This is the 179th week for Travel Photo Thursday. Welcome! If this week is any indication, we are in for a long hot summer. The humidity is also on the rise. For me, that means trying to move a little slower, and dress a lot lighter! My favorite time of the year in Korea is spring. A month or so ago I shared some shots of the cherry blossoms, now I want to share some random springtime shots, which I think everyone will like.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday 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 post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.
The Twitter hashtag for Travel Photo Thursday is #TPThursday.

Spring in Korea really is a breath of fresh air. We seem to go from gray to green overnight. Life takes on an entirely different look. Here are some my favorite spring shots.
A burst of color at the entrance to one of the many apartment complexes here in Daejeon.
The Korea National Cemetery (Seoul) is famous for its weeping cherry trees. I missed seeing them in full bloom, but beautiful, none the less.
Seoul even has a park dedicated to children, Seoul Children’s Grand Park, and as soon as the weather breaks the crowds take over. Beginning late in April, they put on free concerts. That was my reason for the visit, and the big band music was fantastic.
Snow White and her friends look happy, even if they are a long way from home!
Gorgeous flowers everywhere…
One lone beauty standing out in the crowd…
Springtime contemplation in Korea (On a university campus where a friend works)…
Taken on a 2008 road trip, and still one of my favorite Korea springtime shots.
Thinking of adding Seoul to travel itinerary? While not as expensive as Japan, it’s not as budget friendly as many parts of South East Asia. Transportation and food are fairly reasonable. Accommodation can take a big chunk out of your travel budget, especially in Seoul. Deals can be found, but you need to look hard. I warn people off who want to come here in the summer or winter. Spring or fall are definitely the best time to travel here. If you want to come for the cherry blossoms, you need to plan ahead and you have to watch the weather.
