This day was the most important day cuz finally I could try surfing and move to the hotel.

 

We ran into the beach where surf class is held.

The class went on about 3hrs – from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Teachers were nice. They also run the guest house in Jeju. If I visit Jeju next time, I will stay at their place.

And also they said the water temperature is warm until December, suffers could enjoy the surfing almost 4 seasons in Jeju – But I think that is too much 🙂
Maybe it would be possible until November or October.

The weather was kinda windy not like the day before so the beach was wavy. It was perfect weather for surfers. not that sunny and wavy sea with warm temperature.

I had sung for surfing for a long time. It was the time to make my dream come true.

But I am the beginner it was kinda tough to even stand up from the board.

After exposure to the sun for a long time, I got burned 🙂

Finally, it’s like a summer now. Not tanned but burned 🙂

After surfing time, we checked in and took a rest.

The room was right next to the swimming pool. The balcony was stuck in right next to the swimming pool, we watched people and the sea with soju & Korean sushi.

After drinking soju and beers, my friend fell a sleep and I needed some more.

So I enjoyed ramen with sprite in the balcony.

Next day we drove to the forest. Jeju island is made by volcano. So Jeju island has big volcanic mountain and is surrounded by sea. We enjoyed the seaside so we drove into the mountain.

We bought massive giant gimbaps. We bought 3 and we had to have it as breakfast, lunch and dinner… We were so arrogant to decide to buy 3 layers of giant gimbap.

It is impossible to express how big it is.

But on the way to the forest… there was car accident on the way to the mountain…. I crashed our rent car.. the front bumper was smashed so we had to return our car right away…

I was shaking at that moment. I couldn’t help forgetting about the moment -car crashing moment.

But after few hours I was getting fine like normal days.

It was our last afternoon so We rent a bicycle and had bicycle tour around the hotel.

We headed to Youngduam and tried abalone with beer.

We also searched the nice café near our hotel.

It was an enjoyable experience to stroll down the street by bicycle. We could see the view which we couldn’t see if we drove by car.

In the night, we went to the bar in the old town. I couldn’t still forget about this place. The selection of their music was amazingly nice. It was much better than any other live jazz bar.

This night was little chilly so it was nice to walk around the city but the city was too quiet after 10 p.m.  Last night still remains in my mind. Good music, nice people, nice wind.

 

This is all about my travel diary.

Hope to leave somewhere soon. Until that time, take care~ XOXO.

JEJU ISLAND Part 1 -2017 AUGUST

My new wanderlust is Jeju island.

I live in South Korea and probably as you know, territory of South Korea is like tiny little peanut.

This tiny little country has one of well-known islands with emerald-colored ocean named Jeju island.

Since I was young, I have visited this island for vacations and so on.

This time it was like summer comma(,) break for me. The reason why I call this trip as a comma(,) break is that this vacancy was too short to call  “long vacation” compared to other long vacations.

It was kind of comma(,) in the long line of busy life.

 

So~ then,

Let’s start about happy break.

Processed with MOLDIV

First, say “Hi” with my travel mate.

She is one of my GOOD friends. This is the first time to travel just two of us.

She must have tired because when I’m in travel I’m like crazy speed car.

I barely sleep and just keep thinking about fun stuff continuously.

For 5 days, she did really good. She stood my enthusiasm for travel very well.

From Seoul, we took a late afternoon flight.

From Seoul to Jeju, it costs around $100 for round trip – in summer season.
If it is not a high season it could be less than $50.
But it is worth to pay for high season flight ticket fee to see the summer of Jeju Island
cuz it has emerald-colored ocean and the water is warm to swim all day.

After renting our car, we drove to Guest house.

While we drove to the Guest house. We could enjoy the view of sunset by the sea.

For 4 nights of the trip, we stayed 2 nights in the guest house and 2 nights in the hotel.

I chose not-a-good-mannered guest house this time. But it is always nice experience to meet other travelers at this place.

Next morning, we headed straight to Hyeopjae Beach.

Can you see how transparent the water is??
It was soooooo grateful that I could see this view.

Right next to the beach, there are a lot of cafes on the seaside.
Before swimming time, we had a cup of coffee and took a photo.
This is the view from the terrace of cafe.
Isn’t it sooooo beautiful? uh?

And then, now it’s swimming time~~

 

We borrowed this doughnut-shaped tube and ran into the water.

I really fall into this film camera filter lately

I bought Gudak app which is like real film camera. I could take just 24 shots like real film.
And I have to wait about 3 days to get this pictures like real film camera.

Tomorrow my first film would be uploaded on my album. It is so exciting.

 

After this drastic swimming session, we showered and headed to the central city.

We met our colleague who lives in Jeju.

We walked around the old town of Jeju.

The old town was vintage kinda street filled with young people.

After this tough day, I went to bed right after coming back from the city cuz I had to be ready for the surf day!!!

Can’t wait to post my part 2 blog post.

See you soon.
