i think everyone would need a break from the crazy pace of living in a huge city. however I ask myself where the best place to do this or how where is the nearest super market, did not have to think for more than a second. My favorite spot in seoul was the mountain we lived close to, with its long dirt trails that I really enjoyed walking up, passing jungles of trees and bushes and overgrown bushes that they make you believe you have escaped the city completely and are somewhere in the middle of a real rich forest.
I love to clim up to the top and look down at the city. on one side was the city, and on the other was this valley, it reminded me views of the Scottish hills you can sometimes see in the movies, with white, puffy dots of sheep, and lonely, chunky trees. there was this river that ran down the mountain, it was all ways freezing cold and during the one fall i spent there me and my friends and gone miniature cliff diving. the water was cold and clear and felt great against my skin, the only down side the the cutting coldness.
