I was praying all week that this weekend would have good weather – and my prayers were answered! It’s technically monsoon season now here in South Korea, so the days are mostly grey with a smattering of rain here and there. Thankfully Saturday was a beautifully sunny and hot day!
After my quick trip to the doctors and my bi-weekly trip to get my nails changed up, I took the subway out to Yeouido Park. It’s right by the Han River and it was definitely worth the trip!
The weather leaving Bupyeong was hot and a little humid. Kind of uncomfortable actually. I was regretting leaving my sun umbrella at home, opting instead for a rain umbrella just in case a random shower popped up while I was out.
Getting to Yeouido station, the weather was vastly different! What a change!! Stepping out from the station into the daylight, the temperature had dropped a few degrees making it bearable for a walk in the park. There was also the most amazing breeze! It actually flipped my umbrella almost out of my hand, bending a few of the posts the wrong way. I walked the 5 minutes to the park and put my umbrella away. In the park, the breeze was diverted, and the result was the most amazing temperature for walking. I took a leisurely walk around, stopping to rest and people watch a few times and getting some great pictures.
I am so glad that the rains held off for the weekend so I could squeeze in some time in the park! Next time however, I think I might rent a form of transportation. You can rent bikes for about $2 an hour, and I think you can even rent motorized options like scooters and segways.
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy from my brief trip around the park:
