HELLO KOREA 2022/2023: Windmill in Sinchon, Seoul
[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]
I’ve always held a fondness for windmills – they symbolize my modest aspirations to explore every city I visit, with the hope of stumbling upon one during my journeys. While the Netherlands has long been a dream destination, I find it important to fully embrace the treasures each country offers before embarking on that particular adventure.
Reflecting on my past travels, I vividly recall encountering a windmill in Geoje (video) back in 2016, an experience that truly thrilled me. Subsequently, during my expedition to Daejeon, the sight of windmills brought me immense joy.
Therefore, when I learned of the presence of one in Sinchon, I was overwhelmed with happiness. This journey materialized after a three-year period marked by the challenges of the pandemic, magnifying its significance and making every moment exceptionally rewarding.
