SeaBong Restaurant

After a long day travailing the Olle Trail of Seogwipo, Jeju – we decided it was time for a great meal! We earned those calories! 🀣 We were checking out restaurants in the vicinity and came across a well-recommended SeaBong Restaurant.

The Ocean’s Story Facade

The Ocean has its silent caves, Deep, quiet, and alone; Though there be fury on the waves, Beneath them there is none. The awful spirits of the deep Hold their communion there; And there are those for whom we weep, The young, the bright, the fair. Calmly the wearied seamen rest Beneath their own blue sea. The ocean solitudes are blest, For there is purity. … Continue reading The Ocean’s Story Facade

First Day in Jeju on the Olle Trail

After the adventure that was our trip to Jeju, we were really excited about this trip to the lovely island home of the famous Jeju oranges!

But our first morning, we woke up pretty early. 🌼🌷🌴 A window had been left open, so we were frozen to the … Continue reading First Day in Jeju on the Olle Trail

When the university warned us all returning faculty to China would have to undergo 14 days of isolation with out the chance to go get food (‘vegetables will be provided’) — our ‘vacation’ in Korea was promptly extended πŸ˜‚

We already posted our less than lovely abode in Myeongdong at the Merlin Hotel, so pretty clear we wanted to find a new, slightly MORE lovely abode if we were gonna be staying another month. Not living with permanent back pain from torture was our ambitious, but hopeful quest. 😎

While looking for our next erm. . . economy? πŸ€” dirt cheap? . . . destination, we stopped by the G2 Hotel Myeongdong for a night out. We were filtering results by ‘bed review’ and these popped up:

‘The bed was great’ . . . We were hooked! 😍πŸ₯°πŸ₯³

What We Were Looking For: Good Value for the Money, Short Stay, Nice Bed! We really wanted something in the area with a decent bed, good breakfast, and potential laundry options.

Conclusion: 😊 (4 out of 5 stars)

Oedolgae Rock (Jeju)

Talk a walk down the Olle Trail of Jeju Island and you come across Oedolgae Rock (μ™ΈλŒκ°œ). We set off on our first day towards the Seogwipo Port and Oedolgae was one of the sites we stumbled on. Erosion has slowly left this rock standing as an island alone – probably why its name means ‘Solitary Rock’ or ‘Lonely Rock’. 😭 Kinda sad to think … Continue reading Oedolgae Rock (Jeju)
