Time for me to go outside now

in life •  last month

20180821_182532_0001_1280.jpg

I finally stepped outside 😎
After days of coding and brainstorming, I figured I needed some sunlight.

I went to one of my favorite temples in Seoul (봉은사/bongeunsa). I used to come here a lot during lunchtime when I was working for a company that was nearby. Seoul is overpopulated and people are edgy. This is one part of the city where you get a different atmosphere.

What's funny is that this temple sits at one of the most expensive parts of Seoul (Gangnam). If you look over the walls, you'll see million-dollar homes, ferraris and porches everywhere. You'll also notice the modern buildings. This might be the sanctuary. Or one can argue, if you want peace, you need money.

The temple was built before Seoul was modernized, and people decided not to cover it with concrete. One step outside the front gate lies shopping malls and skyscrapers. Inside, you're at one with the universe.

I've been posting too much about Slotto, so this is a little something different. I might come here again and record a video because I think videos are just more engaging. I hope you enjoy the photos I took. In the future, I might visit some of my other favorite places in Seoul.

I am guessing people are edgy because of their busy work lives? @roundbeargames so glad they decided to keep the temple.

·

Me too!
And yes people are edgy because its very small land with rugged terrain so everybody's packed together. You cant go anywhere in seoul without bumping into somebody. And then lack of opportunities leads to people competing for even the shittiest jobs where they have to work 20 hours a day for barely any money. Even a single second of quiet and peace is very valuable, and nobody has it. No room for genuine kindness.

·
·

Thank you so much for the explanation @roundbeargames I have chatted to people from Seoul before and they talked highly of it but would always say they were happy they moved.

·
·
·

Haha thats the thing! Nobody's happy in seoul. People congratulate you if you move out of the country. People like to party and pretend like theyre living the life. Some of them look rich and fancy but i see it in their eyes theyre rotting inside 😀

aqui mi visita,muy excelente su trabajo,me agrado mucho,saludos

·

thanks i like you too amigo 😆

Woowww.. really beautiful place
Besides the old temple and modern building over there. Waiting for your other exploration in every place at South Korea.

yes i might do other places as well. videos + photos. maybe that'll make things more interesting :)

·
·

So excited for waiting your travel post

Posted using Partiko Android

the right time for vacation after completing designing slotto updates. a holiday with a view of nature and beautiful buildings can eliminate the burden that is in mind after going through very tiring days

·

well it's not a vacation :)
more like a walk in the park!

I love photos. The place is very beautiful

·

thanks! i think next time i'll do photos and videos 👍

·
·

Perfect, so I can know a part of Korea through photos and videos :)

앗 저두 도심에 있는 절 좋아해요 ㅎㅎㅎ 마음이 평온해지는 느낌
봉은사 안가봤는데 다음에 가봐야겠어요~~!

·

케케케 나쁘지 않아요. 전 딱히 종교는 없는데.. 이런데 한번씩 가주면 평온해지긴 하더라고여 ^^

·
·

저두 종교는 없어요 ㅎㅎ 산책하러 갑니당 ㅋ

·
·
·

산책용으로 딱이죠 👍

A very good story, and very interesting to listen to,

·

thanks for being supportive 👍

oooowww!!!! it is amazing city!!! .... i hope one day to come to Seoul... :)

·

yes, certain parts are amazing. but most of the city is shit 😌
but if you ever visit, you know who to call!

The scenery is very beautiful, I like to see the temple, you might be even more beautiful if made in a video..😊

·

it's a strange harmony of buddhist temples and the modern city 😃 but i like it

·
·

I like it very much because I also have a lineage of Buddhism, every time I see a temple remembers the past

·
·
·

Thats interesting 😁
Im not too into religions but i believe in the mind and the mental energy etc 👍

·
·
·
·

Well you are right, everything needs to be done with mind and mentality

Hhhhh...
I connect to this post.
The subscriber depends on many friends also on youtube.
Anyway, if you are on vacation, vacation to Aceh, so we can meet, I really want to visit Korea, but if the price is steem like last year, ... Hhhhhhh

·

·
·

Hopefully we can meet friends, in Aceh there is a place frequented by tourists, namely Sabang island, ... and if the price of steem is $15 I will visit you, hhhh

·
·

lol alt accounts! 😆
thanks anyways

Hhhh, this is a wife @good-darma, nice to get to know you ...

