Suncheon Garden Expo

Standard

Almost a month ago already I took a little field trip with my students to the Suncheon Garden Expo. Korea has TONS of festivals in the Spring/Summer amd Tom and I haven’t been as good as we would like about visiting the festivals- we have been so busy exploring that we forget to check the event calendar. So, when I found out I was going with my school I was pumped! It counts as a festival, right?! I wish I could have updated earlier, but better late than never! Suncheon is a city about 40 min away from where we live in Yeosu. We have been there quite a few times for bus connections en route to other destinations, but haven’t explored it yet! It was a quick hop, skip, and jump away from my school, and it was fun to explore the Expo! We had a cloudy day about 70 degrees outside. Perfect day to spend outside. The expo runs until October. It would be fun to go back with Tom to explore, but we haven’t decided yet! SO much to see and do still.

To sum it all up the festival basically is little gardens that represent different parts of the world.

About Elicia Shepard

I'm unique just like you. I've learned every person has a story which makes us who we are. One minute I am here..then I am gone. Discovering unknown places and people is an addiction I am proud of and will be an endless journey of mine. Smiling is not a pastime it's what I do. I live for moments that take my breath away. Falling in love is the greatest feeling-and the biggest risk. I thrive off of risks.Challenges. Adrenaline rushes. Making others smile. Art is all around and in ourselves. I love taking an unknown path not knowing where it'll lead. Mystery is beautiful. Compassion, kindness, and love- things I will always strive for. Know what you believe in. Stand up for it. Never be afraid to feel. Time waits for no one.Ever. Children inspire me. God fires me. Happiness is being with those you love.I am really blessed. I think God is love and forgiveness and I think he wants us to be good people and love EVERYONE. Figure out who you are and what that means to you-It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself (and you deserve it.) Live frugally on surprise. Breathe. Be who you are. Be an outcast...If you wanna find me I will be where the wind blows...Wherever that may take me.
