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.😁😁
