Yeosu-Jeju Spring 2013 Excursion - summary
So this time I decided to take some time off from my routine.
Burnt out. Period.
Earlier in April...Feia, Lisa and me planned an impromptu trip; a 4 days 3 nights getaway to the southern part of South Korea - Yeosu and Jeju Island.
I have never been to Yeosu before, so I'm a bit excited to see the beach. Never been a fan of crowd so I am grateful that I don't go gaga over Yeosu Expo's hype back in 2012.
But the trip to Jeju Island this time was like saying farewell to my lover so it rained cry me a river sorta..hehe.
