After months of anticipation we left for our trip to South-Korea and Jeju-Island In the beginning of June. After traveling for over 24 hours with several connecting flights, we arrived in Jeju-si. Here we had the opportunity to get to know the local history seen through the eyes of one of the most funny local guides. Not only did he tell us about local folklore and spiritual stories about how certain parts of the island came to be, he also gave us some tips about local restaurants and hot spots. Our day was packed with visits to Jeju Stone Park, a small historical village by the foot of Mt. Hallasan and we even hiked up Seongsan Ilchulbong or Sunrise Peak, which is a tuff cone that was formed by hydrovolcanic eruptions several thousands of years ago.
After we spend some good days on Jeju Island we travelled further to Seoul city. Here we got to experience the big contrast between the country side and the metropolitan city. Seoul showed us diversity and each part of this enormous city comes with its own special quirks and atmosphere. One can walk for hours and hours in this city and you dont stop getting surprised everywhere you look. We spend our days getting lost in tiny filled up alleys, wandered amongst grand buildings and palaces, and had just a little too much coffee in many of the small modern coffee shops which could be found everywhere if you looked well enough! This is a city to get lost in and one that requires time to be discovered.
