I have just been on holidays for three weeks. One of my few accomplishments has been to select the best photos from my first four and bit months in Korea (with a side trip to Japan).
(I have been having a lot of trouble with WordPress’s photo insertion functions. Among other things, I have not been able to add captions. I know how to, but it won’t let me.) (PS preparing for our trip to Korea in Dec 2022 – Jan 2023, I am attempting to add the captions another way.)
Batch 2 (Jan – Apr 2016) Batch 3 (May – Aug 2016)
I spent four days in Fukuoka Japan getting my visa there because of a delay in processing (https://neverpureandrarelysimple.wordpress.com/2015/08/28/travelling-to-korea-eventually/). This is a Japanese garden near Ohorikoen Park. I thought that all gardens in Japan were Japanese garden. This one is a ‘traditional Japanese garden’.

ACROS building (https://www.acros.or.jp/english/) Fukuoka tower (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukuoka_Tower)Back in Korea. Unless otherwise specified, all buildings are random. Seoul Anglican cathedral (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seoul_Anglican_Cathedral)
I lived in Daejeon. Unless otherwise specified, all locations are random.
Daejeon. A neighbourhood with various murals like this.
Gapcheon bridge and Expo tower, Daejeon. Uam historical park, Daejeon.
Daejeon. Summer turning to autumn. Daejeon.
Daejeon city hall.
For one university function (?official welcome to new staff) we were given a flower each. I didn’t take a photo of it for some time.
Daejeon. The small hill centre right will feature in more photos (https://english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/ATR/SI_EN_3_6.jsp?cid=2865132) and I did hike to the top of the big one.
Indeed, the view from Sky Park at night.
I travelled to Daegu for two days to see a performance which I later found out was also in my university’s auditorium (with zero advertising). Still, it was an opportunity to go. Two days before had been solid rain, the day before had been totally cloudy, and my one day of sightseeing was like: (from Duryu tower) (see next photo)
Duryu tower from Apsan: A temple on Apsan.
Near the temple.
Uam historical park in the snow.
From Daejeon Sky Park. The Korail towers are just visible.
On Jungangno bridge on Christmas eve.
On Christmas day I hiked to Daejeon fortress
The day after Christmas I caught a bus to Incheon airport to meet my wife who was arriving from Australia. As I reached the airport I saw the full moon rising. I investigated the exact rising time the next night and took my tripod out onto the roof of my apartment building. Because there’s a hill to the east, I had to wait in very cold (but fortunately not windy) weather. Fortunately, I got this.
Beautiful images here! I have the same problem with captions on WordPress but thought it was down to my lack of technical knowledge.
Thanks. Don’t take technical problems personally. I am moderately proficient and have a variety of problems with WordPress’s editing tools.
I do take them personally, unfortunately. Outlook is dead to me …
