Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it. – Lao Tzu
The 5th Annual Water Gun Festival just happens to be a stone throws away from my apartment in Seoul. It's nothing new to walk at of my building and find random events being held EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND in my neighborhood of the 16th largest city in the world! This weekend, however, coming back from several meetings with clients, I randomly stumble across this event coming out of the subway just heading home to continue the long editing process of my friend Katie and Levi's wedding video that they were so kind to invite me to in Kauai, Hawaii. Also, I can't thank Bret enough for insisting to stay an extra week and so kindly offered to pay my flight change fee (yeah, Katie I should've listened to you from the beginning, lol). It was also the first time in more than 7-years I got to see my best friend Jesse and finally meet both his wife and his daughter! *I know I've fallen behind on my blogging and hope that once I get past the estimated 100-plus hours of video editing to catch up and write about my travels through Northern Africa and areas of the Middle East, but until them I hope you enjoy the Vlogs of the Sinchon Water Gun Festival (신촌물총축제) and maybe I'll see you there next year, or who knows, maybe I'll be traveling and living in a different part of the world by that point! Cheers! For more information on both the Water Gun Festival and others check out the information below...
