Every couple of months or so, I get bit with the travel bug. This week, I’m absolutely itching to have my passport stamped in some exotic destination. However, here I sit in an Americanized version of a French cafe painfully aware that my now expired passport is safely tucked away in a file box somewhere. Sigh. It doesn’t help that I’m reliving my experience in Seoul, Korea at The Sound of Center City blog. There’s got to be a name for feeling homesick for a place that is not your home. Somebody help me out here… anybody.

I can remember the first thing I saw upon arriving in Seoul that turned me into a typical American tourist {shamelessly staring while fishing thru my messenger bag for a camera, a phone, anything that would allow me to capture the moment}. A wedding was being held at the hotel where we stayed and, oh my goodness. I don’t know if they were bridesmaids or just attendees, but they were breath taking… like little China dolls.

Ok.. the image is terrible, but a 15 hour flight combined with a moderate sense of discretion and I was lucky to get the back of their heads.

Here are few more pictures of these traditional Korean dresses {obviously not taken by myself}.

This is a more traditional Korean wedding gown. The bright colors, the full skirts….. absolutely stunning!

Here’s a more modern take on the hanbok.

I would no doubt look a little out of place if I showed up at the next church pot luck wearing one of these babies. But a girl can dream, right?

좋은 하루 되세요 everyone! {Have a good day}
