My Backyard

Took these photos right behind my home in South Korea. The rice fields are beginning to turn green!

Lantern Festival in Seoul

This was last weekend, 5/16/15. People came out in droves to celebrate Buddha’s birthday. I am admiring the culture, NOT the religion.

Everland, South Korea

The family and I went to Everland for the first time this week. Everland is a bit like 6 Flags back in the states, complete with a water-park and a zoo! It just happens to be their tulip festival right now, so if for nothing else, you must go just to see the beautiful blooms!

There is also a really neat “safari” ride, where you take a bus (ride in a SUV for an extra charge and spend more up close time than you ever thought possible) through the animal’s exhibit. It’s a quick ride, but I tell you, it’s a pretty amazing and thrilling experience! I’ve never been so close!

Something else the whole family enjoyed was the aviary where, for a dollar, you can feed the birds right out of your hand!

There’s a wide range a food available, including nostalgic American food, burgers and a KFC!

Everland is in Yongin and is only about an hour away from Camp Humphreys.

Silleuksa Temple, South Korea

Did a little temple admiring in Yeoju last weekend! The Buddhist temple, Silleuksa, overlooks the Han River which runs from Mt. Bongmi to the Yeo River. According to Visit Korea, Silleuksa was probably built by Monk Wonhyo during the reign of King Jinpyeong in the Silla Period.
