This is all about my EPIK teaching adventures in Korea!
This weekend we ventured to The Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival. We signed up for a tour bus with some other native English teachers from the area. The bus ride was estimated at about an hour and a half, however this was before knowing just how bad the traffic was going to be. It took a grueling two and a half hours. Totally worth it
The cherry blossoms were absolutely gorgeous! We walked along side the Yeojwacheon Romance Bridge, which has cherry blossoms cascading over both sides. Below is a quiet stream lined with bright yellow flowers. The entirety is overflowing with tourists taking “couples” pictures and selfies. Which is actually extremely entertaining to watch.
Next we hiked 45 minutes down the street to the Gyeonghwa Station, which is famous for it’s picturesque scene of a train coming into the station with the cherry blossoms raining down. This is the first picture below ( I wish I could take credit). The rest are from our time there.
Over lunch time we tried some street meat, which was basically chicken on a stick. Next, thinly sliced potato on a stick and topped it off with the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had in my life. Near the end of the day it got quite cool, and after some rain we decided to get some hot drinks. The little coffee shop was so cosy and by far the best drinks around. I was told the cappuccino was also amazing.
The last picture of “hot ice”…. I’m not quite sure how that works…
