The 52nd annual Jinhae Gunhangje Festival

In early April, I went to the 52nd annual Jinhae Gunhangje Festival (진해군항제) also known as the Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival. I don’t mind crowds and always have a good time at festivals in Korea, but surprisingly, I’ve never been to this festival before. It was great!

The city boasts that they have the most cherry blossom trees in the world. There are apparently 360,000 trees blossoming at once, if you’re curious.

Friends were discouraging me from going to the festival. Before I went to Jinhae, people were telling me that it would be too crowded (“everyone will be in your pictures” and “it’ll be so difficult to get there and back”), that the flowers had blossomed too early, and that it would rain. I still went, and I’m happy I did.


South Korea Trip- Jinhae 진해

Alright you can check out the video of my trip from Busan to Jinhae in South Korea. The trip in total was 122 kms. I rode the #2 highway to Jinhae and back. On the trip I checked out several parks including Dream Park, Energy Park and Marine Park. I got to ride in an electric car and almost saw a wall fortress. I hope everyone is well. I am currently in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It is snowing here which seems crazy for October. Well at least I get to leave in a week. Each video is a one day trip. I start the day with no plan other than a final destination. By the end of the day I have compiled 2-4 hours of footage on two cameras.
