This is a story of how location scouting often just turns into an excuse for a daytrip (or what feels like it, anyway). We were looking for some open, pretty spaces, that also showed off Seoul's beauty spots.
Our friend Jaceon suggested some places in and around Hapjeong, on the edge of the sprawling University district/s of Seoul (a huge area where something like 3 or 4 of the main universities collide and blur. It's a great place.)
We met up at his place for pizza first and it was enormous.

I don't really have any particular intention for this blog post. It was a park. We didn't do much. But I thought it was pretty, so here we are.
There's a huge cycle path along most of Seoul's main river, so occasionally (often) we'd (I'd) have to leap out of the way of a flock of bikes speeding in all directions.
We ended up sitting in a large, open, decked space and watched Jaceon skate a little, watched Nick try to remember how to skate a little, and had me stand on the board and then screech like a banshee if it so much as wiggled.
We decided to head home for the day, but weren't 100% sure how to get back to a subway station. We ended up in an enormous park that was very cool, but also not helping us to get home.
