A New Found Love for the Spring Season


SRPING SeasonThis was the first year I lived somewhere that has more than one season (unless you count slightly more prevalence of rain). I know that’s probably baffling for a lot of people, including my boyfriend who walked around in the dead of Korean winter with a t-shirt on. For me, though, it was a big deal.

You might remember my commemoration of the fall foliage back in November, or the highlights of what felt like a Korean tundra in January. No other season, however, compares to spring. From the festivals to the weather, it’s the perfect time of year.

It’s become a bit of a ritual for me to pick out my favorite pictures from each season to share here, so I’m back again after the flowers have bloomed and blossomed all over Daegu. They were absolutely beautiful… Don’t forget to tell me which picture you like best in a comment below!

A touch of cherry reflections.

Haedong Yonggungsa Temple (해동 용궁사)  is by far one of the coolest temples in Korea because it’s by the sea!

One of the best attractions of the Jinhae Flower Festival mentioned above is the train tracks.

Umbrellas in Season

These colorful umbrellas were a huge hit this year.

7Sunflowers

These sunflowers are sold at markets and used for medicinal purposes!

You know the season is changing when it rains – Busan’s Gamcheon Culture Village (부산 감천문화마을)

9Spring Coconuts

I was so excited to have coconut water, it didn’t even matter that they were small. I love the yellow garnish.

I jumped so fast when I saw this woman dressed in all blue riding through the Yuchae flowers. So bright and beautiful!
