    What Seoul Means to Me

    My name is Ethan Brooke and I am a New Zealander (Kiwi!) who has lived in Seoul for just under two years now. Before I came to Seoul I liked to take photos, Seoul made me want to become a photographer. Seoul has always amazed me with just how big, fast, lively, and beautiful it is. Inspiration comes differently for everyone. For me, my biggest inspiration was, and still is Seoul. It is this place that has inspired me to take more and better photos. I want to be able to share Seoul and let everyone know about how beautiful it is. This is what Seoul means to me. Seoul –…

    Beautiful Bridges of Seoul

    The Han River is famous for flowing right through the centre of Seoul. Being nearly 1km wide though, that can cause some problems. 28 Bridges currently bridge (get it?) the gap between the north and the south of the river.

With the Han being…

I go out two or three nights a week, and just enjoy life without worries. This is my experience of skateboarding in Seoul! I’ve skated in New Zealand before, but that was always with normal skateboards, a cruiser was…

    Exploring at 1am!

    Exceptional boredom and a want to always be trying to do something useful drives me to do some interesting things at times. Tonight I had a totally random theory that I wanted to prove. This is one of my many adventures exploring Seoul! I have a ‘secret’ path from my home to university. While it may not really be secret, it is a place known by few, and used by even fewer. People are often scared to explore. I don’t know why, but they find their routine and they never change it. Maybe they think this road will lead to X destination, but they never test it. Especially if you…
