Jalan Jalan Hamo-ri

Hamo-ri is where my home in Jeju is located. My house is under construction.

Jalan jalan means walking around neighbours. It’s one of my favourite Malay words.

Olle route 11 along the rocky beach

Jeju Olle route 11 is crossing the town along the beach.

Sanimul

Sanimul is a fresh water spring at the beach. It was a public bath in old days. These days, old ladies wash some clothes during high tide. Sometimes, I see Haenyeo(female divers) catching seafood in near sea when I sit by Sanimul.

radish field

Radishes grow during winter in Jeju. Often I see neighbours pluck radishes and garlic in Spring.

Canola

Canola flowers are everywhere in Jeju during Spring season but I never get tired of seeing them on my walk.

Old house near Saturday Market Entrance

This old house was almost a ruin last time and it has been renovated last year bit by bit. I never saw the owner but I can really see how much effort he/she made to the house.

Would you like to jalan jalan this lovely town?

 

Myeongwol Pangnamu(Nettle Tree) Colony and Myeongwol fortress

Myeongwol Pangnamu(Nettle Tree)

Instead of a busy schedule visiting several tourist attractions in a day, I much enjoy slowing down a bit and visit local towns. Taking a walk in a small village and see how people live can be more interesting. Myeongwol is a peaceful town where visitors would definitely enjoy walking around and enjoy the atmosphere. I visited in a grey winter day. I was the only person walking around except the locals there. Some newly built cozy houses with the old beautiful nettle trees along the small valley made unique view of the town.

1.5Km north from the town is Myeongwol fortress. On the top of the wall, beautiful scenery and the wind will welcome you.
