Korea Adventure #2: Jeonju Trip

Visiting Jeonju was high up on my "things to do in Korea" list. It is famous for its delicious food and the beautiful Jeonju Hanok Village. When I asked Annalise if she wanted to go with me, she was more than excited!

After an amazing first day in Jejudo, Annalise and I were super excited for our second day! Since it was our last day with our tour guide, we had a super tight schedule. Before we left for Jejudo, the weather forecast said that it would not rain for the entire duration of our stay, but, to our dismay, it rained on our second day, which explains why I wore flip flops in my pictures...

Korea Adventure #1: Jeju Trip: Part I

The highlight of my trip to Korea so far would be my trip to Jeju Island! I went there for a three-day trip with my best friend from high school, Annalise, who flew in to Korea last week to visit me and her friends from pharmacy school.

To give some background, Jeju, more commonly called Jejudo in Korean, is an island located off the southwest coast of Korea. Jeju is to Korea as Hawaii is to the US. It is known for the wonderful weather and fresh seafood!

To get the most out of the trip, we hired a tour guide who drove us around everywhere until 7pm. What I found interesting was the lack of fluent English-speaking tour guides in Jeju, so I had to translate most of the time for Annalise, which I did not mind. Because Jeju was once a hotspot for Chinese tourists, there are more tour guides who are bilingually fluent in Korean and Chinese than those who are fluent in English.
