Helo welcom 2 my websight
The Seoul post will take a while, I’m afraid, (we’re so frickin’ busy) and I might forget most of it, but here’s an update from a more recent trip~
Last Tuesday, we went on a staff trip with some of the people from our church. Of course we had to get up at 7 AM, so we didn’t get any sleep once again, but I think we kind of needed a trip like this after all the routine working we do day in day out. The daily grind was setting in pretty hard by then, so I was happy to get out of Wando for a day.
After a long (3+ hours) bus ride that involved ajummas doing karaoke on a moving bus (complete with huge widescreen tv, of course), we arrived at a beautiful mountain, where we spent 2 hours just walking around.
Winter has set in pretty hard by now, so all the leaves were already gone, leaving the forest with a kind of creepy, solemn atmosphere. It was still very pretty though, of course. Perhaps even more so.
[Welcome to Kangjunsan Mountain!]
[Where you can pluck little red leaves that represent your memory of this day]
[Where you should not disturb the creepy couch people, lest you get your ass munched off]
[Where, if you wait long enough, a Turtle will come to turn you into a statue to ward off spirits]
[Where you don’t want to be if you’ve seen The Blair Witch Project, but otherwise you can enjoy the pretty wishing-piles]
[Where the wishes you make might actually come true (though I gotta admit it was a little skewed)]
[Where…uh..I got nothing. It’s pretty though right?]
[Where your 2 hours walk is rewarded by this stunning view]
After that, we went to a place called the ‘train village’.
Basically it was a small run down park with like two restored old trains, which is why I have only one picture (I really didn’t know what to take a picture of or why we were even there. We had some good ramyun though!):
[This train was in a movie, you know?]
Then we started our 4 hour trip back to Wando in the crazy noreabang bus.
Honestly, none of it was all that good, but the staff seemed to have enjoyed themselves a lot, so I’m glad. I was surprised at how easily excitable these old people were. As I was writing this, they’re actually DANCING TO TECHNO ON THE BUS and there’s like disco lights and everything WHAT THE FUCK? Every time we got close to a toll booth, the driver had to turn the music down and turn the disco lights off to pass through, shit was crazy. I still don’t really get the old women + techno combination, but they REALLY got into it.
We arrived back in Wando around 20:00, and after that we prepared for English Camp, which was today.
The English Camp was a lot more elaborate this time, compared to the last one we had, but I think we spent too much time on the decorations and the concept while we should have been coming up with more games for the kids to play. It was alright though, and it’s over now, so I’m satisfied :3
Soon, I will make a post about our epic adventures in Daejon 2 weekends ago, and then maybe I can finally get to the big Seoul story.
