Welcome to week 192 of Travel Photo Thursday. Classes started this week, on the cusp of a major Korean holiday, Chuseok. Many students won’t come to classes until after the holiday, and others are eager to see the end of today, so they can head home to their families. For me, it means almost a week off, I am not complaining 🙂 Chuseok is Thanksgiving here. The Koreans honor their ancestors and celebrate the harvest. Although, very early this year, the holiday is not that far removed from my own Canadian Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photos that I’ve taken here in Korea, over the years.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog.

An amazing Buyeo Sunset…
Korean Fan Dancers…(my favorite traditional dance.) Sometimes I think it’s as much as the dance as the beautiful costumes.
Fish’n at Daecheon Beach…
Spinning Disks…The traditional costumes make these guys ROK!
The lotus blossoms at Bongwonsa Temple in Seoul… (I still remember what a fab afternoon I had with all these beautiful blossoms, and having the place to myself!)
For me, the highlight of a Korean meal, banchan…
Springtime in Korea…
I would say this is my favorite shot. One of the reasons being, that it was picked up by National Geographic’s “Intelligent Traveler”.
Taken at Nun’s Temple, Daejeon.
And one last shot…just because :). Also taken in Buyeo when I was looking for “Johnny on the Spot”. 🙂
Looking at all these photos has made me realize how beautiful Korea is, and how many more shots I want to take before I leave. Time to become the “weekend wanderer”, again!
