Out and About in Seoul, or Why Our Feet Are Killing Us (But It Was Worth It)

J. and the kids visited the "Hanok Village" where folks still live in traditional houses, right in the heart of Seoul.  It is charming.

After being without bikes for so long, we were all itching to get on some wheels and go exploring.  The weather complied and the sun came out for a few hours that afternoon just in time for our little excursion. 

cherry blossom season!

After hours and hours spent navigating our way around the city underground, the kids started to figure out the subway system and took turns mapping us from here to there.

Our Saipan friend Sunny and her daughter were also visiting Korea during Spring Break and they showed us around the Arts Center area one afternoon.  They took us hiking, to see an exhibit, and to a lovely lunch.  It was the best meal we've had so far!

Just outside of Seoul there are lots of hiking trails that are popular, especially on weekends.  Here we are at Bukhansan National Park:
