Joy in Jeju: Manjanggul

I woke up the next morning ready to go out and have my first adventure on the island. Jeju offers many varieties of things to see and do, and it is as if every part of the island has something on the map. You can choose from kitschy museums like the "Trick Art Museum" or the "Chocolate Museum", but I steered more towards the natural wonders of the island, since I feel this is what made Jeju a unique place to visit. One of these special natural artifacts are lava caves, especially the Manjanggul site.

I will get into the details later, but know that I was very excited for this as I have never been inside a lava-tube cave.

My Boyfriend's Backyard

First, let's take a look at a traditional summer food called Samgyetang. You are suppose to eat it three times in the summer. I had my share of it when I was at JH's house a few weekends ago, and his mom made it fresh for us.

Seoul Rain a Video

It's a little poetic and on the short side, but I like it! If you like it too why not share it with your pals. But really this video captures how the rain can make you contemplate life and all it's wonders.

June Fieldtrip: Bugs and Lizards Oh My!

If you have ever wondered whether Seoul children get out there and play in the dirt or pick at bugs, well look no further. For our school took the first grade to a grand bug adventure up near Namyangju. The kids hopped off the bus all sleepy eyed and were walked into a forested area where they dropped off their bags.

The Naminara Republic Experience Part 2

All that walking and site seeing worked up an appetite and we were ready for lunch. We came upon the section with cafes and restaurants. Here we managed to discover that there was a place offering organic servings or curry and other rice-like meals. It was a little tough to find, but we managed.

The Naminara Republic Experience Part 1

I have always enjoyed road trips in Korea, because you often spot something in the distance that is odd or different. The above picture is an example of this and was found on my recent mini-road trip to Namiseo or Nami Island that I took with JH. For those not able to take a car trip I will provide public transportation information.

Nami Island is not some little place out over the Yellow or East Sea, for it is an island in the middle of a river, the North Han River. The following are several maps that will help you see why it is so special.

Dream Forest (북서울꿈의숲) Video

Before I launch into the photographic story of my visit into the Dream Forest, first let me share with you the video.


April School Field Trip


Spring in Olympic Park


Last Sunday I declared it a "buddy day" and decided to meet my friend from my old neighborhood to check out what has bloomed in Olympic Park. The above pictures were taken on my ride to the park in JH's car.
