Exploring the island!


We have now been in Korea for a few weeks and another blog post is way overdue! We have been really enjoying our time here in Korea. For the most part, we have been lucky enough to have really good weather which means we can spend a lot of time outside! One of our favorite things to do here so far is to hike some of the different paths – it’s such a welcome change from the flatness of Houston! One weekend, we hiked with our friends up to one of the smoke stacks that was used to warn the other Koreans if the Japanese invaded. The hike was great – it started out with steep steps and continued to go up a ways – we are certainly getting in better shape!

This is the sign at the base of the trail; the pebbles wearing pink & blue outfits are the mascots of Gejoe

They had some really pretty flowers up at the top!

We spent the rest of the day driving around the island and exploring – these are some of the pictures from our afternoon!

View of some of the islands off of the island that we live on – so beautiful!

Ryan made a friend while we were walking around!

We found our way to a nice beach as well!
