On June 3rd 2022, 2 YG members and 2 exchange students met at the front gate of Yonsei University at 6:00pm. We took a bus to get to Mangwon Market while chatting and getting to know each other on the way. Arriving at the marketplace, we took a while to look around the various goods that were sold. We tried out different foods such as marshmallow icecreams, Takoyaki, and chicken. We had the opport...
On October 30th 2pm, with full excitement, four of the YG members met in front of the red periscope in Shinchon. We were all seeking for a meaningful experience and new friends, so waiting for the terminal bus quite a long was not a problem.
After 2 hours of bus, we arrived at Gangwha and went into a grocery shopping in Plusmart to prepare for our barbeque and the snack party. We had a budget of 100,000\, so we could buy a lot of snacks and food. The half of our food was for the barbeque, especially for Ssam(쌈), and we didn’t forget to prepare our alcohol.
Around 6pm, we finally arrived at the glamping site. We were chatting, talking, and already enjoying our trip. There were already many people in Aronium. We briefly finished our check-in. Our tent was giant, and there was a floor heat, so no worries for being cold. We went to the barbeque site after unpacking our bags, since we were ravenous at that point.
Our dinner was really successful; two packs of pork was more than enough for all of us, and the grilled mushrooms, onion, and kimchi were all delicious. We talked about our travel experience, different high school cultures and some favorite things to do.
We were too full to eat ramen and sausage, but we still had a space for s’mores. Grilled marshmallow and chocolate were squeezed between biscuits. Although we couldn’t find big white marshmallow and typical biscuits, we could find some alternative ingredients and it was delicious. Sweet potatoes were also grilled between the burning charcoals.
After having so much fun in the barbeque site, we went back into our tent. The floor was warm, so we lied down, chatting and playing games. We played a mini card game called Hali Gali and learned Korean alcohol games together. It was interesting to hear how the alcohol games in the States are different.
Soon, we emptied up of all our drinks, and since it was a Halloween eve, we watched a horror movie, Coraline. This movie was my childhood nightmare, but it was just fun to watch after growing up. Before going to bed, we shared and listened to bunch of our favorite music videos.
The next day, we slept until 10am, packed our bags, and went back to Shinchon. It had been only about 24 hours, but we all had so much fun and became friends to each other. Hope we stay in touch and hang out again!
