“In the cherry blossoms shade there is no such thing as a stranger”

I could talk forever on how AMAZING my weekend in Gyeonju was. It is a city rich in culture and history. It beautiful, it is charming, it is delightful. I developed a crush on the quaint, cherry blossom lined streets by day and fell head over heels with its spectacular lake and temples by night.

I got to ride a beach cruiser up and down pathways, roads and through fields. The sun was shining, the weather was sweet. We frolicked in the cherry blossoms, took too many photos than I ever thought possible and tasted the traditional Korean delicacy that is Sambap. We got a glimpse of a 2,000 year old Buddha, an ancient temple marked as a UNESCO world heritage site AND a a panoramic view of the tombs of Korea’s kings from times past.

Need I say more? Take a look at these snaps and you’ll see what started my new found love affair..with a city. The pics are “A day in the life” starting in the morning and finishing with night shots.

Walking is sunshine..Ohhhh
Up close and beautiful
