Autumn in Korea – 한국 가을 2018

This is the first time for me to meet the Korean Autumn. Eventhough I already read on the Internet or saw on TV that this is a wonderful time here, I still can’t help but fall in love with it 😍.

The weather is not hot anymore, rather cool. You can feel the autumn breeze and also see it taking all the colorful leaves with it. Day by day  you can see the color of your surrounding is changing – on the streets, in the parks or on the mountains. From green to yellow, to orange then red… Then maybe you only see a naked tree left, without any leaf.

Everyday is more beautiful than the previous day…

I went around, enjoying this fabulous scenery and try to capture it with all devices I have. But I only feel helpless, because the reality is much more lively, much more colorful, much more fantastic… No word, no picture can describe the beauty of the autumn in Korea. You have to come, to see and breath it by yourself.

Well, despite that fact, I still would love to share some pictures of my autumn collection with you to give you more motivation to come to Korea in autumn ☺️.

All of them were taken between end of September and end of October 2018. The whole collection as well as the locations I’ve been to can be found here.

My Tempelstay at 낙산사 (Naksansa) [Gangwon]

Remember back in May, when I first arrived in Korea, I was really amazed by the Latern festival to celebrate Buddha’s Birthday. I didn’t know that Buddhism was that common here. Well, the information online said that Buddism already came to the Korean peninsula (at that time in Goguryeo-Kingdom) from China in the 4th Century AD. It spread out through other Kingdoms and shaped it own form. Today, about 15% Korean still believe and practice Buddha’s teaching. That’s why you can still find and visit a lot of Buddhistish temples, statues, arts and events in Korea.

While visiting the Jogyesa in Seoul, I ran into a sign advertising for “Templestay” program. Because of my curiosity about the Korean Buddism, I’ve booked a two-night-three-day stay at the Naksan-Temple, to be able to experience more and also relax.
