Our year in pictures

I can't believe that it has been nine months since we left Korea and we both still miss the people, food, and lifestyle. It really was one of the best years of our lives. A lot has happened since we left Korea. We went backpacking around South East Asia and then I returned home to South Africa briefly before jetting off to Sweden to start a Masters programme. Oliver is in South Africa doing what he loves, photographing and has also started his own blog. We are still together and still happy but every now and then we both miss Korea terribly. I thought it would be nice to show you our year in pictures, or at least a glance of our year in pictures. Enjoy!

Then we left on a jet plane :( But despite all of the amazing food we ate and awesome places we saw the thing that stands out the most are the friends we made. We are still on contact with many of them and have planned trips to see each other!
