This past Chuseok holiday, we decided to leave early (Friday – actual Chuseok is on Monday) to take a little trip around Korea. We decided to just go without a plan. Last New Years, we had made a sudden plan to go to Jeju Island and it was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken!
Because the trip was so last minute, we didn’t make any plans. We just flew to Jeju, picked up our rental car, and we were on our way with a guidebook. It was fantastic! Traveling without a set plan made me feel completely relaxed. Just go where you want to go. See where the road takes you.
So we decided to go for the same idea this time around. We got in our car on Friday and headed on the road. We stopped first at Mario Outlet (located at Gasan Digital Complex station) for a little bit of shopping – but we were overenthusiastic….We ended up spending all day there. Now it was 8PM and we hadn’t even left Seoul!
So we said let’s just drive! Namisom is only an hour and 30 minutes from Seoul, so we went for a drive. We arrived around 11PM, so we looked around for some pensions. We settled into ‘Su’ Pension and started our adventure the next morning…
A foggy morning and the nice view from our pension window.
Sweet FRESH AIR ❤
“Honey, don’t fight me. Take a picture!”
Let’s start with lunch. We had 숮불닭갈비 … grilled spicy chicken with some 막국수 – a type of cold noodles. The Makgugsu was fantastic! So fresh! However, I was underwhelmed by the chicken.Looks good anyway.
Just a short walk from the restaurant was the entrance to Namisom! Welcome welcome!
Do you want to build a snowman?
I don’t have any photos, but we took the ZIPLINE on to the island. For two people, we paid 70,000 won for the zipline. It was fun, but too short! MOREEEE! I felt the wind in my hair! They have a section where you can buy your photos, but we didn’t take a look. I’m sure it’s not looking that cute lol
Welcome to the island!
I see signs of fall here…
….ostriches? Wow, did you know they have some crazy feet?Ostrich selfie. I appreciate that he also looked at the camera…
