Gyeongju Summer Trip (part 7): (펜션마을) Pension Village
Pension village? Yes, that's what it was. This signage did portray that every house in this neighborhood is indeed for rent. That's what a pension is. A house/room for rent.
Mbak Ulfa and Om Wawan were looking at the sign that indicated where we stayed: 등잔펜션 (Deungjan Pension).
The sun was about to set and we barely had enough time to enjoy what the village had to offer for new visitors like us.
We're crazy enough to walk down the long road leading to the front gate of the village. It must've been 3 km long or more..Gosh....
But...it's worth-it. We could see different facades, styles, colors, architecture of the pensions that dotted the road along the way.
Oh this one's quite funny. it's called 'Full House'. I am not sure as to whether it refers to the famous K-Drama 'Full House' or it's simply a name.
But..one could mistake it for it being 'full house' and no one would bother asking if there were any vacancies.^^
Okay..let's keep on walking....
As we kept on strolling....green rice fields softened and relaxed our mind. Still, it's hot. But..the mere sight of this green rice field with those 'little' pensions at the background was enough to keep our spirit high...
Yes, right on. Let's explore the neighborhood.
The rice field? Sure..it's not that different from where we came from (back home in Jogjakarta), but the styles of the houses (pensions) were truly different from what we do have back home.
And..that's why we enjoyed seeing new things in Gyeongju.
