Recently, during a return trip to beautiful Gapyeong and its Nami Island, we decided to check out another tourist spot in the area. Gapyeong's lush countryside offers quite a few attractions -- in addition to Nami, two of the most popular are the Garden of Morning Calm and Petite France. We made this visit to Gapyeong while my sister was here, having taken the long way home from her teaching job in France. So, obviously, we had to visit the French "village" in Korea.

By "day trip" I mean just an hour or two of travel from Seoul, with activities that can be accomplished in one day, and time to get all the way home again before bed. Technically, anywhere in the entire country could be seen as a day trip as it's approximately the size of Indiana, but here are my favorite spots that are really easy to get to and from.

This past weekend, I was excited to be able to cross another destination off my ever growing Korea Bucket List: Namiseom. This gorgeous, half moon shaped island has always looked appealing with its famous tree-lined paths and photogenic surroundings, so some fellow English teachers and I took full advantage of its proximity to Seoul and took an excellent day trip to the island!
