I went on an inexpensive, day-long bus trip to a sheep farm. It was a couple hours outside of Seoul. It only snowed a handful of times this winter in Seoul, and stuck only once, so seeing all this snow was nostalgic of my hometown.
Because it was winter, all the sheep were kept inside. Baby sleepin on mama, no big deal.
We got to feed the sheep hay. I like how they use their lips to grab the hay, so it just feels soft when they do it and you don't have to worry about fingers getting bitten.
Apparently when it's warm, the sheep are allowed to roam everywhere there's a fence. I saw pictures of the place during other seasons, and it's just as gorgeous as it is with the snow.
It was pretty cold, mostly due to the wind, but wearing two pairs of tights instead of the usual one fixes that problem. I wasn't cold at all except for my ears~
Pile of babies~
After the sheep farm, we went and ate lunch. The specialty of that area is a dried fish, called 황태 (hwangtae), so we got that. I'm not a big seafood fan, but I tried it and it was ok! Chewy, not too fishy tasting.
Then we went to a famous spring, one that has an intensely high amount of iron in the water. It's supposedly very good for your health, and it's also a little carbonated coming out of the ground! It tasted odd but good when it was cold, but once it warmed up in the water bottle I brought it tasted like blood, hah.
Final stop on the trip was to see this little land form that is in the same shape as the actual peninsula of Korea.
Tiny Korea inside the normal Korea!
It was so nice getitng out of Seoul to take this trip!! Fresh air and less people and just sitting on the bus and letting them take us everywhere.
