If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll know how much I love the traditional Korean architecture. Walking around the beautiful Eunpyeong Hanok Village is a real treat with the many homes along the winding streets. It is a more recent development and not as famous as the Bukchon Hanok Village, but if you’re going to visit Seoul (whenever everyone is able to...) I highly recommend coming to this spot as it’s less crowded and just as nice!

While far smaller than places like Seoul, I'm always finding new ways of looking at #boryeong . The Daecheoncheon River meets the Yellow Sea #panasonicphotography
$$ Zapangi cafe is a really cool cafe, with the front dood styled like a vending machine. Its another picture perfect cafe in Seoul.
I got a really cute rose milk tea for 6,500 won. (It was quite small tho)
Last year I went on a solo trip to Busan. My hostel was right near Gwangali beach, so each night I was there, I ended up going to the beach and taking photos. The Gwangan Bridge off in the distance is gorgeous and I loved the setting. As is true with all of my images, I remember the feeling I had when I took them and these photos are especially poignant for me. I was going through a tough time and I took the trip to Busan to clear my mind a bit. Each night as I sat on the beach was soothing, even if just a short respite. I think one of the most important things I’ve learned during my time in Korea is that sometimes stuff happens, but I just need to keep going and fix those problems. It’s a tough lesson, but an important one. Everyone loves to talk about how wonderful this country is, and trust me it’s pretty amazing, but the challenges that have been thrown my way here are what have forced me to grow and learn more about myself. Anyways, thanks for reading. Hope everyone is doing well ✌🏻

Beautifully painted and sculpted rooftops in Deoksugung, a walled compound of palaces in Seoul, South Korea.
The compound was home to Korea's royal family during the Joseon monarchy, up until the annexation of Korea by Japan in 1910.
It's one of five grand palaces built by the Joseon dynasty, and the buildings are of wildly varying styles.
What I enjoyed most when exploring Deoksugung were the elaborate palace roofs, where artists used ornate paintwork and retina-sizzling colours to create heavenly designs.

The #hanokvillage in Jeonju is one of my favorite places to visit. You can rent a #hanbok and walk around using the hundreds of unique homes as a backdrop for your photos. You can even stay in one overnight, and the heated floors. Where's your favorite place in Korea?
