Seoraksan National Park
After a hectic journey of overnight bus rides, begging bus drivers for stand-by seats, staring forelornly, and chicken nugget breakfast, we finally arrived at Seoraksan National Park in the northeast part of the country on a Saturday morning. Boy was it all worth it because Mama Mia, look at that view.
I turtled behind my friends for most of the hikes, but kept a good pace. Wonderfully, I was rewarded for my efforts by some strangers with a Korean pumpkin fruit leather (that I have never seen before and loved) and tangerines. The kindness of strangers is a beautiful thing.
Currently busy with holiday festivities, but I have some drawings up my sleeves and will see you in 2018!
