Cherry Blossoms

Korean Cherry Blossoms of 2016

The Miracle Morning at the Jindo Sea Parting Festival


Late last Friday night a mish-mashed group of new and old friends and I boarded a tour bus and took the red-eye nearly 6 hours South of Seoul to spend a weekend in Jindo: the site of “The Miracle Sea Parting” and the accompanying festival.  The real miracle was that someone was able to wake me up for our 4 AM briefing and departure from the bus.  Once I was up and at ’em, however, I was happy as a clam.  We’ll get to those later!


NaPoWriMo Day 12: Poetry (I, too, dislike it)

A coastal spring day
Couple’s clothes and blossoms both
Share their light pink hue

A four-person bike
Children safe between parents
Only dad pedals

I dunno man I didn't have any juice today. Have a couple haiku.

Korean Cherry Blossoms


Hiroshima Hanami (Cherry Blossoms, because they’re in bloom)

Because there simply aren’t enough cherry blossom photos on Facebook, I wanted to have some of my own. The pictures I have are more special because they’re in MY neighborhood in Japan!

The Best Place for Cherry Blossoms in Korea

Cherry blossom viewing is a big deal every year in Korea. Rightfully so, considering the country is full of cherry blossom lined streets, and they are all amazingly beautiful. Every year droves of people visit famous places like Yeouido in Seoul, Jinhae, and Gyeongju to catch a glimpse at just the right time. People battle crowds, inclement weather, and time at the cherry blossom festivals. While it can still be a great time, they haven’t been my favorite Spring experiences.

Vlog Entry #14: One Blawesome Weekend

It’s cherry blossom season here in South Korea, which means roads throughout the country are lined with beautiful flowering trees! The conditions are perfect for a Saturday morning bike ride, and the small naval port town of Jinhae welcomes thousands who flock its streets to take in the views at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival! Enjoy!

10 Things In Korea That I’ll Never, Ever Do

by Mr. Motgol

I wrote this  piece a few years back, and while a few things have changed since then, most have not. As it is currently boshingtang eating season, not to mention Mudfest time, I thought that a re-post may be apropos. I’ve made a few small revisions. Enjoy. And don’t take it too seriously.

I like living in Korea. I’ve been here for almost ten years now, so if I hated it, I would have split a long time ago. I like hiking, I like the food, I like riding my motorcycle, checking out the street markets, and drinking my ass off. It’s a crowded crazy little place and I’ve grown to love it, for better or for worse. Plus, the girls are bangin’ hot. I should know: I married one.
