The Han River Treats Me Well


Joy in Jeju: Waterfalls

The sky opened up over the clouds when we caught our ferry back to Jeju from Udo. It was such a peaceful and eye catching sight that it made the day complete. Amongst the crowd I felt like the only one understanding the beauty before us.

Joy in Jeju: A Day at the Beach

One of the major reasons I wanted to go to Jeju was to spend a day at the beach. It's summer and I for one enjoy the hot weather because it pushes you to want to jump into a cool pool of water. However, Seoul seems to lack in this concept of public places to swim. Sure there are several along the Han river, but just a simple local place to go take a dive is out of the question.

Deciding which beach to visit on Jeju presents itself as quite a task. According to JejuLife.net there are about 13 to choose from, some of which being secluded, others with different color sand and some that are near local attractions. However, since we were close to Udo island I decided to head over there and enjoy the white sand it had to offer.

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.

Joy in Jeju: Arrival

I left Gimpo, Seoul last Tuesday and headed to Jeju island. Gimpo airport is significantly smaller than it's Incheon counterpart. There were a few shops and restaurants but generally it is a lot more simple.

As I waited to board my plan, Jin Air, I thought about how this vacation was going to go. I refreshed my memory of essential Korean I would need to use and got to know the layout of Jeju via a map on my Android phone.

I'm Past My 1,000th Post! Tom Video



Wow! Already I have made over 1,000 posts on this blog. I suppose it is inevitable, and so I am celebrating with the above video I made of Tom the cat. Really, though I made it because I wanted to figure out an editing technique in Final Cut Pro X. The software is a lot easier to use than previous versions, but my lack of video-editing knowledge makes things a bit tough.

ASYAAF: Student Art Work at Hongik University

Going on till August 22nd is an Art Festival featuring young and upcoming artists alongside those who have been around longer. At Hongik University the ASYAAF (Asian Students and Young Artists Art Festival) brings us artwork from different varieties and tastes. I visited this exhibition and found myself enjoying the array of artworks on display.

Patbingsu Quest: Hongdae

It's still summer, despite the rain, and I am still on the hunt for a great patbingsu. You can go and check out my other finds here, here, and here. As you know I was in Hongdae a while ago, and I saw some great things.
