This past weekend, I went on a weekend trip with my childhood friend (who I have known for over 20 years). It was filled with people, food, and sights:
|I took this picture while waiting for my friend at the bus station|
|My friend made a lovely Caprese salad for the ride there. It was delicious|
|After checking in, we checked out the gallery that was close to where we were staying.|
|It was SO packed the first day! It was almost impossible to walk around!|
|Cute little shop that had very expensive pottery items... (one tiny espresso mug for $100!)|
|One of the many cafes we saw...|
|Cute little cartoony car|
|For lunch, we went to a place that my childhood apparently went with her family quite often when she was younger|
|It was... delicious!|
|Gorgeous mountain -- really -- this picture does not do justice...|
|Cool sign for a restaurant|
|Their slogan was 'lets make just enough money and live very well'|
|So many colorful clothes!|
|One of the landmark churches|
After walking around, we stumbled upon a new gallery that was opening. It was designed by this one Korean artist, and it was just so lovely! I definitely want to come back here one day.
Then, we went to the original Pastry shop that is famous for creating 'Choco-pie' which is a popular snack in Korea:
After resting at home a bit, we went exploring again and saw couple more of the 'experience houses'
More shops and cafes
Then for dinner, we went to a pork noodle place. My mouth is watering just thinking about the place again:

It was... delicious. I love pork so much. I will post about the rest of the trip some other day... but Jeonju is definitely a very cool place to visit, if one plans on an extended stay in Korea.
