This weekend was packed. I traveled to Jeju Island at the southern tip of the Korean peninsula. To my surprise it was a lot more tropical feeling than I expected. The beaches were white, the water was cristal clear and bright blue, and the island was covered with forests and dramatic landscaping. Being a volcanic island, Jeju is home to the tallest peak in Korea. Though we did not have a chance to make it to the top (it takes about one whole day to do the trip) we took advantage of other sites on the island such as Seongsan Ilchulbong, one of the large craters created from a volcanic eruption. My friends also took part in the Jeju Island half-marathon and 10 km. They had spent the last few months training for the run and they all did a fantastic job! Here are a few selects from the trip. Thanks for looking.
