Bogildo Island

Bogildo Night (and a rooftop dawn)

Walking at night.  On a tiny island in Korea.

Bogildo Magic

 

I knew two things about Bogildo Island before pulling up to it on an old Korean ferry: it was covered in pine trees, and compared to the other West Sea Islands Norbert Paxton wrote of in the Rough Guide, it was a ”well-kept secret.”


Boats to Bogildo

One of my professors in a first-year university class told us that writers are lucky.  Through the process of recording and thus reflecting on our experiences, he said, we get to “live twice.”  Somehow September has appeared and the Coco Busan blog is still riding the Coco July Vacation wave, as I’ve got an island called Bogildo to show you, a magic beach called Yesongri, and a tea plantation I hiked up into on the final morning of my week away. 


Going South (and west, and north, and back)

Back home to my Busan pad after an eight-day vacay into the south of South Korea…land of islands, mountains (okay, this whole country is covered in mountains), volcanoes, trees so lush they appear to burst from the countryside, flat-stone, black-rock, and gold-sand beaches, caves and waterfalls, too much rice, and permed ajummas renting floor mats to stretch out on for the night.
