OK, slowly but surely, I will finish posting this. Someday… 😛
The forlorn, abandoned train station that’s used to illustrate melancholy in other singers’ MVs or other actors’ pictorials.
We tried to see things a bit differently. It would not be abandoned forever. It was only taking a break, being rewarded for a lifetime of hard work.
The evidence was in the beautiful wildflowers blooming at the deserted train station.
I also took a breather on the bench in front of the train station.
Ganhyun Station in Wonju – a train station that was temporarily resting.
Let me loosen up my body a little!
At the rest area which I stopped by to use the restroom, there was a baseball field [or just a batting cage?].
A game was perfect to loosen up the body that was slightly out of sorts from rushing to get ready since early that morning. Watching the balls flying, I swung my bat excitedly in the wind!! It did not matter if it was a hit or a foul, there was only joy.
Terarosa [coffee factory] is renowned as the hot spot in Gangneung. The place that I suddenly came across on a slightly deserted field had such an exotic exterior, but it was greeting guests just like a very friendly hometown halmeoni [grandma]. The aroma of coffee… The scent of baking bread… I was in paradise once again. ^^
Poring over the menu…
Actually, I am still the type who drinks coffee with a sense of obligation.
This is an obligation as an adult.
A curiosity to know the taste of coffee, an adult drink.
It definitely still tastes bitter to me.
However, I don’t dislike the bitter taste.
I guess everyone becomes a real adult after getting to know this taste of coffee…
“Bitter… But, I don’t dislike it.”
Tomorrow morning, I ought to try to fill up this page while sipping coffee…
[‘Words of Love’ lyrics]
The words “I love you”, I couldn’t say those common words
And I hurt you, I was so bad
Let’s put all the sad memories behind us
And let’s start again like the moment we first saw each other
My travelogue, which I want to convey to the people who listen to my music a similar warmth, really doesn’t have much in it. But then again, there’s no need to visit any grandiose places. If I had to pick somewhere among all the places that I visited on ‘1 Night 2 Days’ in the last 5 years, it would be around Gangneung, Gangwon-do. There, you can easily feel the warmth everywhere you go. Even by the roadside I pulled over to stretch and breathe a breath of fresh air to relieve both mental and physical exhaustion from driving long distances, the cosmos and some unknown wild plants there were giving me a very warm welcome.
There is warmth everywhere.
It’s a better trip without the grandiosity…
I have a fear of heights. I hate terrifying things.
On the way to the seaside, I came across an amusement park. It was the day before it closed.
Before the winter came, this amusement park would once again go into a long break.
Just like bears going into hibernation… ^^
I really underestimated it.
Viking – I should never have taken a ride. I felt fear as if I touched the sky.
I screamed. But why was there laughter underneath the screams?
A sparrow can’t just walk away from a mill, right?
We found a vacant soccer field at the entrance of Mount Odaesan.
Although there was only a deflated soccer ball, we had a 2 vs 2 match on the spot.
Ah~ the air was cold, but really fresh.
A sparrow can’t just walk away from a mill.
The (fresh) air is really great!
