WPC:Change

To be honest, I hadn’t a clue of what I should post for this photo challenge. I’m in the midst of compiling our month long Korean trip. Nothing really seemed to click. So, I’ve come to rely on our experiences with travel.

I’ve never been a brave person. I’d be the last person, who’d want to meet new people or seek the unfamiliar. I’m better with flat ground and a language that I can understand. Clearly, I’m no intrepid traveller. And yet, over the years, something has changed. Travel can do that. And I’m not talking about perspectives or a point of view.

A Walk through Insa-dong

Being in a unfamiliar country with strangers, can be both – terrifying as well as liberating. In a way, it’s the best way, to overcome fear.

Taejongdae National Park – Busan

I’d never thought I’d enjoy hiking.

Street Food in Busan

Use traveller-sign to communicate and eat anything when hungry. OK, almost anything.

Maybe, I’m rambling. But, the truth is that travel is that magic potion, to help you deal with all that you can’t control in your life.

And on the other side – nothing matters. Except, the will to survive and a need for change.

  1. Love all these photos. They are each so different, yet radiate the beauty that is this world – mankind and nature side by side. Meeting strangers can certainly be scary especially while traveling – you don’t know what their intentions are. Then again, sometimes you do come across the nicest and kindest people. Hope you had a good trip and looking forward to reading about it 🙂

  2. Thanks Mabel! Had to literally remind Basil to click pictures in this trip. We have been extremely fortunate to meet some amazing people – on every trip. People who went out of their way to show us a place that we’d needed to get to. Even help us fill gas in our rental car. So much so, I rarely remember the ones who’ve acted indifferent. 🙂 We love escaping to places with green trees and parks. We were pleasantly surprised to see that Seoul had a heady mix of both. Thanks for stopping by. Have a good week!

    • Off-late I’m getting nostalgic. Never really thought I’d travel or explore the world. My folks are pretty surprised (proud) that their timid, youngest child has become quite a traveller. 🙂
