My brother Milo and his girlfriend, Dee, have been in Korea all week. I have taken them to a palace, a secret garden, tourist shopping, and to all our favorite places to eat. It is now Saturday and with Damian off for the weekend we decided to take them to Namsan Seoul Tower. We went back in the fall but didn’t have a chance to take the cable car up the mountain. We were newbies in the fall and accidentally ended up hiking up the entire mountain not knowing where the cable car was. We were prepared this time!
Cable car ride:
You can get tickets for around $10 to go up to the top and see the view and eat, but the day had other more important plans!
They had misters going which was very nice because although the temperature is only in the 80’s but the humidity is just awful.
People from all over the world place “love locks” along the observation deck to represent eternal love. These benches below are slanted so that you are forced to sit close. And yes those “trees” behind us are made up of thousands of love locks.
Now it’s time for the big moment! Maya had the ring box and when I told her to take it to Milo, she gave it to him as they were putting their lock on railing. As you can see from the picture, Dee was very surprised. It was awesome to be a part of such a special moment in their lives. Of course, she said yes!!
Maya couldn’t resist being in just about every single picture!
After all the excitement, Maya quickly found the bubble machine. She probably stood there for close to half an hour and could have been there all day.
Classic Maya scrunchy face.
After lunch, it was time to sit down for a traditional Korean martial arts performance. One that we had seen and posted about before but Maya definitely had a lot more fun watching it this time around.
After a long day of proposals and bubbles, Maya was exhausted. So much so that she didn’t even last through dinner.
It was a great day and we wish Milo and Dee all the happiness in the world.
