Yongyeon Pond (용연)

Yongyeon (Jeju Island, South Korea)

#Jeju #제주 #용연

This place on Jeju Island is supposed to be most beautiful (and crowded) at night, but I was there alone in the day. This is where the fresh water at the end of a mountain valley meets the salty sea water on the north side of Jeju. The name means “Dragon Pond” as the dragon in the nearby rock is said to have come to this pond to play. I don’t remember if I strolled on over to the pavilion.

What’s the largest castle in the world?

Prague Castle

According to Guinness the largest is Prague Castle, pictured above. Malbork Castle is actually larger, but Guinness has some reason, I suppose, for not counting it.

Turning corners in Yosemite

Surprises around every corner in Yosemite

I believe today’s photo comes from the Mist Trail, which takes you not to Yosemite Falls (pictured here) but to Vernal Falls.

Thermal Falls

View from hike to Reykjadalur Hot Spring Thermal River (Iceland)

Today’s photo comes from my hike to the Reykjadalur Hot Spring Geothermal River, certainly the most amazing bath I’ve ever taken.

Anyone familiar with the northwestern fjords of Iceland? Any similar bathing places in that region?

I covered Reykjavik on my first trip, most things between Reykjavik and Blue Diamond Beach and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on my second, and will be exploring the area north of Reykjavik on my third (in just over two months).

Boating into Nyhavn

Just outside Nyhavn

Today’s photo comes from Copenhagen’s main canal almost three years ago. The bridge on the left (Inderhavnsbro) had its grand opening less than a month before. I went over that bridge dozens of times last summer, as my apartment was nearby. Unfortunately, this year, my abode will be as far away from this part of town as it has ever been so my Nyhavn visits will drop dramatically.
