The weather is absolutely beautiful! It is perfect Spring weather here in Korea and as much as I want to continue to be stay at home and watch Netflix girl, I knew I had to take advantage of my limited time in Korea and the weather. I decided to go to Songdo Central Park which has lots of things around it.
U-do is a little island off of an island. When we were in Jeju-do we decided to take a day trip to U-do and see what this little island had to offer. To get there we took a bus from Jeju City to the port and hopped on a ferry. The island’s name means cow, apparently it is shaped like one.
One of the cool things about Jeju is that it was once a volcano and you can find remnants of this all around the island. Manjanggulsa Cave is one of the longest lava tubes in the world. We decided that this would be something very interesting to see and so we hopped on a bus. When we arrived, we actually had to walk for a bit near some fields, and in very high heat. When we reached the cave we…
As this title suggests we got a little lost. Took a bus, missed the stop and got off somewhere unknown. But no worries, we just had to walk a little and voila! We found the sight we had been trying to get too. We live in a country with a history of Buddhist culture and an island full of legends about mythical creatures and moments that are hard to believe.
If you live in Korea and need a vacation I highly suggest going where the locals go and that is Jeju. It is the perfect place to go and relax. It has the best of everything, small cities, beaches, ocean views, nature, mountains, volcanic caves and food.
We were told it was “Korea’s Hawaii” and when we landed we were absolutely sure it had lived up to that name. The second we exited the airport we were met with a wave of humidity and a view of palm trees, it was like we had really arrived in a tropical paradise. We were ready to spend six glorious days exploring the island, breathing in fresh air (sometimes a rarity where we live in Korea) and relaxing.
This is a different post for this blog, but this blog is meant to show my experiences living abroad and one of the experiences I was so excited to take part in was the Women’s March. I found a sister march to the Women’s March on Washington in Seoul and I immediately changed my plans in order to take part in this event.
Autumn in Korea, comes with all the delights, including a pumpkin flavoured treat (no, not a PSL). Korea is an amazing place for fall, especially if you live near the mountains. You can look outside your window and see the orange and yellow covered mountains and maybe even go for a hike through the crunchy, coloured leaves. Some of my friends and I decided to take full advantage of the beautiful weather and go off in search of apples. We…
This is my second winter here in Korea and I spent a lot of time last winter searching for a public skating rink. I finally found one this year!
One of my friends had explored a little surfing town, called Ingu-ri which is near YangYang on the East Coast of Korea, in October and was planning on going back because she said it was an amazing place to go. She described it as this chill haven on the East Coast of Korea, where everyone walked around in wetsuits and men had long hair. She said it had the sort of surfer vibe that one thinks of, when you think…
