Winter is still making its way and while everyday is getting colder and nighttime is freezing, we are then braving this weather to the warmest that we can. Staying indoors is not the main turn of this season, how to spend time outdoors is the game.
Largely of Korean children anticipates winter season not only because of the snowfall but also the winter activities in a wide selection. So, though it’s really freaking chilly and freezing outdoors the leisure activities and winter events will warm you up.
Of the various activities, sledding and skating are the most popular and easy. The gliding over the snow hills and across the rinks is exhilarating.
