Jeju Island Part I: Olle Trails

Our mid-August anniversary trip to Jeju seems like a lifetime ago.  The four days we spent there were the perfect blend of down-time and activity.  The places we saw on the island were all new (besides a trip to our favorite Indian restaurant in this world! ) and we had a much different trip than last time.  This time around didn't include a four star hotel with a pool or hours lounging at the beach.  We wanted to truly embrace the natural and unique beauty of Jeju.  I think we succeeded.
Lunch after arrival: kimchi mandu and spicy cold noodles

Sun dried peppers

And that was just day one :)
