This video was supposed to come out last week, but because we had gone to Beijing, we had our mini Beijing video week last week. Now back to normal, kinda. We’re publishing this and then driving to the airport for LA. WOOT! Sorry if we can’t comment on this video as much as we usually do: we’ll get to commenting as soon as we land! Anyhow, here’s the last of the video we shot during our trip to G-Dragon’s Villa!
We had always wanted to film a Korean rest stop, and we were ultra excited when we saw one along the way to GD’s Villa, though this one isn’t as shazaaming as other ones we were on when we went on road trips with our schools back when we were teachers. Still: we wanted to show you a bit of what it looks like. Check out those chairs! They’re supposed to be massage chairs but I’m guessing that they died out through years of use. One thing we cut out from the video: the chair didn’t work and was clearly quite old, but it had one thing really enjoyable about it. After all its years of use, no one peeled the plastic off the remote. No one! It was all wrinkled and puckered. I peeled that badboy off so fast. UGGGHH! I love peeling plastic off stuff.
We also were a bit confused by the blood pressure machines. What do you need a blood pressure machine for on a road trip? I don’t get it. Is it to show your kids proof that they need to stop asking you if you’re there yet? LOOK AT WHAT YOU’RE DOING TO ME, YOU RUNTS!!!
This place had only one restaurant that offered limited food options. We’ve been to others that are more similar to what you see in HomePlus: one cashier that overlooks a bunch of different style restaurants, and the food there was a lot better than just the instant powdered Jajangmyeon stuff. We’ve seen some with fried food stuffs, especially potatoes. Lots of potatoes.
Apologies for the bad audio, by the way. We turned on our mics, but the switch moved over in our bag to a different input, and then patooey, no audio! Yargh! We’ve done that mistake a few times lately. Not gonna happen again. We’re ultra cautious now. But it’s so annoying!!!!!!!
We’ve got a few bloopers for this week’s video as well, including a discussion on how to pronounce “blood pressure.” It’s not easy for us as it once was…
Lastly, we hope you liked our road trip videos! We plan on doing something big when we get back from LA at the end of June. Lots of driving! Lots of adventure! Make sure you don’t miss out on any of it by clicking on the pretty button below, right here!
