Busy Weekend

Time is ripping past like a wild animal and this weekend did just the same. The last few Saturdays I've been playing soccer at a local park. It's been great being able to run around for a few hours.

My friend David took this shot. Check out some of his other stuff. It's pretty awesome.

Saturday evening Crystal and I went to Yeouido Island to check out the 63 Building. The building itself is 63 stories tall and you can see all of Seoul from the top. We didn't make it to the top but we did get as far as the 60th floor. There was an art exhibit at the Sky Cafe and 360 degree views of the city.

63 Building

The exhibit was pretty cool also. There was a variety of work there and even a few Warhol pieces. I'll probably end up back at the 63 Building because there was a ton of other things to do there, including a wax museum and aquarium.

Sunday we took an hour bus ride from Bundang to Yongin to check out Everland. It was really cold outside, like in the 40's so there was hardly anyone at the theme park. The country is also really worried about swine flu so that could have played into the lack of people also. The rides were geared towards a slightly younger crowd but there was still plenty for grownup children to do also.

They were still transitioning to their winter motif so some of the things were not fully set up. It appears there will be sledding and stuff like that to do in the near feature. One of the rides that really caught my interest was the Safari Bus Ride. Basically a group of people load on to a mini bus and travel to a back section of the park. Freely wandering are a variety of super cool animals. There were bears, white tigers, lions, and LIGERS!!!!


Overall it was a pretty solid adventure. Everland is definitely worth the voyage to get to. The safari ride on its own is enough.

Aquarium's Rock!

Since moving to Korea I've been to two different aquariums and have decided aquariums rock big time. Over the weekend Crystal and I went to the COEX Aquarium in Seoul. It started off in the right direction when I found a big box of popcorn for only 1,000 ₩ ($0.84)! The aquarium had an interesting mix of creatures, that included spider monkeys, chickens, and hedgehogs (all of which are not your usually aquarium clientele).

I'm pretty sure I spent 45 minutes infatuated with a ray shark that kept swimming laps around a group of fish. It was so graceful and awesome I had trouble leaving it.

COEX Aquarium

After the ray shark we made our way to a tank full of piranha's. It amazes me how these creatures are born in the wild with amazing color patterns and can be so vicious.

COEX Aquarium

One of the cooler creatures was a turtle that was hanging out. The interesting thing about it was it had two heads! At home there was a snake at the LA Zoo that had two heads and it was always so strange to see.

COEX Aquarium

There were tons of other fish and lots of other things to be seen and done at the Aquarium. If you are looking for something cool and different to do in Seoul this is a solid bet.
