After a week in Daejon, we will gathered our things and take the train to Seoul. We will visit the historical and modern landmarks in addition to the famous districts and streets. In order to explore the Buddhist faith and philosophy, we will go on a one-day trip to visit the Buddhist temple, Geumsunsa, situated in Bukhansan National Park. Here a local monk will take good care of us as she guides us through the Buddhist beliefs and customs. We will be challenged to do the 108 procrastinations, a 4am morning ritual and a breathtaking hike up the mountain.

Last year, we were fortunate enough to experience the other end of the Korea’s cultural spectrum. As we spectated a live match of the computer game “League of Legends” at Seoul Giga Arena. A great experience for all to witness the atmosphere at the arena. We hope to repeat the success next year if we are lucky enough to get tickets.
