MY HEART pounded as I took the first steps of my long awaited journey. Time out from my hectic city life was just what I needed. I took a nap as I headed towards Incheon Port.
I set sail away from the dark city skies, off to find my own little paradise.
The sun shined down on my little getaway.
After arriving on Ijak Island. I headed up towards Mt. Buah. The road was well-paved, so it was easy to walk up to the mountain.
At the summit, the true beauty of Ijak Island revealed itself. Blending together, the mountain and the sea provided a nice contrast to city buildings.
I headed off to one of the beaches I saw from up on the summit. To my amazement, the beach was made up of both sand and mud. In the mud flats, crabs and clams could be caught for a nice meal.
Leaving the port, I got a final glimpse of my little haven. The only regret I had was that I did not realize sooner that there was such a wonderful place so clse by. If we look hard enough, scenic destinations are only a footstep away. So head out now in search of your own little paradise!
