Autumn family trip

My Korean co-worker's wanted to take me on a goodbye trip so we headed an hour or so South of Seoul. I was feeling seedy as from soju drinks the night before, but I put that all aside as we were surrounded by lovely lakes and mountains.

We went to Youngmun mountain and walked through the red and yellow falling leaves up to the beautiful temple and I was so happy to see the monks in full force.

We then spent the afternoon strolling around Semiwon gardens. There were just thousands of lily pads to walk though and the occasional lotus flower holding on for life in the chilly weather.
It was just so lovely and peaceful, the best cure for my hangover and also stopped me from doing some serious shopping damage in Seoul.
