So I guess now you know that's where I've been. Here in Korea it's a national holiday called Chuseok. It's kind of like their version of Thanksgiving or so I'm told. Being British I couldn't really tell you if that's right or not. What I can tell you is I got a five day weekend! AHHHH-MAZING!!
So Steve and I ventured out for a road trip to the East coast of Korea.
Traffic is notoriously bad here on holidays so he made me wake up at some unearthly hour but apart from that the whole trip was so much fun.
Here is us on the road with all the 'notoriously' bad traffic.
Terrible isn't it!! Cars back to back for miles, absolute gridlock!
Had to put that photo on because he told me that was his 'pirate pose'. I love it, he's a goof. But so am I in all honesty so it's all good. Not too sure he'll love it being on here though so I guess this is my revenge for the stupid, pointless early wake up! Hehe. We got to the hotel, a 3 hour drive away, before I'm usually even stirring on a non-work day.

On our trip we did a tonne of stuff. I love driving and seeing what we come across. We happened to come to a pretty temple called Naksan Temple. It's on the edge of the sea, it was so serene and peaceful.
We also visited the border with North Korea. It was kind of an eerie experience. So strange to think that I live in a country still technically at war with it's only neighbor. We never really hear that much of the on-going disputes between the two countries but visiting the border area really made me think about it more.

Just over ten years ago the government here opened a few though so we made the most of the ones we could.

So I hope you'll keep reading still and please let me know what you like and don't. All comments and constructive criticism welcome...I think...eeeek! :)
