Spring is Finally Arriving

Spring has arrived in Korea, and it’s been a nice change. The winter here can be a little dreary. All the trees and plants die. It’s cold outside, and it can be fairly depressing especially if you have just arrived.

Thankfully, spring is a wonderful time of year here. The trees are starting to show some color. The weather has started to warm up. I even thought about putting on shorts the other day. In a short few weeks, things will be in full blossom here.

When spring comes it brings some of the wonderful things about Korea. Soon the cherry blossoms will be blooming. The hills will turn back to their familiar green as life returns to the trees. All in all spring is quite beautiful here.

Which means it’s a great time to break out the camera, which is what I plan on doing next weekend. Spring makes me want to write and share what is going on. Whereas winter just makes me want to hide away in my apartment and count the days till it’s over.

Korea loves festivals. Big and small, they are everywhere here. They have festivals for different fruits, to lanterns, to flowers, and so much more. Spring is a great time to get out and see some of the festivals, and that is exactly what I plan on doing.

I felt I didn’t get out enough last year, but this year I plan to change that. Several of us have already planned a few trips that will kick off with a trip to the coast next weekend. We will be off to explore and experience the Jindo Mysterious Sea Route, better known as “The Moses Miracle”.

So stay tuned for pictures, and now video from my adventures.

Till next time,
