A two night-three day stay on the beach of Jeju Island plus touring plus wonderful smells plus sweaty shirts plus a hotel with no wifi, no lotion, no iron, and no towels, but with a wonderful hosing area outside the side door and a wonderful breakfast spread and friendly service plus taking hikes and indirect bonding with near-future classmates?
Yes. Yes to it all.
Though the days were long and the nights were short, my stay at Jeju Island with my just-saw-you-a-day-ago-but-I-didn’t-actually-get-to-talk-to-you-much classmates was wonderful. Sometimes, there are things that you didn’t know you needed, but when exposed, you finally realize that yes, this is the answer to life. Jeju Island was that.
Below are snapshots of my time there. Truthfully, I’m wiped out. Therefore, I’ll save the explaining and captions for my journal. All in all, it was a lot of sight seeing and water (from the sky, from the sea). I had the best time and will forever yearn for another taste of the famous Jeju oranges.
