Gyeongju Summer Trip (Part 1)
Finally, the day we took the train (this one is Saemaueul train) taking us to Gyeongju had arrived. We boarded the train in the morning at 9.40 that would take us to Dongdaegu station before we transfer to Mugunghwa train (a local train) taking us to Gyeongju.
It's the air-conditioned coach that lullaby-ed them to sleep. Well..it's a 3-hour trip and after tiring themselves with snacks and sight-seeing..it's time for them to 'sleep'.
As for me, what would a trip be without letting my fingers and camera do the job of capturing the blurring images of the scenery along the way.
Summer, yup...we went on a holiday summer to Gyeongju..which to my friends' surprise..they asked me as to why we went there....since that's one of the hottest place in Korea to be..during summer.
But...I did not see that coming really. So..let's just enjoy the moment..and for the time being...seeing the 'outside' world through the train window inside the air-conditioned coach somewhat 'blinded' me of what's coming ahead...^^
Even..the place underneath this KTX-railway seemed a cool thing to capture into my camera.
And..along with the vast green rice field.....the vinyl-housed farms....the mountains...all of them seemed to be so tenderly cool...in summer.
Once again...it's all because ..everything was seen and enjoyed through the windows of the train we boarded to Gyeongju.
Creeks...small paths...bushes....hilly villages...houses that looked like dots on the slopes of the mountains...
were all...once again...cool to look at even in the 'Korean' summer.
*once again..thanks to the comfort of train window that separated us from the direct 'impact' of heat in the summer.:)
