Wallpaper Wanderer – White Water Rafting in Inje-gun

In Wallpaper Wanderer by Jaclynn Seah0 Comments

Oh my, it’s been more than a month since the last Wallpaper Wanderer where we saw the lovely Israeli sunset by Brooke the Fugue Traveler… ack! Let’s just say March was insane and in April I got lazy, and hopefully as May approaches (seriously, where is all that time going) I will pick up the slack a little bit.

I did do a map design course on Skillshare back in March, and this was one of the maps highlighted by teacher Anne, which turned out to be a fellow Singaporean, woot! (we are a very small country, and very fond of being recognized as #1). Trixia here blogs over at green sea blue, but do check out her map page here. I love her ant trail map in particular!

Serene mountains and a deceptively calm looking river bend


Inje-gun, South Korea

A few years back, I went white water rafting for the first time, down this river. The water was icy and the route took us through the mountains, with trees looming on either side – it was so beautiful. This photograph inspires me to plan a trip to a place where I can be surrounded by mountains again and makes me want to revisit South Korea, of course!

This is really picturesque and I can see why it would inspire Trixia to want to go back to South Korea again! I hope her white water rafting experience was better than mine was in Ruisui, Taiwan, where it was not only hot, the river was as still as a lake and that was a rather painful experience!
