Early Saturday morning, my aunts, my paternal grandmother, and my mom packed up and left on a long journey to visit my grandfather's grave to pay respects in time for the Chinese new year.
It ended up being a very food-oriented trip, where each destination was an improvement upon the previous destination.
|Apparently a restaurant that my aunts and my dad used to frequent|
|It was slightly disappointing to be honest.|
|Then we went to the Jin-Joo Market|
And he has a oxen farm!
Then, we stopped by TongYoung, where General Lee won battles with his tutrle-ship ... and they have this area called 'Dong-Pi-Rang' that has lovely murals:
|This one says 'Where? Dong-Pi-Rang!'|
|Not sure what this is supposed to be....|
|This guy came with 5 other guys... Dong Pi Rang seemed more like a place for couples... so i thought it was a bit weird that 6 guys came together...but they seemed to be enjoying themselves, so *shrug*|
|This is a special 'Kim Bob' called 'Chungmuro' Kimbob, where the sole ingredients are Rice with seaweed, eaten with kimchi. It was delicious!|
Then, we spent the night at a cabin in the woods, but I don't have pictures from there because we passed out soon after we got in.
The next day, we woke up early and drove around sight-seeing around the Guh-Jae Island:
Then, we drove to Busan and walked around the market there:
Since this is an important year for both of us, we will be spending more time on our work and less time on sight-seeing, but we hope to keep our saturday tradition alive of doing something nice together -- be it seeing the ballet, going to a new place in Seoul or outside Seoul, or traveling together.
Either way, I am looking forward to having him back. Skype is great, but it sure can't beat the real thing.
