KGSP - Seoul Searching

So when I first got to Daejeon, I used to leave the city pretty often. I'd head to Seoul or Busan, or sometimes even Daegu, maybe every other week, or at least once a month. But once I settled into my school and lab work, my trips have gotten more and more sparse.

The last time I left Daejeon was about a month and a half ago to go to a concert in Seoul. But that was literally a day trip so I didn't really spend much time there. But now that my work is winding down a bit, I finally had time to go, so I went for the weekend.

They opened up an old highway as a new park, which is kinda neat.

It was a pretty tiring trip, but fun. On Satuday I got to Seoul and walked around the new highway park they opened up. It was a pretty neat idea, and they had some water spray things to cool down the park, which was awesome to just walk around cause it was a pretty hot day.

Then I went to buy some stuff and met some friends for dinner and drinks. That was pretty fun. It was good to see some of my friends again. Unfortunately a lot of them are busy with their own schoolwork so not everyone could come out, but it was still nice.

Got to try this Armenian cherry wine though. Random right?

Then today I went shopping a bit again, and then went to meet some friends at a board game cafe and play some games. So overall it was a pretty good weekend. Just lots of relaxing and socializing, which is a great change of pace.

The school week was alright too. It was the spring festival week, so we had a bunch of events at the school. The highlight of the festival was probably the international food festival, which was on Friday.

They even had a Canadian booth. I was not involved.

I went last year as well and it was about the same this year. A bunch of international students cooked some of their traditional food and sold them. Some decent food, but nothing super special. Best thing I tried was probably the plov from Kazakhstan.

So yea this week was pretty eventful. I feel like a lot happened this week and I could write a lot more about it. But I just got back from Seoul and I'm tired, so it's stunting my writing creativity haha.
