So Stupendous

So I maybe over did it on Friday night but I made plans for Saturday: hiking! I hate being a flake and would say that 99% of the time I'm not one so I couldn't back out of this hike even though I didn't feel all that well when I woke up.

But boy am I glad I went. I can't remember the names of the places we visited but they were awesome. Seoul is filled with mountains and those have little "hidden treasures" of temples and shrines all over them that are just beautiful. We saw plenty of those this weekend. Didn't take any pictures of them but I did take some pics of the view:

Some crazy berries

Water fall and water wheel
Overall a very good day. I am so glad I went...
Sunday we made some of my favorite foods and went to the park to relax. There are a couple really nice parks near where we live that I like to go to. It is starting to not be as hot so I am happy to be outside. After that we went to dinner and a movie. We saw 해운대 which is a movie about a tsunami that hits part of Korea and leaves it in ruins. The film has a popularity higher than Titanic had. I didn't find it all that awesome but then again it was all in Korean so I only understood like 30% of the dialogue.

Well miss Mags, I would love to lie and say I wouldn't miss it for the world but I can't honestly say right now whether I will or not. The new calendar for next year isn't out yet so I don't know whether I will have time off then or not. Maybe I will be able to swing a day of but it's doubtful since I took over a week of to be in the hospital. Anyway, I will do what's in my power to be there in body, but I wouldn't miss it for the world in mind or spirit. OMG can't you do it sooner say a nice winter wedding around Jan 1st? I'd definitly be there.
