Every year in we travel to Korea for summer working holidays. This (fifth) time was different while we had small one to accompany us. Surprisingly everything went very smoothly (24 hours long journey with three flights and two transfers btw) …just parents didn’t had much/any sleep 🙂
While Pilljae and Namu stayed with the family I was traveling around Korea and worked. In Seoul I stayed for two weeks and in two days off I even went to the border with North Korea…
…and travel around Seoul.
I spent one week in Jeju island (using work as excuse :))…
… and the rest of the time in Pilljae’s birth place, city Busan.
Of course most of the travel was still about work…
…and serious meditation (10-day Vipassana course).
After two months was time to say goodbye and lights replied to us:
It’s simple alternative to rope wall, much easier to install and much cheaper (considering you already have bunk bed :)). You cannot use it for everything what porper rope wall provides, but its good option for those who don’t have rope wall at home.
- Bunk bed – strong, massive wood
- Two ropes – should be shorter than standard ropes (maybe 3/4), while bunk bed is not as high as standard upper rope jack.
- For hanging you need extra rope and you need to remove board or two of upper bed, so you can put legs throught it and hook with them.
Then you are ready to go. ***If you didn’t try rope hanging before, first learn it with qualified Iyengar yoga teacher and only then try it home alone. Coming in and out from hanging in bunk bend is little more unstable/unsafe/harder, so be carefull, don’t brake your neck!
And there is something more:
Ladder should be firmly fixed to the bunk and strong by itself. Use it equaly as wall bars, for standing leg streches, forward bends, side bends etc.
And in the end, don’t forget on Savasana.
As you see bunk bed is perfect prop to use! 🙂 Enjoy
