In this episode of Backpacking Travel TV we explore Nomadic Samuel's roots in a place called Gocheok dong which is nearby Guro and Sindorim stations. As part of a subway challenge - that we completed with several other travel bloggers based in South Korea - we enjoy wandering through traditional Korean homes while noticing many new high rise apartments. I used to live on a shack on top of a roof that has since been demolished and replaced by a modern apartments. I couldn't help but feel somewhat melancholic about it being complete gone given that I endured so much during that first trying year in Seoul. When a part of your past is destroyed it feels a bit more empty. I noticed my hagwon (Korean private institute) where I first taught at many years ago was still open for business. In fact, the advertising on the side of the building still looked nearly identical and I wondered out loud if any of the same teachers I worked with still taught in those tiny little rooms. Audrey had fun putting a lovely flower in her hair and explaining about the Anyang River which is used by many Koreans for inline skating, rollerblading, biking and jogging. There was a lot of new development in the areas, as we both noticed a new Korean baseball stadium being built in the area. Finally, we enjoyed walking through a Korean traditional market that specialized in Korean rice cakes, fresh fruits and dried vegetables. It was a fascinating experience to check out this area of Seoul I hadn't visited in years. Although some things remained the same many things were now different. I suppose that is metaphor for life as it evolves before your eyes: http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/sindorim-guro-seoul-korea

http://nomadicsamuel.com : The name Guro originates from the legend that nine (Korean: gu) old men (Korean: ro) enjoyed longevity in the district.

우리는 근처의 구로와 신도림 역입니다 고척동 동아라는 곳에서 유목민 사무엘의 뿌리를 탐구 배낭 여행 TV이 에피소드에서. 우리는 한국에 본사를 둔 여러 가지 다른 여행 블로거 완료하는 - - 지하철 도전의 일환으로 많은 새로운 고층 아파트를 몰래하는 동안 우리는 한국의 전통 집을 통해 방황 즐길 수 있습니다. 그 이후 현대적인 아파트로 철거 및 교체 된 지붕 꼭대기에 오두막에 살고하는 데 사용됩니다. 내가 도울 수 있지만 완전한 것에 대해 다소 우울 느낄 수 있었다 나는 서울에서 첫 시도 해 동안 너무 많은 인내 주어진 갔다. 과거의 일부가 파괴 될 때 좀 더 빈 느낀다. 내가 처음으로 여전히 비즈니스를위한 오픈했다 몇 년 전에서 강의를 내 학원 (한국어 학원)를 발견했습니다. 사실, 건물의 측면에 광고는 여전히 거의 동일 보면서 난 아직도 그 작은 작은 방에서 가르쳤다 함께 일한 동일한 교사의 경우 나는 큰소리로 생각해. 오드리는 그녀의 머리에 아름다운 꽃을 넣고 인라인 스케이트, 롤러 블레이드, 자전거 및 조깅을위한 많은 한국인에 의해 사용되는 안양 강에 대한 설명 재미를했다. 우리 모두는 지역에 건설되는 새로운 한국 야구 경기장을 눈치 분야에서 새로운 발전의 제비가 있었다. 마지막으로, 한국의 떡, 신선한 과일과 말린 야채를 전문으로하는 한국의 전통 시장을 통해 산책 즐겼다. 내가 몇 년 동안 방문하지 않은 서울이 지역을 확인하는 매혹적인 경험이었다. 몇 가지 남아 있지만 같은 많은 지금은 상황이 달랐다. 당신의 눈 앞에 전개로 나는 삶에 대한 은유라고 가정

Today we are doing the Seoul subway challenge, so we've been assigned line two and the idea is to explore as many stops as possible.

We're going back to an area that used to be a part of my old stomping grounds - Sindorim. I lived here quite a long time ago - five to six years ago. We're going to see how much this area has changed and we're going to be checking out a few more different spots nearby.

Many things have changed in this area but some things remain the same. This old market, this nice little fruit market with all of these different kinds of stops is still around and we're going to check it out.

You may be wondering what these are? Well, here are some hot red peppers. Let's get a zoom up. They've been dried out in the sun.

These are some colorful rice cakes in the market. I personally do not like rice cakes. I think they taste gross but it is a popular treat. Hey, I like them.
