Saadiqa have you visited Korea before? I need to add MORE to my list haha. As soon as we arrive and I know whats going on its going to become super long

Never been to SoKo, been to Japan. Great place! My bucket list is just as long if not longer as yours. There is so much to do. I plan to do it all and then some. We should make sure we plan our trips together, cause I see you have some of the things I want to do as well.
How excited are you?? 16 days left….so much still to do before then~

I’m pretty excited yes 😀 16 days is just around the corner! I think we should definitely team up and tick things off our bucket list together! I’ve never traveled alone before, or been to S. Korea, so its a new experience entirely. Only went to Singapore as a young kid, remember very little.
