Top 10 Travel Photos of 2014 #9

2014 was my most traveled year yet.  I had the good fortune to bring in the New Year in the Philippines before returning to my job in South Korea.  Summer vacation was spent backpacking Vietnam and Chuseok (Korean thanksgiving) brought me to Japan.  I ventured to Shanghai before heading back to America for the end of the year holidays and all along these crazy adventures my camera followed me.  Tens of thousands of pictures were narrowed down to roughly 30 finalists before I selected my top 10 travel photos of 2014!

#9 comes to you from the top of Namsan Tower in the heart of Seoul, South Korea.  I had the good fortune of visiting this tower with my students on a field trip touring famous sites around Seoul.

Really good photo. It feels medieval. Is that a mulberry tree or some sort of viburnum. Uncle Edwin

Thanks Edwin! I’m not sure what kind of tree it is but their outfits are definitely pre-modern. A lot of the cultural sites have guides/guards dressed in traditional outfits.

I’d really crop a good part of that tree. It takes up half the frame and contains little information. The castle and figures are the interesting thing.
