How the Lotus Lantern Festival Yeon Deung Hoe 2018 ended [Seoul]

As already mentioned in my post about “Get ready for Buddha’s birthday”, the Lotus Lantern Festival has already taken place during the last weekend.

Before it started, also in Jogyesa temple, one of the most important buddhistish temple in Korea, everyone was busy making and hänging the colorful lanterns. So beautiful…

Boulder gym – The Climb Hongdae [Seoul]

In Germany, I really enjoyed rock climbing with friends. In this sport, you need to use all the muscles you have to go up high. That’s why, for me it’s one of the best sports.

Well, no matter… I’ve made a list with all available gyms in Seoul, would like to visit all at least once, then find out which one is the best for me, and maybe I can also find new cool climbing mates there 😊!

Today was my first visit to The Climb Hongdae.

One round on the Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon

For a short break from the city life, today we made a half-day-trip in Suwon, which was around 1h driving to the south from Seoul’s center. Our main purpose was to visit the Hwaseong Fortress, an UNESCO World Heritage, that was built at the end of the 18th Century. We started our 5.5km walk on the fortress at the Hwahongmun Gate and finished after 3h.

A perfect location to escape the city and to shoot!
