red bus

a bus converted into some sort of shop in Heyri

 

It only took a couple of months, but Danielle and I finally got out of Seoul. Taking trips out of town can be a little difficult to squeeze into a weekend, so we waited until our week-long winter break to venture out. We took a bus to the small artist community of Heyri, about a half hour north of town. 

The place was virtually a ghost town; surprising, considering the temps were in the balmy 30’s (F). Did I mention it was a Wednesday? The community is full of galleries, modern architecture, and cafes serving up espresso drinks at nearly $6 a cup. Visually, it is a treat. I can’t wait to take a trip back there, perhaps in a different season, when I’m sure the town is bustling with gallery goers, art, and music. As for our first trip to Heyri, it was great! It’s nice to get away from the big city and the 20 million people that live there.

Heyri, being the artist community that it is, inspired me to take some “artsy” photos. I will post several more of these in the coming days. Enjoy!
