Soak up the green – an escape from the city to nature

1 Seoul

Although, the city has some green to offer. MJ and I needed to escape the hustle and bustle of Seoul. We both have been busy and an escape to the country side was well deserved. We got off at Gapyeong (가평), subway line 경춘선 (the North-East of Seoul) for some quit time.

We set up a camp, after we cleaned the area because not everybody is respectful enough towards nature to leave it as they found it. ಠ_ಠ. Between the plastic junk MJ found 4 slippers, all left ones for some mysterious reason. After making ourselves comfortable we had nothing to do except swim, read, nap and forget about the city.

Back in Seoul we went to a Japanese all you can eat buffet, to make the transition from green paradise to neon paradise a little better.
