Jinhae Cherry Blossoms
What feels like a million years ago, I was just getting out of surgery and spring had sprung. Since then I've been busy figuring out the next chapter of my life and wrapping up my time in Korea. Time has definitely slipped away from me these last few months, but here is my last effort to catch up on my time spent here.
Not too long after my first post-ear-chopping adventure, cherry blossom season was in full effect. Cherry Blossom season, however, is more of a two week period as opposed to an actual season. These trees lined many streets and parks in our area, which made walking outdoors gorgeous (even when I was walking back and forth to the hospital).
This beautiful spring season also coincided with my ability to drink again (cue the boozy bus brunch mimosa party!) Several of us headed to Jinhae for their Cherry Blossom festival.
Like all Korean festivals, there were plenty of food stalls, trinket pop-up shops, and this wonderful addition...Hanbok photo tent! Ayesha and I managed to convince the rest of the group to abandon their pride and throw on some fab outfits!
Walking down, what we thought were abandoned, train tracks we snapped plenty more photos of these beautiful trees until we heard the engine behind us. For real Korea? I know there's no third rail, but you just let people play on active train tracks?
