As our trip comes to a close we have traveled all over the peninsula. Our day started with a very early bus departure at 6:30 a.m. Our bus was the most whimsical and comfortable ride we had ever experienced (the reclining seats were most admirable). We went Gangneung Unification Park, Chungdongjin and Haslla Art Museum. We took Olympic pictures in front of Gangneung Train Station. Then we each selected individual sites that we would like to patron.
Gangneung Unification Park
It took us three hours to travel to Gangneung and prior to our arrival we stopped at the rest stop to have breakfast. After breakfast we would have an additional hour of travel to reach the unification park.
Haslla Art World
We dined at Sea Cafe. They are most know for their steak burger. After lunch we several hours admiring the modern art gallery, pinnocchio marionette museum, and sculpture park. A highlight to the museum was traveling through the tunnel that reminds one of being in the whale that Pinocchio had bravely entered to save his grandfather. Additionally, there was moving automata throughout several parts of the museum where works were exhibited.
After a beautiful time at Haslla Art World we road the coastal cliffs until we reached Gangneung Train Station where took pictures in front of the Olympic structure.
Oh the Places We’ll Go
Lastly, we would end our trip with frequenting various sites for our individual inclinations art, shopping, acclimating ourselves to tradition or culture are various reasons just to name a few. Korea the beautiful where people have welcomed us with open arms, touched our hearts, and shown us the most innermost facets to your culture. We thank you! We won’t cry because it’s over, but we will smile because it happened. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go” as stated by Dr. Seuss. And we have definitely read to learn!
The pictures above are just a snippet of the places we have gone, but it can never depict the depths to which we have grown in our hearts. We love you Korea!
