[Gapyeong] ~ Garden That’s Beyond Green

For it was a quick yet memorable favorite time of day spent at a garden of gardens. – 10.24.14

 Due to an hour delay at the bus stop from Petite France, had only roughly an hour at this last stop. Immediately awed by the colors around and how landscape was well thought of while maintaining its feel of natural. All this beauty surrounded by those mountains which I am no usually fan of except when it is that colorful.

Also the same spot but different lens

(I was switching between my camera and my phone so forgive the changes in color)

Also a touristy spot yet surprisingly still indeed of calm

~~~

Place is actually a collection of gardens and at the entrance, one could score a map. I am no fan of maps, unless very necessary and due to limited time, I just did my late afternoon stroll and did not take time to understand each unique garden. If one has more time though and especially if a fascinated with flora, this place is sure to be really extra exciting. Nonetheless sharing photos of scenes which I found lovely.

I am not a sucker for mountains. But not like when it’s this colorful

I would live in that house.

Just one of many selfies when I realized I had to take a photo of I with what was behind me

This intrigued me whether natural or man-made

Hop hop.

And again some yellow. Reminded me of those in Nami Island

IMG_8904

Was that some fire?

~~~

And just like that it was about to get dark 😦

~~~

And I was sad because I was then forced to go back to the bus stop. Grabbed myself some barbecue because I was half-starving and half-craving. It was a short line and a relatively short wait at the stop. Still, it was dark when I reached the terminal. (Side story too that a Filipino family was with me at the stop until the train station. I wasn’t a very friendly traveler though so I did not start a chat with them.)

Back to where I was earlier that day

With that man’s get-up, I was reminded that it was a chilly night I even got coffee from a vendo machine.

(I remember the machine eating up my change. Oh the things we remember from the most random visual cues)

~~~

IMG_8913

Seemingly deserted

IMG_8915

I think these are fellow Filipinos

Was standing up with these strangers during the entire trip

How to get there: 

I went to this garden as part of this unique do-it-yourself Gapyeong City Tour, details of which I posted in the last section of my entry about my first stop which was Nami Island .

Also made a quick review of it in TripAdvisor : Feast your eyes ON nature’s colors. (Yes, I had to correct the title as I am OC like that :D)
