We spent yesterday afternoon hanging out at another ancient Korean palace, this one from the 15th century. (Life is hard, I know.) Changdeokgung is also a World Heritage Site, it is that amazing.
And I finally remembered to bring my selfie-stick (thanks, Mom!) so get ready for lots of photo-bombing some otherwise beautiful buildings and scenery. (Also, I cannot figure out the selfie-stick yet. I swear, I look at something amazing, turn around to stick myself in the photo with said selfie-stick, and bam, the background is nothing like what I was trying to frame. So bear with me.)
Also, traveler note-to-self: when going to remote yet huge and sprawling secret gardens, DO bring a portable potty so you are not running a mile in sweltering heat and humidity, toddler in tow, when nature reminds the little one it’s time to go!
