As some of you may know, this past weekend was Chuseok, or Korean Thanksgiving. Chuseok is probably the biggest holiday in Korea, and most everyone I know left the country or went traveling through S. Korea. Johnny got a laser treatment on his birthmark, so for the first few days of our vacation we were holed up in my apartment watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (pretty much the best TV show in the history of forever) and eating our lives away. We couldn’t take wasting any more gorgeous days cooped up inside, so we decided to go to a park and get some fresh air. We’d both never been to the Seoul Olympic Park, and it was such a good idea. The park is simply stunning! Tons of rolling green hills, ponds, fountains, trees, and art from the Olympic Sculpture Park. It was the perfect way to spend our day after feeling trapped for awhile.
How to get to the Seoul Olympic Park:
Head to Line 8, and take it to the Mongchontoseong stop, Exit 1. This will take you straight to the Peace Gate.
