Art Village in Namhae, South Korea

After our stay at the Hi Class Pension in Namhae, we had breakfast at the Hilton and then set out for some sightseeing. If we hadn’t been going to the Hilton, we might have never noticed the art village, but we are so glad that we stumbled across it.

Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak – Jeju Island, Korea

Saturday, September 8

Day 5 of Joni’s visit

Saturday was our first day on Jeju Island. We woke up at 4am to travel to the other side of the island to see the sunset. What we didn’t realize was that once we got there, we’d have to climb to the top of a dormant volcano to see the view. We sent Dave ahead and Joni and I took our time on the 8 bajillion steps to the top. None of us were prepared for a hike, Joni more so than the rest of us. She was wearing a long dress and sandals. Oh… and did I mention it was raining? Yep. All that work and we couldn’t even see the sunrise anyway.

Joni took a tumble. She was okay.
