Jeju island

Jeju

I tried to wirte this post like 100 times, but all of those failed attempts made it look like I was complaining because it wasn't really the Paradise I was expecting lol, but if you want to read more about it, you can check my sis' blog post here, now that I look at it, she didn't write much either, but she has better pictures lol.

All in all, I did enjoyed our 3 day trip to the Island and I'm looking forward to go back with a better weather since we went in the middle of october and it was pretty chilli hehe.

4 Days with the International Peace March from Jeju to Jiri Mountain

By Dae Han Song

The International Peace March started July 3rd at Gangjeong Village and continues until July 27th – the 60 year anniversary of the Armistice Agreement – when rallies will be held in front of the US Embassy and Military bases in Seoul calling for a peace treaty to finally conclude the Korean War. Along the way, marchers will visit sites of the Korean War and ongoing struggles to reflect upon the connections between war, military spending, and division to militarization, social welfare, and political repression.

Golden Buddha at the Sanbangsan Mountain

Jeju island, located in the South of South Korea itself was formed due to a volcanic activity. The Sanbangsan Mountain, located in the South West corner of the island, was formed some 800,000 years ago with the cooling down of viscous lava from the volcanic eruption. I loved the unique, almost flaky texture and interesting patterns in the mountain.

Day trips don’t get any better – but there’s a catch. 

Welcome to Cow Island – yes, Udo does sort of resemble a sitting cow. Thus, the name fits, if such a thing matters much. While Jeju features enough places to keep most travelers busy for a week, the tiny 5.9 sq. km. Island requires a half-day. Good thing, too – despite the minbak (family-run hotel) and pensions around, it’s easy to tell apart the locals from the tourists.
