last week i took a road trip to the southern part of the south korea. i was surprised how different it was compared to seoul. the sky was everyday blue, the traffic was okay and there was much less people. and mountains. there were mountains everywhere! in one village where i stayed overnight, at 4 am a song was played to wake up everybody. the day starts there a bit earlier. people had much darker skin and often didn't cover themselves from the sun as much as in seoul. they were also very friendly and kind. it was a really nice experience.

the first 10 days in south korea has passed so fast. it feels good to be back here but i needed some days to readjust. there are so many people here. only in seoul there are 3 times more people than in whole finland. im eating so much! the food is just too good here. last four days i spent traveling around in the small cities and villages. it was really good experience. more about it in the next post.
(im trying to catch up with reading everyone's blogs but my google reader still says that i have over 380 unread blog posts...)

this will be a tremendous summer.

yesterday i spent half of my day reading blogs of people who have left their jobs and homes and went to travel around the world. their stories were amazing but at the same time i felt a bit sad. i felt like they are living their lives to the fullest and i'm just at home sitting and studying. my life is so static right now.
the above pictures are from my last year travels. last year i have visited 10 countries. this year none so far. but that's about to change in two weeks.
