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.

That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. Let’s see if I can make it to the end of ten days, but for now I nominate Anita

The Bridge

The Word/Photo Challenge: The Bridge

“If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he’s dead, then maybe he was a great man.” – James Dean
