Happy New Year!

I hope all are blessed with the passing of one year to the inception of the new. It's been extremely cold here in Korea. Much colder than I remember it being the past few years. It's official... I hate winter. Other than that, I'm braving the cold to walk to work every weekday.
I've also taken up a new hobby of mountain hiking. I heard through word of mouth that Korea is 90% mountains. It explains why there are so many people wearing hiking gear on the subway, most likely heading to their destination/hike. I've climbed two mountains since making this my new hobby and I love it.
In the past, I've tried to join a gym to lose weight and get myself into shape. The bad thing about joining a gym is that it's hard to stay motivated. I find myself unmotivated to go to the gym. I also can't wait to get out of there when I am there.
The thing about mountain climbing is that you can't stop midway. No matter how tired I feel or anybody feels there's still always a journey back down. I've made it to both peaks of both mountains I've climbed.
1. DoBong Mountain
2. BukHan Mountain

Hey that's really cool Luis! Good for you my friend, I've always thought mountain climbing was really cool, only seen it on t.v. of course.
I hate winter too my friend, it has been so freakin cold here this year. On the news they said we hadn't seen this cold a winter in nearly 20 years. And even Miami Fl. got down to like 42 degrees! No oranges this year!
take care friend,
Julian
