Around the World in Ten Photos (8)

Seoul in South Korea was our destination yesterday. We were here during Chuseok, a celebration that was once harvest thanksgiving, and is now a family celebration rather like Thanksgiving in America. Hence the young woman in hanbok: traditional dress. We were at one of the five major palaces in Seoul: Gyeongbokgung – a royal palace with – as is so often the case in Korea, a tranquil water garden.

Today, you won’t have a clue. Even guessing the continent would be a triumph. But it’s Monday Window time, and I love this shot. So there you go.

Andrew of Have Bag, Will Travel invited me to join him and other bloggers to post one favourite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then each day, nominate someone new to join in on the same terms. It’s too near Christmas to name someone specific. I’m just saying to all of you – if you’d like to join in, please do. It’s quite good fun, and all I ask you to do is link back to this post so I know that you’ve posted a photo.

  1. Seoul – I knew it … another place I haven’t visited. Seems I’m on quite the streak. On to the next stop – hmmmm …. first all, brilliant capture. Definitely European – but the question is where. That type of architecture appears in other places, so the clouds and the vegetation also provide hints.

      1. She’s fine, but really fed up that we can’t go there. As we are. New rules mean nobody but parents can see a new baby for 20 days … Try telling that to the other granny!
