May in Korea
It has been a while since my last post so I thought I would type up a quick summary of what we were up to throughout the month of May in Korea, or at least the parts I can remember. Time has been flying by here and it all feels like a big blur. It is crazy for us to think that we have already lived here four months, although I know some certain family members back home say it feels like we have been gone years…you know who you are. 🙂
At the beginning of May I had a few days off work so we ventured to Seoul to check out the lanterns that were put up in honor of Buddha’s birth. Every year the temples are decorated with the colorful lanterns prior to a lantern festival and nighttime lantern parade.

I just LOVE all of the bright colors. It reminds me of Fiesta back in San Antonio.
This was before I knew showing your shoulders wasn’t an ok thing to do in Korea. Luckily we were in Seoul so it isn’t as frowned upon like in the smaller cities but I still was in a temple so it probably wasn’t a good idea for me to wear a tank. Whoops!
Adam hates pictures and enjoys making the most goofy faces possible.
FOOD BREAK: For those of you that think all we eat is rice and kimchi, here is proof that Korea does have some really great food other than traditional Korean dishes (which we also love).
As you can see, we have plenty of food options to choose from when it comes to dining in Korea. However, we still have a long list of places that we have yet to visit. 🙂
Our last day out and about in Seoul was spent exploring in the rain. We walked 2 miles (not really knowing where we were going) to find some Harley shirts for Uncle Tony. Adam snapped this photo to document our trip.
Our next stop was the War Memorial of Korea. We didn’t realize how large it was going to be and ran out of time before having to leave for our dinner reservation. It was extremely interesting though and we look forward to visiting again on a sunnier day so we can get some better photos.
After a few days in Seoul we made a stop in Suwon for a KT Wiz baseball game. Korean’s LOVE their baseball. The reaction American’s have to a Grand Slam is the way Korean’s act if there is a foul ball. It was awesome. We will definitely be venturing back for a few more games. Go KT Wiz!
All in all, May was an amazing month for us (minus Petey getting hit by a car while riding his scooter). I will update you all with a June post once the month is over. In the meantime, enjoy these adorable photos I took at our school’s May field trip. 🙂
Until next time, -E.
