My Trip to Jeju Island
(1) My trip to Jeju Island last summer was a turning point
in my short experience of living in Korea.
(2) Before the trip, I thought of Korea as a place with big,
Think of A as B
exciting cities and lots of cool pop music.
(3) Jeju Island changed all that.

(4) Now I am considering whether I should study to
become a geologist!

(10) I spent three days on the island, and each day
brought new and unforgettable wonders.
(11) Here are the highlights of my Jeju experience.

(12) On the day / I arrived, I made my way to the

(13) These caves are actually a giant lava tube system, which
offers a fascinating underground experience.
(14) From my guide, I learned that a lava tube is a long cave
that forms when molten lava flows underground.

(15) This cave is actually 7,416 meters long, making it one of
the longest in the world.
세상에서 가장 긴 것 중 하나 (cave)
(14) Only 1 km of the cave is open to visitors, though.
(15) Most impressive was the massive size of the tube.

the lava formations of unique shapes covering the walls
and ceilings along the walk.
(19) The highlight of the tour was a giant lava tower
close to the end:

(20) Extending from the ceiling ofA the cave to the

floor, it could easily be the world’s tallest.
(21) My guide explained that it was formed when the
lava flow tube broke and poured
the molten rock
onto a lower level.
(22) On the second day, I went to Seongsan-ri on the eastern
특정한 날 앞에
tip of the island.
(23) Seongsan-ri is a small coastal townis)
famous for a 182
meter volcanic rock reaching out from the sea.
(24) It is from an extinct volcano, Seongsan Ilchubong,
which means “sunrise peak.”

(28) Unfortunately I couldn’t see anything because it was raining
when I reached the peak.
(29) The guide told me I should come back to celebrate the
beginning of the new year, when the people of Jeju hold a festival
called “Seongsan Sunrise Festival.”
(30) Now I have a good reason to return to Jeju Island in winter.
(31) My destination for my last day on Jeju Island was Mt.
(32) It was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2002
and has been carefully protected ever since.
(33) Because its scenery changes each season,사people are said
to visit the island several times a year to see different “faces”

of the mountain.
(34) My climb started early in the morning.
(35) For the first few kilometers, the trail went through grasslands and

I saw a few large Asian oak trees.
(36) As I climbed higher, the grasslands gave way to beautiful cedar

(36) The tail became harder after I had walked about 4
kilometers on the mountain.
(37) I had to be careful where I stepped and sometimes had to even use
부사절 접속사: ~하는 곳에
(38) After 5 hours of hard climbing, I finally stood at the crater’s edge.
(39) From there / I was able to look into a beautiful blue lake called
“Baengnokdam”,literally meaning “white deer lake.”
(40) The name of the lake comes from an old story of the
mountain gods who used to play there with white deer.

(41) I didn’t see any mountain gods, but I did hear that more
than a thousand deer live on the mountain.
(42) It made my day / as the weather at the top was excellent.
(43) I could see far out into the East China Sea, as well as all of

(44) Looking out from high on the mountain, I understood why
= While I looked out : 분사구문
UNESCO considered Jeju Island exceptional for its “outstanding

beauty” and “significant
value to geologists.”
(45) Reaching the top of the mountain taught me that there is

grown in Australia for mass consumption.
(42) Unfortunately, its taste is inferior to that of the
sweeter Cavendish, and it may never reach the same

level of global popularity as the Cavendish.
(43) FHIA is also currently testing a few other kinds of
banana for world markets.
