Isn’t it amazing how our attitude and our perspective change everything, much as black and white changes the feeling of this photo from the colour version previously posted?
On a difficult journey, I was touched by this couple walking hand in hand.
I saw the tall, daunting trees creating shadow and darkness.
Fear and sadness creep in and take root.
Yet in the midst of my dark thoughts, this couple calmly walks, savoring an afternoon stroll through the park. Not far away the early cherry blossoms are displaying a profusion of deep pink, while the bright, cheerful yellow of the narcissus cover the ground.
Sometimes we need help to change our perspective and see past our fear!
Reach out to someone today. Maybe you can be the voice that changes their perspective and turns their fear to hope. Or be the trusted friend who reaches out for their hand, promising to walk through the darkness with them until they find their spring!
Treasure those who provide you strength, comfort, joy and companionship on your journey!
South Korea is the perfect blend of contemporary energy and reverence for the traditional. Over the past several years, it has gained international attention for the incredible talent of its singers including the pop group BTS which has spoken at the United Nations, collaborated with Sia, Halsey and other singers and has earned Billboard Music Awards and American Music Awards. In addition, its filmmakers, including Bong Joon-ho who created "Parasite," have earned the respect of film critics worldwide.
South Korea's breath-taking scenery blends beautiful modern city buildings with centuries-old palaces such as Gyeongbokgung Palace which was the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty. Built in 1395, it is located in northern Seoul, South Korea. The largest of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon dynasty, Gyeongbokgung served as the home of Kings of the Joseon dynasty, the Kings' households, as well as the government of Joseon. You'll find some locals and even tourists visiting there wearing hanbok, a traditional Korean dress for semi-formal or formal attire during traditional occasions such as festivals, celebrations, and ceremonies.
While you can't travel there right now in person, you certainly can from your couch in today's 360-degree virtual tour video.

I’ve travelled more in 2020 than the past two years combined.
When Covid raised its ugly head in March, they only adventures I had were masking up and going to the grocery store and back home again.
As states begin to open up again, I had clients who had suffered a huge revenue loss and asked me to help them get the word out that travel was open and safe again.
During that time, I chose collaborations that I felt were safe for my followers to do themselves and still abide by the CDC recommendations. ( I hope we all know those by now) 🙌🏼🙌🏼

Found a quote that’s incredibly fitting at the moment:
“I say let the world go to hell, but I should always have my tea.”
– Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky
Did you know that South Korea is the 29th largest tea producer in the world with a yearly output of around 3,200 tons?
Boseong is the most famous green tea area in Korea. Here, the tea plantation of Daehan Dawon is the largest and oldest tea plantation in the county of Boseong.

Cuando compré este vestido le dije a @maddyland "estás segura que no es como una bata de hospital, un look de Hunger Games o algo así?" Y me dijo noo, no lo parece. Y claro, cuando me muevo se ve muy normalito; pero en la foto, sentada, con el pabellón tradicional atrás, siento que perfectamente podría ser la portada de mi libro de autoayuda 🤣.
¿A ustedes les gusta la arquitectura tradicional coreana? A mi no me pueden aburrir los diseños ni los colores, me puedo quedar "pegada" mucho rato mirando todos los detalles 🤍

Witness nature in all its splendour at Gochangeupseong Fortress.🌳

A walk along the walls brings you to a beautiful bamboo forest. Standing in front of it you feel dwarfed by the sheer size of the natural shoots towering over you.🌴 Be prepared to be mesmerized with the lush green foliage of the indigenous Moso Bamboo which forms some breathtaking patterns.✨
