One thing James and I love to do as often as possible is travel this gorgeous country. Last month, Korea celebrated Hangul Day, which honors the nation’s language. Since the national holiday fell on a Friday, we each had the day off work – an opportunity to escape Seoul and exploring Jeollanam-do. Blessed with beautiful weather, we spent the long weekend appreciating Korea’s landscape and enjoying what was left of the warm air. The three cities we visited were Gwangju, Boseong and Yeosu.
While we could have easily spent much longer in the province, I think we saw a lot for the time frame we were allotted. If you’re interested in exploring the province, I recommend checking out The Hedger’s Abroad. They’re an American expat duo currently living in the lovely Yeosu and offer some expert tips for those interested in visiting the area.
The laid back atmosphere Jeollanam-do has to offer was a perfect escape out of the hustle and bustle of Seoul, and I truly hope anyone who has the opportunity to visit takes advantage of it! Thanks for stopping by!
