JinJu Lantern Festival

David, myself, Julie, Amanda and Brandon decided to take a trip to JinJu for the annual Lantern Festival. David, myself and Julie have been the year before but we didn’t have enough time to explore the whole site so I was extremely excited to go back. It was such a pretty autumn day. It was still nice and warm but not too hot. Precious conditions in Korea!


Jinhae's Cherry Blossom Festival

Korea is a country that loves a good festival. These range from the beauty of Jinhae's Cherry Blossom Festival or the dazzling lights of Jinju's Lantern Festival; to the charming cultural ones such as Gwangju's Kimchi Festival or Jindo's Moses Walk; to the downright weird such as Cheongsando's 'Slow Walking Festival'.

 

Oh, and the epicness that is the Mud Festival.
