A trip! Finally!

HOW LIVING IN KOREA HAS CHANGED ME

“It’s not the place [. . . ] It’s the people. We’d have all been the same anywhere else.”

SEOUL SOLO

I mostly use the buddy system in Korea. I go out with either Jared or a friend, but rarely venture out on my own.

PADDLE PARTY

The Han River slices through Seoul. I live on the southern side, but travel north of the Han almost daily. Seoul has done a great job in featuring the Han as part of it’s city. The banks are lined with parks, trails, and restaurants.

NORYANGJIN FISH MARKET

The fish market has long been on my list of things to do in Seoul. I’m a sucker for markets, and this is one of the most famous in Seoul. It is used by thousands of Koreans supplying their restaurants and homes with fresh food. There’s just one problem; I don’t like fish.

JULY: 31 in 31

I’ve done it. 1 year. 12 months. 365 days. An entire year of pictures through this little photography challenge.

KOREAN FOLK VILLAGE

A friend and I recently visited the aptly named Korean Folk Village, located in Suwon. It’s part park, part museum, and all touristy. A perfect summer outing!

OH, KOREA! (#2)

Oh Korea

I often stop to take pictures of the little random bits of daily life here in Korea. Some of these are so amusing that I need to share them with you!

GANGHWA ISLAND

I mentioned in my previous post that Jared and I have made a goal of visiting all of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Korea. Ganghwa Island was the first on our list!

STAMP SEEKER

Did you know that the Republic of Korea has 10 designated UNESCO World Heritage sites? Did you know that the Korea Tourism Organization gives free passports to collect stamps for these sites? (Do you already see where this is going?)
