Travel Photo Thursday, March 24, 2010, Spring Time In Rural Korea

Posted by on Mar 24, 2011 in Travel Photo Thursday, Uncategorized | 25 comments

Here we are for another week of TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY. I’m here in Daejeon wondering when spring might arrive. We’ve had a cold winter here in Korea. Luckily, I missed most of it, but now I’m anxious to feel a bit of warmth and see the spring flowers.

To join in the fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. Please remember to leave a comment after you link. Finally, if you have a few moments, visit the others who have linked. Perhaps you can give them a tweet, a stumble, or a comment on their TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY.

If you do tweet a shot, please use the hashtag #TPThursday.

This shot was taken from a mountain top just outside of Daejeon on a beautiful spring day in 2009. Hiking is a popular past time here. Hiking groups are common, and it usually costs very little to hike with a local group. In many cases it’s the cost of your own lunch. If you’re a budget traveler visiting Korea, a mountain hike is a great way to spend a day.

  1. Awesome photo of mountains.Love this link as well.

  2. This photo is awesome. For some reason I didn’t expect Korea to be so beautiful. I hope one day I will get the chance to visit.

    • Drop over anytime. You can see a lot in a short amount of time. Korea has a great transportation system, and it’s cheap.

  3. Beautiful picture, I like the colors and composition 🙂

  4. Springtime has always been my favorite season in Korea. THanks for the reminder. Is it really Thursday, again?

  5. Springtime is a wonderful time of year anywhere. Haven’t been to Korea, but Japan in blossom time is memorable.
    My Travel Photo Thursday is some relief while driving…after the hectic Blog4NZ I need a laugh!

  6. I am embarrassed to say that I haven’t ever seen a picture of the countryside of Korea. It is so rugged!

  7. That is absolutely stunning photo Nancie! I love Korea! I visited Nami and Jeju but never been to Daejeon so this one is something new and beautiful to look at…. Thank you so much for sharing..:) XOX

    • Drop by for a visit anytime Jori. Funny, I’ve lived here over ten years and have never been to Jeju. I really must do that one of these days.

  8. The countryside looks like it would be right up my alley and fantastic for hiking. I’m not hearing of anywhere in the world right now where spring is on time. Looking forward to a little warmth in Vancouver too.

    • I’m sure you’d love the hiking here Leigh. Lots of people bike as well.

  9. Another nice photo! I didn’t have much of an impression of Korea outside of Seoul, but it looks like there’s lots of beautiful nature to explore too.

    • Michael…The Korean countryside is lovely. The towns and cities are ho hum. Seoul does have a nice skyline at night.

  10. Beautiful photo. I’d love to hike there. Such a gorgeous place to sit outside and have lunch.

  11. Lovely photo. I really want to make it back to Korea. Such beauty.

    • Come for a visit. Spring is the best time to visit. I’d wait for a week of two this year. We’re still waiting for the first flowers to bloom.

  12. That’s a gorgeous photo. I am determined, one day, to join in your Travel Photo Thursday. It’s a great idea…but we’re just sooooo disorganised and I always forget it’s Thursday! Next week… 🙂

    • Hi Julia…The only reason I ever know it’s Thursday is that I have to put up the first photo!! Hope to see you this week.

  13. Great pic .!!!!

  14. Thank you. Hope to see a photo from you this week 🙂
