A Sunny Evening at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza

It is almost mind-boggling to think that almost 4 years ago I came to Seoul for the first time. During that time, I had a view from my AirBnb overlooking the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP). Shortly after my arrival, I fell immediately in love with Seoul. It is around that same time that I started writing this very blog! The posts about that time are all archived away somewhere on this site, in a place we may never find. Oh wait, I just found one about the DDP. You can see it by clicking here!

Last night I found myself back at the DDP for work. It was as though the past-me could picture the life I have for myself now. That’s what made me so excited… Somehow she knew I’d be back here. Who knew it would be for helping my company film Holographic Reality video content! I doubt she knew, she was drunk on the floor of her AirBnb drinking grape flavoured soju.

All of these memories came flooding back to me last night and I gave my present-day self a little pat on the back. I wanted to thank my past self for always seeking the opportunities that felt right and for following her curiosities. If I keep along this path, who knows where I might end up!? Most likely back on the floor drinking soju from a slightly higher shelf.

All photos were shot on my iPhone 12 ✌🏼
