being vegan makes me more aware of what i eat. i like food. i like trying out new things. i like dining out but i also like to cook. the above pictures are from Jeombongsan Mountain Vegetable Village in Sokcho, South Korea. i think it is the best meal i have had in korea. it consisted of various mushrooms and plants that grow in mountains. the most interesting mushroom was black mushroom that grows on stones. i have also liked the pickled garlic leaves. on the pictures you can see only half of the food that was served. for desert there was omija tea. this all costed only 8 euros per person.

summer in the city. it's getting really hot and humid. we escaped for a few days to seoraksan national park and east sea. the water was a bit too cold to swim though. i think it was one of the best times i had in korea.

i have a huge red pimple on my forehead and it is my biggest problem right now (well i have some other serious problems but i refuse to deal with them). i tired to apply toothpaste on it for a night but it didn't help much. my skin got so much worse during last 10 months due to heavy pollution and spicy food.

in one month im homeless and jobless but im going to be a traveler so i guess it is okay. i made a list of places i want to visit before going back home:
- Seoraksan national park and east sea (june 6-8)
- DMZ (june 14)
- Namsan tower (i can't believe i haven't been there yet)
- SOMA and LEEUM museums
- Insadong (i went there once on sunday but there was too much people. i have to go there on a week day when it is less crowded)
- Carribean bay (just because it was so much fun two years ago)

oh, and finnair was selling on a weekend return tickets to seoul for only 399 euro! i was tempt to buy it as a christmas gift but i should really go to poland then. :)
