This past week has been a busy one! After returning from Jeju, our school resumed the night schedule. While the night schedule is definitely easier to manage, it was still a busy week.
I finally had time to sit and organize all my pictures! I figured, instead of writing down step by step what we did in Jeju, I’ll just highlight all the different places we were able to visit! That will be much easier and a lot less typing and reading! I will say though that Jeju was beautiful! The city parts of Jeju look like typical Korea, but once you get to the mountains or the coast, you can get lost in the beauty of everything and forget where you are. That was truly the highlight of the trip. Jeju, known for its beauty, oranges, chocolates, and great seafood, was just the perfect escape during Seollal!
So, please enjoy all the pictures below! 🙂
On the bus ride at the beginning of the trip!
From the bus ride, we took a 2 hr ferry to Jeju! The way there wasn’t bad but we definitely felt the boat swaying on the way back! Overall, the ferry was nice and comfortable though!
Dragon Head Rock, Jeju
Bijarim Forest (UNESCO Site), Jeju
My love for horses.
Manjanggul Lava Tubes. The caves were beautiful to walk through!
Hamdeok Beach, a beautiful little area of Jeju. This is where our pension was and this was where many of the people from our group hung out when we opted out of hiking Mt. Hallasan.
Sunrise and low tide.
Midday and high tide.
Some people hiked up Mt. Hallasan, where the views were spectacular!
Cheonjeyeon Falls – A beautiful and lush park area that consisted of three different waterfalls (though one was just a pond), and more!
These next pictures show one of the places our group went to in Jeju, but I can’t find the name! This area was by far one of the prettiest places we saw though!
Jeongbang Falls – The only waterfall in Korea that falls directly to the ocean.
Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak – This crater is a world heritage site. It’s a small hike up but the views are supposed to be great! Unfortunately when we hiked up, there was heavy fog, so we didn’t see too much.
Samyang Black Sand Beach – Coming from the sugar white sands of my hometown of Panama City Beach, Florida, this was definitely a different beach! It had it’s own beauty though!
Not ready to come back to Seoul!
Have a great weekend! Hopefully I can resume back to my normal blog schedule by next week! 🙂
