JP gets around... South Korea

The Journal Pioneer was taken on a journey to Gwangju, South Korea, recently, when Islanders, Georgina and Roger (Harold) Blanchard went on a two-week trip to the Asian country. Gwangju is the sixth largest city in South Korea. One day, while touring in a village, Georgina rented this traditional South Korean outfit for a day. The pair say it was an amazing trip and were impressed by the strides the region has made in modernization. “They’re way ahead of us,” they noted.

Planning to travel to an exotic destination? Take along the Journal Pioneer and send us a photo of you reading the paper there, or have it cleverly placed somewhere in the photo.

The photo should show people with beautiful scenery or a famous landmark, rather than a sign or hotel wall, in the background. Send the photos via email to darlene.shea@journalpioneer.com and include names of the people in the photo and the community where they live.
