Greetings From Jeju Island

    Greetings from Korea! Me and my friends are having a ‘sort of’ backpacking trip here. I am able to see and meet people from all walks of life. Not to forget all the street food, snacks, and authentic Korean food. Gosh I miss nasi lemak so much right now. You would feel the same if you see and eat kimchi / pickled vegetables everyday.On the second day we headed to Jeju Island. Jeju Island is a land of myths. The island is inhabited by 18,000 gods and goddesses and is full of myths about them. The gods have been deeply involved in all aspects of the lives of the Jeju people.

    It is a famous travel spot for Koreans and Japanese, since the attractions are geared towards tourists, most of the entrance fees can be quite hefty. Trust me, the spectacular view will make every penny spent worthwhile.



    Shoju has very light and pleasant fragrances but the alcohol content is half to Vodka. We are so glad that Shoju is cheaper than coffee/tea over here. Hehe. I’ll see you guys soon!
