김제에 가고 있어요

Translation: Going to Gimje.

Here’s another post that took me waaay too long to get around to. Way back in [look up date], I took a trip over to Gimje (김제) to see the Horizon Festival. Gimje is sort of backwoodsie, but only if you also consider 내소사 super backwoodsie. I don’t, because I love out of the way mountains and small townㄴ (especially when they’re so close to fantastic beaches (해변)).

Essentially the Horizon Festival celebrates the fact that it’s located in one of the only places in Korea were you can easily see the horizon. Or something. As I’m certain I saw the horizon when I went to the neighboring beach too. Maybe every coast town in Korea celebrate the Horizon as they do here.


The party broke down into two main themes: water and hay. There were two types of old-school well machines one could use, and a lot of hay art. Tons of hay art. Oh yeah, kites too. Everyone had kites because they seemed to just be handing them out. (Though, to be honest, we might’ve gotten ours for free because we’re foreigners.)
