Snowy Road

Namwon, South Korea

This is my very first time to participate any weekly photo challenge in my entire blogging journey. One of my co-blogger Thoughts of Sheryl (THANKS, T 😘) had been a participant of this photo challenge and as an avid reader of her blog, I saw several of her snapshots telling her stories about it. Curiosity kills the cat as they said that led me to asked her in which she generously disclosed the details. I found it very interesting knowing that I love photography BIG TIME!

This week’s photo challenge is “The Road Taken”

n Korea, you have to undergo three different exams to be able to drive on public roads. As you remember on my previous post-Chezruru (Ruru’s Home), I mentioned there passing my first written examination and so I can finally enroll myself in an academy, so I did. After my grueling 4 hours of practical and driving education with my Korean teacher, I took the test and luckily I did it again! I thought I was going to fail at that time because, during the practice, everything was so foreign. They don’t speak English and all the commands are in Hangeul and so I have to digest every Korean driving vocabularies in a short period of time. I studied Korean, but I haven’t heard any driving words at that time yet. 😭😭😭

 My husband surprised me with a congratulatory road trip to Namwon. The southern part of Korea where I’m residing doesn’t get any much snow during the winter and so, he knows exactly how I longed for it. He drove me all the way to Namwon (North Jeolla Province) so I can see and enjoy its beauty. When we visited there, the town was filled with snow and everything we saw was white traces of snowfalls from the previous day.😁😁

  1. What you have seen is the best kind of snow – the kind you go and visit, then turn the car around and go back to where it is warm and the sun shines. Here in South Australia it is fairly easy to get a license to drive. Learning the Official Rules of the Road, passing a written test, then a practical test and you have a provisional license for a year, then a full license. We live in what is called, the Arid Lands, it is warm to hot and it never snows. I am from Scotland and sometimes I too miss the snow – but only when it gets too hot here :o) Lovely photographs.

    1. Thank you. Oh, that’s cool. In Korea, it’s very difficult for foreigners to understand their command since they will never adjust for you. They even scold and shout at you if you ever commit few mistakes. Unlike my country Philippines, we use English so driving would be easier to learn. 🙂

    1. I love snow but they rarely come in my city. Very tough indeed and Koreans are impatient so you I was scolded multiple times if I can’t understand their commands. Kkkk

  2. Congratulations. Driving is a kind of freedom. I know what it’s like to miss snow. I live in southern California after many years in the snow Midwestern US. I don’t miss clearing snow from the sidewalk and the car. Thank you for visiting Under Western Skies.
