I really enjoyed the trip to korea! KOREA ROX! You won't regret going there, I'm serious. The scenery is nice, the people are nice, the streets are nice, the environment is very nice. Well my family went there for nine days, and we had a lot of fun together, we've drawn closer together as a family. And the purpose of going for a holiday is not about where we go, what we eat or do, but it's the time we spend together as a family, that is priceless would you agree with me? The LORD had been with us every second of the trip, he sent three korean people to help us, and that has saved us a lot of time navigating around. Not once did we forget to say our grace before eating or drinking, because we constantly reminded one another to say grace, and we did it as a family, and the bonds within our family have been strengthened =)
Korea is a place generally very peaceful, the place is litter-free, very clean, the people are generally very nice people, very helpful, even when they don't understand us they will do their best to make sure that we are understood, very cool and I love the place! I might want to go there again to see a different part next time!
Well I just wanna show you some photos, I've left a caption under it so you know what you're looking at, enjoy!!!


Let's begin with the FOOD:


Well this was a cup of coke I was drinking on the plane =) I missed coke when I was in Korea =(


This was our first meal after we landed in the morning.


This was lunch for the second day I think =)) That's udon by the way.


Udon, with warm soup and a lil chilli powder.


Ramen, looks delicious..


The typical starter you get when you eat at any shop.


The same as before, at another shop.


Our dinner on the 5th day, we did the cooking and we messed up the pan with burnt food, the shop owner must have gone mad scrubbing that off =X


Raw beef cooking on the pan.


It's quite common to see this fish snack in Korea, it contains a lil red bean paste, and is deep-fried.


Next let's take a look at the streets:


Maple trees along the roads..


One of the train stations we're heading to..


A interesting looking house. Many houses in this small town have a very unique design, this one captured my eyes first, so I shot at it.


This is a small street in the small town.


Outside a shop we ate in the small town. We also ate at the shop opposite this one, on the other side of the road.


Railway tracks.


Streets in Korea look like this.


This is a wet market. We did some shopping there.


A pic of the street.


We're inside a bus asking for directions.


Next, a pic of the inside of a food shop:


This is how a normal food shop looks like.

Next, a some for fun shots:


Wore this to Korea, some Koreans stared at me, probably they were embarassed that a tourist loved their country more than they did?


This is the Korean slipper, very cute like those you see in MapleStory haha


Spotted this dog, he barked at me when I took that photo. This photo was taken on a mountain.

Now let's take a look at some scenery:


Some scenic sites, there's nothing much to describe, it looks beautiful during winter, though obviously I would prefer autumn. This is a small stream of water.


Taken from another angle.


Same stream, we while we walked further down.


We hiked to admire some scenery.


A steep slope on the left measures about 30 metres high.


Slippery! If you fall you might not survive.


That's me posing under a lil maple tree, it was the only tree with leaves among a whole row of bare trees. It was beautiful so I decided to take a photo with it ^^


The same place where I took the photo of the dog, walk along the driveway a little more and you'll see the dog behind the house and those rocks..

Some family shots, very few tho, most are candid that's why:


A family photo taken with a giant dinosaur, if I'm not wrong it measures 27 feet long. We went there to look at some dinosaur fossils.


Taken in one of the scenic sites. We were cold, but the sun kept us going.

Lastly, the icy ski resorts:


Ski resort.





This is the skiing site.


The hotel of the ski resort. It's like $1000 per day I think, for five. It was way way too ex we left the ski resort after 1/2 hour.


Enjoyed the photos? Have you picked Korea as the country for your next vacation? Well I have many more photos to show you, if by now you're convinced that Korea's a real nice place, Korea's even better than that after I show you the remaining thousands of photos. Well that's all from me about Korea. I really did enjoy everything there.
