Nice travel spot. Runaway Juno recommend it for runaway place. Jindo was one of the best place i trveled in Korea. It still remain as they were. When you come Korea, consider put Jindo in your itinerary. Worth it!

    Lovely photos, Juno! And very interesting because it doesn’t happen very often to see pics of your country.

    beautiful sunsets! sadly, i’ve only been to Korea’s airport as a connection to Manila from Toronto via Korean Air. But not to the city or countryside. Someday….

      @Jen Lacede

    Hi Juno,

    It’s been a while since i was last in South Korea but I had a great time. I lived in Japan for 5 years so it was not a far ride over (I preferred the ferry to Pusan over flying). An offer of a local guide! will definitely take you up on it. If you ever find yourself in Kosovo let me extend the same offer πŸ™‚

    • Juno says:

      @Todd

      Lived 5 years in Japan? wow. so you are very familiar with asian culture then. πŸ™‚ did you experience ‘express ferry’ to Busan? It was CRAZY!!!! i though the ferry’s gonna broke. tooooooo fast! I actually wrote about that in my Japan article in my blog. hahaha

      Anyhow, yes if i come over, count on your extended offer!! πŸ™‚ Thanks!

      Juno.
