Why yes that is a gift pack of tuna, Spam, and olive oil. Seeing as how we don't eat any of these things things we gave our gift set to the husband and wife that own the Pizza School. Ahh Pizza School is another blog all in itself, I could go on and on for my love of their pizzas, the sweet people who own them, and the talks we have with the wife who is studying English.
Now for something a little more interesting we spent last Lunar New Year, which happened to also fall on Valentine's Day, on Jeju taking in the sights with our friend Jose. Here are a few photos of the things we saw. Exactly how many is a few? There might be more than a few......
|Ryan and the ocean|
|Me and the ocean|
|Up in the room|
|I think he is finally smiling now that he knows he has a place to smoke cigars.|
|Where we ate dinner.|
|What we ate for dinner.|
|It was amazing, and feed all three of us with some left over.|
We got a taxi a he took us to five different sights on the island.
The first site was Oedolgae Rock:
|To this day I don't understand what is so great about this rock.|
|Ryan out by the waterfall|
|I know I know people everywhere are thinking "eww" (well only those young ones) but I have always loved this one.|
The third stop was the Jeju Folk Village Museum and I have to say I found it all very interesting because the history, the houses, everything is so different from what we learn in school, or see in all our museums growing up. Sadly this place was huge and even thought I have a ton of photos we didn't have time to even see half of it.
|Outside the house|
|Inside the house, as you can tell we are a little two tall for traditional style Korean homes|
|Ryan and I spent a good amount of time petting that cow, what can I say we miss the cow at the Riverbanks Zoo.|
|Kimchi pots and a garden|
|A hut for someone in the upper society.|
|shoes, don't they just look cozy?|
|the hunter's house|
|A shrine to the worship the Chilseong god, the god that manages the wealth and grain of a family.|
|The death table, where families would place food on special occasions for those lost.|
|A kimchi pot maze|
|the home for the unmarried women|
|hear made out of shells|
The forth stop was Seongsanilchubong, a volcano.
|Getting ready to start up to the top.|
|on the way up|
|about half way up|
|a sad looking rock|
|at the top|
|We have been told that we need to go back in the summer, when the field is full of green grass and plants.|
I had a few good group shots of the three of us but they have gone MIA so I will add them if I find them.
The last and final stop of the day was to the Manjanggul Lava Tube. We couldn't take photos inside the tube so there are not many; however it was very neat down inside.
|The end of the tube we could take a photo of.|
|The main attraction inside, shh don't tell anyone.|
Yet again I have lost some photos, because we had a few good group ones yet again.
Finally we ended the day with a few photos on the balcony before calling it a day as Ryan and I got ready for an amazing dinner for Valentine's Day.
And then sadly on day 3 it was time to leave. 3 days was not long enough and I cannot wait to get back!
|Saying one last good bye to the beach.|
Well, that's that. Lunar New Year this year was nice and quite, Lunar New Year last year was amazing, yet each one of them was special for their own different reasons. I hope you enjoyed these "few" photos, I know I had a great time thinking back to the trip and they brought many smiles to my face.