·

hello 👋 nice to meet you

You are a very lucky person, because you have seen what I cannot see in my life. Korea is a country that I want to go to, because the people are friendly. I have never seen this sight extraordinary. I like a clean place, to ban the shoes, I really appreciate cleanliness. Thank you for sharing, hopefully someday I will visit a place that is so beautiful even if it's impossible for me.
Thank for this guys @roundbeargames

·

haha thanks but seoul isn't clean at all! 😃
this temple was well maintained tho. but people are not friendly.
it's a decent place to visit. but people who live here call it 'hell' for a reason 👍

·
·

Why do the people who live here call it 'hell' for a reason?

·
·
·

Zero opportunities, dirty politics, and dictatorship 👍

Amigo saludos que bonitas fotos y que bueno que salió a distraerse y despejar la mente. Siempre hace falta pensar en aire libre saludos espero haya disfrutado ese paseo...

·

yes sometimes you need to get outside and clear your head 😎
i feel tired physically but mentally i'm a little better

Great place! Its structure is very beautiful and interesting. I imagine you managed to relax for awhile.

·

yes a little bit :)
it was uphill so physically i'm very tired but mentally i feel rejuvenated 👍

De verdad que Seúl es una ciudad encantadora @roundbeargames, es increible como podemos encontrar en un solo sitio lo moderno de Seúl y a la vez también encontramos un templo tan hermoso donde la naturaleza es la principal atracción

·

i'm not too fond of seoul as a whole, but this particular place i like 😺
i'm not religious but it gives me peace

without a doubt a very beautiful place to which you have visited once more. It was time for you to go for a walk haha. I hope you have passed incredible.

·

yes it was about time i spent some time outside. i've been staying home for too long! 😐

A very good friend of mine. It is suitable for family travelling with us.😎

·

well, if you're ever in korea just let me know!

Buenas noche amigo @ roundbeargames que bello lugar. Seul es muy precioso su templo que lo Engalana con su naturaleza. Que belleza amigo la fotos tiene buena vista.

·

thanks amigo. seoul overall is not a very nice place. but this little temple i like 😎

Hiii @roundbeargames
It's very nice you share about Soul vacation places. Then I wait you to make video about it😊

·

just random favorite places! probably not for vacation but yes i plan to do more later on :)

Your photo is very beautiful @roundbeargames
Photograph of a temple building surrounded by lagitic scrapers on each side. But the value of a temple is not lost. it is very beautiful, comfortable with trees and green grass.

thanks.

·

Yes its a weird look but i like it. Its very rare that i say something good about seoul! 😎

·

Indeed 😎

This post is amazing, from going to temples in Tokyo, I remember the contrast between the busy life of the capital and the premise of different Shinto sanctuaries. I find lots of beauty in you taking the time to replenish heart and soul.

·

Ive never been to japan but that sounds neat.
I believe in refreshing the mind 😄
It was uphill, so a bit if exercise as well lol

천재한국인이신가요?

·

헐.. 걍 한국인이욤 ㅋㅋ 👍

Historical temple, nice and interesting

I want you to share more photos of beautiful and historic buildings in your country @roundbeargames

·

thanks. seoul doesn't have too much history. but i plan to share more stuff from my daily life :)

·
·

Great idea

I'm waiting for your next post @roundbeargames 🙂

·
·
·

I think im gonna do it every monday haha

·
·
·
·

👍😊

@roundbeargames, Good to know that you've came out after some time and after some heavy work for sure, but good thing is whatever work you've done it's working and as you said now it's time for the sun light.

And literally speaking, sometimes we see these differences means, no matter how much development we see in the name of Huge Buildings, some places never change because it's beauty stays in what it is and in it's own simplicity.

For sure this place is so beautiful and peaceful and for sure i can say that you've had an peaceful time hear and also took recharging sunlight and beautiful natural greenery.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

·

yes i realized i haven't been getting enough sunlight! 😆
i plan to actually do this more often from now on. maybe even record videos while i'm outside and share shit.
thanks for your support and you stay blessed too my friend.

·
·

Thank you so much for your kind words and enjoy your day ahead. Stay blessed. 🙂

You had time without sharing some photos and that place It looks amazing! The temple and its surroundings are very beautiful, someday I would like to visit one like that.

·

Maybe later on i will invite you to seoul 😆

Very interesting photo. It's like I went on a trip.

Fan of the photos of the Republic of Korea ..
