Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years

Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years: Version 2.0!

Monday, May 9, 2011


Today we went to an 'autocamping' site that one of the families from the kindergarten has set themselves up at for the next few days.

It's a nice place not too far from Sillim.  Too many people for my taste, as I prefer camping in less congested surroundings.
Camping is supposedly super trendy these days.  I will say that when Koreans go camping, they go full out: pretty much every site was sitting on about 300-500 manners worth of gear.  

Kinda misses the point of camping I think.  Getting out of your comfort zone is hard to do when you've got your entire camp site wired with electricity, a laptop running a movie through a projector, and music blaring through a stereo.  

Still, it was a nice day.  We ended shortly after dinner at a famous Vietnamese rice noodle restaurant; it's run by a Vietnamese woman with her Korean husband, and is quite delicious.  Managed to grab a bag of nice Vietnamese coffee in the process.

While there, we ran into a buddy of mine and his family who had driven all the way from Wonju just to do that restaurant.  It was nice to catch up with him, it had been a while.

Time for sleep.
