Budget Travelers Sandbox is One YEAR OLD! And…..

Posted by on Dec 9, 2010 in Destinations, Korea, Travel Photo Thursday | 31 comments

to celebrate, we’re introducing a new weekly feature………………..TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY!

Here’s how it works. Every Thursday I will publish a travel photo from my archives along with a “Mr. Linky” box. Now, it’s your turn. You can join in the fun by publishing  a TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY post on your blog. You may want to include a short story to go along with the photo………..totally up to you. Once you publish your post come over to Budget Travelers Sandbox and  paste your link into Mr. Linky. Then, leave a comment on my photo. If you have the time, check out those that have linked before you. Leaving comments, tweets, stumbles, or whatever, would no doubt be appreciated.

Participation means that you will gain at least one new follower…………….ME, and probably a whole lot more. Isn’t that what we all want more of,  traffic? Also, you’ll get to look at some beautiful photography, and plan (dream about) your next adventure.

This week’s photo is a shot that I took at the “Nuns Temple” in Daejeon. This photo was featured on the National Geographic Traveler blog, “Intelligent Travel”  back in March 2008. You can see it here.
