Here are the photos from Ian and my camera. We are not as artistically talented as Mom, but I thought I'd share nonetheless.
Before we went on our trip, Ian's diploma finally showed up. It arrived on April 27th. It was postmarked January 7th. As you can see, it was sent airmail. Where did it go for three months?
Busan and Beomeosa Temple:
We stayed in hostels (this is the Blue Backpacker). I think Mom adjusted to them pretty well, but I'm not sure she'd chose to do it again.
Tiles with prayers/wishes on them at the temple.
I actually caught a stomach bug in Busan. We stayed in all Saturday night and I stayed behind and slept while Ian and Mom saw the temple.
Common room of the Island Guesthouse.
Giant spider in the common room on the last morning we were there.
Those statues are called dol hareubangs (or "grandfathers" in casually translated English). They are thought to offer protection from demons as they travel through "realities."
Cheonjaeyeon Waterfall. It was too dry to have a fall, but still amazing.
It was very sunny and I am very pale.
Volcanic pillars on Hallasan (Mt. Halla).
Sanbangsan (Mt. Sanbang).
On the jet boat. Mom was pretty nervous about it at first, but we had an awesome time. It was just the three of us, too.
Famous Jeju tangerines.
Fishing off the jetty.
