Jeju Island: One of the New Seven Wonders of the World

Since we work at a hagwon (a private English school in Korea), we have two weeks vacation every year which are predetermined by our school: one in summer and one in winter. This year, we decided to use our summer vacation to go to Jeju Island to see what all the hype is about. Jeju Island is a popular destination for Japanese, Chinese and especially Korean tourists (of course!). We always hear about our students' trips there and it always sounds great.

The trip was especially fun because we got to spend time with all of Spencer's siblings and a few other awesome people. As you might know, Spencer's younger brother and sister are English teachers in Korea too and are living in Seoul. But his older sister is living in California and she came out to Korea to visit!! It was so great to see her and give her a glimpse into our lives over here.

I'm going to make some more specific posts about things we did in Jeju, but for now here's some of my favorite group shots I got from the trip.
