“True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well being of one’s companion”

Today we did something we've never done before. We went to a different city to see some sights! Gyeongju is about an hour and a half from Daegu, and it was so worth it! What a gorgeous place to visit. It used to be the capital for the Silla Dynasty in like the 8th century, so it has a rich cultural history. All of the buildings have to have traditional, tiled roofs, and there is so much land and greenery everywhere. Coming from Daegu, it was quite an amazing sight! Here, we are completely surrounded by people and buildings, but in Gyeongju there is a lot of room to breathe. It was lovely. We explored the lake, the Wanji Pond, the palace, and the five tombs. We also walked through a traditional folk village, and that was really neat. You got to see what an actual village would have looked like way back in the day. For more information on Gyeongju and all the history and sights, go here.
