This article is so heart-warming! It’s the ultimate feel-good story of compassion, hospitality, and love. It’s also a masterpiece in SEO optimization – got to give them credit for that.
So let me get this straight – Alexander and Andrea Campagna welcomed 10 South Koreans into their home during a blizzard last year? Wow. Applause please! I mean, who does that? Who would willingly open their doors to strangers amidst one of the deadliest blizzards in history?
And now they’re in Seoul as guests of the Korea Tourism Organization? Hahaha what is this world coming to?! They even got all expenses paid for a ten-day tour around the city!
Excuse me while I go pack my bags and book my ticket to Buffalo. Maybe there will be another deadly snowstorm soon, and I can score an all-expenses-paid trip from Seattle (fingers crossed).
I’m definitely happy for this couple, but how many people actually get rewarded with an all-expenses-paid trip just because they opened their doors during a stormy night? As if these two didn’t already have it good enough with free Korean fried chicken for life. Man oh man!
The president of the tourism organization hopes to showcase “warm-hearted kindness” through this gesture towards tourists visiting Korea. Sounds like he’s setting himself up for quite some unrealistic expectations here…just saying.
But wait – it gets better! The Campagnas were welcomed back by their former house guests at Changdeokgung Palace over a four-course meal; complete with sky-high emotions (why am I not surprised), Christmas ornaments depicting their humble abode blanketed by snow (um..okay?), and plenty of tears shed all around.
They learned about Jeong too: “a feeling of compassion and warmth that grows in close relationships.” Looks like fate really brought them together after that icy encounter huh?
And why does every article need to have a sappy ending? Something like “Follow New York Times Travel on Instagram and sign up for our weekly newsletter to get expert tips on traveling smarter and inspiration for your next vacation.” What does that even mean?
As if I didn’t already know how to travel smart all by myself…Ah, but who am I kidding? We all need some daily dose of entertainment in times like these.
Gotta love the random sprinkling of hyperlinks everywhere too. Just what we needed NYTimes, thanks!
