is perhaps the biggest draw. Akubi even sent me two leaves for me to see the beautiful autumn colors of Korea.
The postcard enclosed is of the Seoul Tower - a communication and observation tower which marks the highest point in Seoul. It is a 3D postcard that shows two views of the iconic tower. There were also a flag of South Korea, colorful post-its, stickers featuring the Seoul Tower, and a traditional Korean cloth badge. Along with all these is also a Christmas card which contains all his happy wishes and thanks for this year and the next :)
