One day in Seoul

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Spruiker

On day walking around the less touristy places in Seoul, we headed down a street where a lot of people were going so we tagged along. It wasn’t long before we came across this huge shopping centre. Outside was a spruiker trying to get people inside and to the particular store he was advertising.

He was quite comical and whatever he said to the passing shoppers made them smile or laugh.

I didn’t realise that this was an Australian word. It is often more likely to be used in carnivals where they try and get you to go into their particular tent or sideshow. Sometimes these shows are not exactly what the spruiker shouts to the crowd.

Anyway back to South Korea

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Antimacassar

I was thinking about this prompt wondering if I could contribute. Then I started to read others contributions and I remembered my first overseas holiday to Europe in 2009. I flew with Korean Air, which had great service and polite and friendly flight attendants. Part of the trip was over night in Seoul in a really good hotel.

We were picked up from the airport and transported to the hotel in a bus and what a bus it was. I won’t describe it and let the photo tell the story.

Let’s go over there

The Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #140: A Change of Scenery

As we are travelling a bit, let’s take some music with us. This is an Aussie band called Fraternity. You may recognised the singer playing the recorder. It’s Bon Scott, the lead singer of ACDC when they first started out, before his time in ACDC.

World in a Sphere

The inspirational quotation from Debbie at Travel With Intent

“My favourite thing is to go where I’ve never been.”   Diane Arbus

Travel the world
in a sphere
slowly spin
dropping down
again ascend
terrifyingly tall
startlingly small
wondrous world
playful planet
seeing sights
hearing harmony
holding tight
travel the world
in a sphere
