The perfect beach weekend, right at home


Sometimes, you need the plane ticket.


Sometimes, you need the novelty of the foreign.


But sometimes, all you need is a group of friends, a pension on the beach, perfect weather and a birthday to celebrate. And if you add in cartwheel races, a hot grill and s’mores to go, fireworks and sparklers, drum circles and foreigners and impromptu jam sessions, Korean wrestling matches and a million and one (at least attempted) jumping photos in front of a perfect sunset, you can live vibrantly, live powerfully, and live laughing so hard you wake up sore, right in your very own backyard.

      It sounds bad, but I could seriously watch the birthday girl (closest to the camera) eat it at the end of that .gif for HOURS ;)

    This post makes me so nostalgic for the year I spent living on a little island in Jeollanamdo. Great place.
