So, we have been in Korea almost 3 months.
These past three months have flown by SO fast! It seems like we have been in Korea forever as we feel really comfortable here, but at the same time these past 3 months have flashed before our eyes. We are still discovering bits of the city we now call home, but also doing more of what I call “regular life things” like shopping at our local market, working out more, unwinding at night with a documentary or a new show we are watching called Friday Night Lights. I thought it would be great to do a 3 month recap of our favorite places in Yeosu thus far. Ideally, I would love to make part 2,3, and 4 after 6, 9, and 12 months of living in Yeosu. We’ll see though 😉 No promises yet.
I’ll first start by saying that we LOVE hiking. I don’t talk much about it on my blog, because Tom is doing a great job documenting every single hike we do here.
Favorite Hike- Horangsan Mountain
Favorite place to shop- (hands down) the open air markets!
Favorite After School Adventure- Beautiful Odongdo Island
Most relaxing thing to do in Yeosu– Sunset Stroll and Turtle Park
Favorite beach- (by a landslide) Jangdeung beach
Favorite Temple- Jinnamgwan Temple
Favorite Coffee Shop- IMI Coffee!
One of our favorite places to eat (because this is too hard to choose) nicknamed ” Pork Palace”-
Favorite place for entertainment- Yeulmaru ( after visiting the temple Tom and I continued date night here! Duo piano concert 5$ a piece 🙂 Cool concerts, and cool art on display.
My Favorite Candid Moments that I caught in a photo! (because these were too cute not to post)
I know I have said this before, but I don’t think we could have picked a more perfect city to meet our interests. I think we are pretty spoiled with the mountains for hiking, and the beautiful beaches now that the weather feels like we live in a tropical rain forest. For any of you that know me I would also like to officially announce that I am FINALLY not cold. I can’t get enough of this heat. I have never felt humidity like this before, and although my hair is a crazy curly mess… I am loving the sunshine!
Do you have a favorite place you like to go back to time and time again? Or do you experiment with new places? I have a feeling our “favorite” places in Yeosu are ones we will visit time and time again.
