Don’t you hate people who use the word summer as a verb? Me too.
After spending a week in the city we were ready to head to Rugen Island in the northern part of Germany to explore the white cliffs and soak up some sun. The drive to Rugen Island took about 4 hours and it was the first time that we saw car wrecks on the autobahn. It was raining quite a bit for part of the trip and there were two separate accidents where the driver obviously overestimated his abilities and from the looks of it, flew off the road trying to take a turn at 200 km/hr. Thankfully they only hurt themselves since both scenes involved single cars.
When we told people that we were going to South Korea for one leg of our RTW trip, almost everyone who was familiar with SK told us that we had to visit Jeju Island. They waxed poetic about the natural beauty of “honeymoon island” so we decided to check it out.
Jeju is a small tropical island off the tip of South Korea and with airfares under $100 USD and a flight time of about 1 hour from Seoul, it’s great for a long weekend or a short side-trip. We spent 3 nights on Jeju Island and I’m proud to say that we ate most of the dishes that the island is known for. I’ll get into that later.
