All photos were taken in Nami Island, South Korea. Nami was made famous because of the Korean telenovela (tv series) “Winter Sonata”.
I wrote this blog while waiting for the whole fam to get ready. As usual, we always start pretty late. That is beside the fact that the condo apartment we rented has 2 bathrooms. Lol!
This is my Day-28 entry to 365 Photo Challenge and if you care to join, read the guidelines here.
It seems like a fun place!
Impressive sculpture. I’ll write something like that soon.
I like the statues!!!!!
Very cool captures! I love this type of stuff
Thank you very much. I like your captured shot of the snow in your first run article
Thank you! I have plenty more to share while on my workout runs and rides
So I suppose running is your form of meditation? Do you think while you run or do you focus on your running only?
Yes, indeed! It varies, and depends on the workout. If I’m running at a face pace on the track I’m strictly thinking about the workout, but if its a slow pace on the pavement I’m using it to clear my thoughts and organize things in my life
Well then that is a nice meditation – both your body and mind are being kept fit. Lol. Alright, so I will look forward to your posts. Goodluck.
I like the statues, it’s quite interesting. Hope you had a good trip.
The trip to Nami Island was wonderful as it was mostly about being close to nature. I did wish we have more time to explore the place but it was only a daytime tour and half a day to scour it was not enough. Hey, welcome back!
Great place in cool photos, Harping. My wife and my youngest daughter loved it very much.
Then your wife and daughter may be queer creatures like me haha. This island is a big hit in my country because many are fond of watching Korean telenovela where they discover places like Jeju, Nami and what-not. I’m not familiar with those but a trip to this place is being closer to nature. I think it would look magnificent in springtime or maybe autumn because of the cherry blossoms.
That is the same reason, telenovela. Beyond that, I am also a natural beauty and a philosophical culture as it feels thick in Japan and Korea.
Yesssss for that alone I envy them. My country is much westernized and the culture has been quite diluted. I love the fact that you can leave stuff and not worry you will not find it again. Altho in the Philippines young people still give their seats to old peeps — not so in Korea
Well, every culture does have its own uniqueness, as well as its advantages and disadvantages, based on its core values.
Well, yes, it does but I am a believer of everything could be changed if the populace are properly educated — maybe I am dreaming haha
Education should be able to improve ethics and etiquette if a system of education is able to (re) find cultural and ethical roots, teach it to themselves so that the compound with the system itself and then forward it to the students in a proper way.
Ahhhh so you are a dreamer as well. In the real world, the powerful few requires obedient workers who don’t ask questions and thus the education system is designed to produce factory worker model. Academies like that of Plato’s will only be a thing of the forgotten past ?
Well, that’s it. I was a VP of the Out-of-School Education Consortium for Self Development under the Ministry of Education in my country, also a consultant of various Education and School Institutions. The challenge for the dream came from various lines. It’s all politics and business, then I’m out.
Of course…a dreamer who has an ideal vision will not survive in the world of “realists” and would always end up walking away so as to keep his/her principle. Sad. Impressive background btw maybe I should start addressing you sir lol. Most of my professional experience, I worked in the background.
I am always happy to talk to anyone, of course with those who are interested, about the vision of the beautiful world and the reality of life. Unfortunately, my vision, our vision, is generally different. ?That is why in everyday life I prefer to be a quiet person. It seems does not appear here, does it? ?
Hahahahaha no, it does not appear like that here. What I see is the Gemini trait of being dialectic lol
Hahaha… It is an interesting feedback and I consider it a luxurious compliment! Thank you!
My rising sun is in Gemini my friend which, according to the crystal ball, accounts for my love of discussing – debating, even – about stuff. Hence I understand that side. All for fun not to cause fight with anyone.
Aha… it turns out I was chatting with a psychic ?r a fortune teller. Very interesting!
Hahaha a fortune teller! Maybe I should learn that art and make a business out of that ???. I wrote an article entitled “Ass-trology” it is about divining the future and character traits by reading the person’s butt. Now that you gave me an idea, perhaps this is the branch of fortune-telling I will explore ???
Your photos are beautiful! Looking forward to next 337 days 🙂
Thank you for checking it out
Wow this is such a cool gallery of photos.
What fun this must be to visit in person!
I am not quite adept in writing blogs using only my mobile phone. So I decided to let the photos do the talking instead.
hello,, wonderful, I liked the statue, reminded me of my little boy who I drank until 1 and 8 months!
Great! I like moms who opt to breastfeed their babies because mother’s milk provide nutrients and anti-bodies that boost the baby’s health and which cannot be sourced from any milk substitute. The statue only illustrates nature.
Looks quite chilly, that statue is HUGE! Fun shots.
It is quite cold in this island, yes, and I would love to see it on autumn because of its cherry blossoms which we don’t have in my country. This is my fave in South Korea so far
