i've been doing a lot more outdoor activities since i arrived in seoul.

today i went hiking up a mountain with my cousin and his friend. my cousin (in the grey), has been working in korea for the past four years but is moving back to nyc for good in a few days. he's helped me tremendously while i've been in seoul and i'll miss him a lot when he leaves.

as for today's hike, it was definitely intense. i was honestly expecting a flat gravel path that slowly ascended to the peak of the mountain, but it was the complete opposite of that. the hike was extremely strenuous, going steeply up the mountain that left me thinking at certain times that i wasn't going to make it. much of the path didn't even seem like a path at most points, it just felt like we were just climbing rock after rock, hoping we were going the correct way. right before the peak, it's all large vertical rocks and you have to use your body strength with this rope to keep you from falling to your death. the adrenaline rush from that was awesome and kept me going the whole time. it took us over four hours to go up and come back down and am feeling completely beat at the moment---i'm pretty sure i'm going to be sore tomorrow.

i still don't have a camera so i took these pics today with my old cell phone, please excuse the shitty quality.

  2. Is it rude to ask you to post more photos of your cousin's friend? :)
