K & I make it a point to travel at least once each year. I would have preferred the number 2 but alas, time is certainly not on our side with both of us struggling with our own schedules most of the time. (Need to keep my wanderlust under check!) This year, we have chosen Korea to be our destination for our Summer vacation! Annyeong~ ^^v
First up, Busan!
Busan was our least favorite city simply because it was so hard to communicate over there since few knew English. We also had a hard time getting a cab everywhere & even if we did, it often ended up in traffic jams. *shakes head in dismay*
Next stop, Jeju!
We traveled out to the Udo Island for a half-day trip. There, we rented a tandem bicycle to make our way around the coasts. A very, very lovely island full of adventures & wonders! A pity we only managed a fifth of it before the last ferry back.
We fell so deeply in love with Jeju. The entire province was just so incredibly beautiful & welcoming! The skies were the bluest shade of blue I have ever seen, the waters clear & inviting, the weather cooling with a touch of the Sun’s gentle warmth (on the less sunny days). I definitely want to return here again one day.
Our last stop was Seoul. Both K & I aren’t holiday-shopping fanatics. We prefer to walk around at our own pace & busk in the local culture.
A very briefly narrated post but that’s it! There are obviously many noteworthy moments in Korea. Like another book to my collection, flipping through these pages of memories, I particularly like the paragraph where K & I were singing ‘Country Road’ in the car while driving up the mountain. All these memories I’ll keep close & fondly to my heart.
