A few weeks ago, Domingos and I went to check out the small but impressive Arario Museum in Space, a contemporary art museum near Anguk Station.
I’ve been meaning to write a sort of “Miscellaneous Korea” post with various photos from the past month, so here I am, trying to have a productive Monday morning. A few weeks ago, Domingos and I walked all over Kyungridan on a Saturday night. This is one of the signs we saw that I enjoyed:
March was a great reading month! I thoroughly enjoyed almost every book I read.
The Dark Days Pact, by Alison Goodman: Even better than the first book in the trilogy! Goodman has infused these novels with so much historical accuracy (England in the early 19th century), and yet it never feels heavy-handed. Lady Helen is coming into her Reclaimer powers, learning to dress and act as a man, fighting her feelings for Lord Carlston, and still dealing with the Duke of Selburn’s attentions. Great detail, great characters, great action, and an ending that packed an incredible emotional punch. I need the next book! VGR Continue reading “March 2017 Reading Wrap-up”
Yongma Land, a small abandoned and dilapidated amusement park near Mangu Station, has been on my must-visit list for a while. I finally made it there this week, and it was worth the wait! Continue reading “Yongma Land”
After Nami Island, the shuttle bus took us to Petite France, a teensy amusement park that is supposed to be a sort of French village slash homage to Le Petite Prince. It was cute, but there’s not a whole lot to it.
On a sunny but cold Monday, Mom and I took a shuttle bus to Nami Island and Petite France. It was great to go back to Nami Island with my mom, and we were lucky to find the place fairly uncrowded. We wanted to take the zip line instead of the ferry, but it was just too cold and we didn’t think it would be worth it.
I just realized that it’s been almost a month since we got back from Bhutan, and the only thing I’ve put on my blog was my February reading list. Meanwhile, photos and a few experiences have been building up.
First up: an awesome mint-chocolate cafe in Hongdae, Mint Heim, that I’ve been to twice in the last month!

Spin, by Robert Charles Wilson: This was an enjoyable sci-fi novel with fascinating science, a great premise, and excellent world-building. Intelligent beings have put the earth inside a type of bubble, making time pass on earth much more slowly than outside the planet. The main characters are twins Diane and Jason, and their childhood best friend Tyler, who is a little boring as the narrator. But the story rises above that and was a real page-turner.

This morning, we set off for Taktshang Monastery, better known to Westerners as “Tiger’s Nest.” It was a fabulous hike, not as hard as the one we did at Dochula Pass the other day, but still a challenge.
