Vacation to South Korea | Part I: Gyeongbokgung

Still not back to normal after 16+ hours of flying back from South Korea but willing to put up a few photos from the trip.  These were taken at Gyeongbokgung in Seoul.  The palace was first constructed in 1395, burned and abandoned for three centuries and reconstructed in 1867 during the Joseon Dynasty.  The details  on the eaves of the buildings were brilliant and vibrant.  The history rich, terrifying and impressive. You can read a little about it here.

Stay tuned for more pictures from the palace, pictures from around Seoul, hiking, food and island hopping...

[Edit* ] Why I chose South Korea -- My best friend from college got hitched and invited friends to her wedding in Seoul!
