[TRAVEL] JINHAE CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL

Over spring break the boys and I made the trek to Jinhae, a town in the South Gyeongsan province, for the 51st Annual Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival. Every April millions of people flock to Jinhae to enjoy the country's largest cherry blossom festival. With over 370,000 cherry blossom trees scatterered throughout the town, it is quite picturesque. The festival site is near a small creek with two mini bridges under a canopy of cherry blossom trees. I have never seen so many cameras, tripods, and couples taking photographs. Of course besides the scenic view, one of my favorite things were all the food carts and vendors selling delicious Korean treats. The festival is held in conjunction with the annual commemoration of Admiral Yi Sun-shin, Korea's beloved Naval hero. I have to say one of my favorite things about living in Korea is seeing my boys' interest and widening knowledge of Korean culture and history. I am looking forward to exploring more of Korea this year, as there is still so much to see.

And of course no outing would be complete without some Instagram action.
