Seoul Fortress

In-camera panorama by Julia of the view from around Bugaksan.
Today, Julia and I decided spontaneously to see something outside of Hongdae and traveled halfway across town to hike the Seoul Fortress trail. We had a bit of trouble with the directions at first, but once we finally made it to the six-hundred-year-old wall, we knew it was worth all our time. The views were amazing and the parks we wandered through were quiet and very peaceful. I was constantly taken aback at how enormous the city of Seoul is every time we reached a new viewpoint. This city is gorgeous.

Julia and me at Waryong Park (와룡공원), or at least the sign by its entrance.
