“The beauty of nomadic life is that you’re detached from the flaws of the surrounding society while you soak up the best it has to offer. You’re an observer. You have no stake. You’re just passing through.”- Richard Boudreaux


Destination: a full day of Jeju (Jeju-do) – part 3 of 3

Meet Oedolgae, Jusangjeolli, Cheonjaeyeon, Jungmun Saekdal Beach, Sanbanggulsa, and Loveland – all in the same day.

The nice part of going on a guided tour is the ability to meet with like-minded travelers, visit a bunch of places, and (perhaps nicest of all), not have to think about how you’re going from A to B. As a (usually) independent traveler, that last point is nice to take a break from every now and then. The schedule on many a guided tour is tighter than I’d personally like, but that’s the tradeoff at play. In any case, it was a beautiful day at some of Jeju’s most beautiful places.

Strange Things of Korea : Sculpture Parks, Part 2 (제주러브랜드)

As one comment correctly guessed in my previous post about sculpture parks, this will indeed be about penises. The Loveland park, located on Jeju Island is a sex themed museum. The sculptures are the work of two graduate of the prestigious Hongdae art school.
When I visited quite a while ago, I took a taxi from Jeju's main city but the driver didn't seem to know about the park. A very awkward conversation ensued during which I had to explain that I indeed wanted to see a park full of statues of oversized genitalia. Korea also has a sculpture park solely filled with statues of gigantic penises, but this will be the subject of another post! Anyways, here are some pictures:

The best time to visit Love Land is at night when the statues look uncannily real. It's also much easier to hide your face in the darkness. ~ Photo P. DeMarco

Take a peep inside Korea’s taboo busting erotic theme park where love oriented art and eroticism meet unabashed.

Destination: Jeju, part 3

Picking up from part 1 and part 2 of the Jeju Christmas trip with Adventure Korea - now time for part 3 (Dec 27 2009).

Although it's the final day of the trip, the third day around Jeju offered as much to see as the rest of the weekend. Breakfast in our hotel, then we loaded the bus and headed to Hallim Park (한림공원):
