Back at it again with those weekly blog posts! I had a wonderful past few weeks with my partner, Louis, visiting the country. So of course, whenever we have several days off together, we travel! Off to Jeju Island, South Korea we went!
The start of our day was actually quite slow–doing laundry, packing, and lazily getting into the city. We searched for a famous 100+ year old restaurant for lunch to find out it was closed… of course. 😦 But, we weren’t too discouraged, we could always come back and plus… we were going to JEJU ISLAND! 🙂
Wanting to discover the rumors of Jeju’s beauty, we got onto our 1-hour flight in anticipation (oh, and with matchy-matchy travel pillows 😉 ). Since our flight was in the late afternoon, we really didn’t have a lot planned out for the evening. Pretty much we just had to pick up our rental car (HIGHLY RECOMMEND), check into our hotel, and find some famous Jeju black pork BBQ to feast on!
After we picked up our rental car and checked into our hotel, we were hungry and ready to eat some of this famous Jeju dish! The restaurant we decided to try is actually quite popular among the internet and some mainland Korean friends. We ordered three, yep, THREE servings of meat, two servings of kimchi-jjigae (kimchi stew), a bottle of beer, two servings of rice, and lots and lots of garlic! We. Were. So. Full. There was literally a family of four seated next to us whom were served after us and may I note, also left before us. It’s what we came here for. No shame. 😛 If you’d like to check out what this restaurant is, click here.
Our eating adventure was quite a nice start to our vacation, so no complaints! Day 2 would be a pretty packed day for us as we would be traveling to the east side of the island. Just as a preview, we definitely made our way to Udo Island, so stay tuned for the next post! 😉
