Thumbs Up For South Korea...



Apologies for the lack of posts in recent days. Once again the health took a slight downturn over the weekend. My first year as a thirtysomething has been a slight downer so far I can tell you!

But enough about that, for the next couple of weeks or so I am going to post some of the finest statues to be found in South Korea, with, of course, people standing by them. These fantastic shots come courtesy of Mr SwissToni, who earlier this year travelled to South Korea along with girlfriend and family to witness the wedding of his elder brother. More details on what sounded like quite an eyeopener of a trip can be found here.

So, essentially, this is the story of a family standing by statues in the mysterious Far East. Bravo! I don’t know that much about South Korea to be honest, so along the way I shall attempt to learn and pass on a bit of knowledge about the country...

One of the highlights in terms of statues has to be this massive thumb, which I believe is found in Seoul. And what an inspirational statue it is too…it gets the big thumbs up from me! Ahem.

the thumb is in no less a location than Seoul Olympic Park, mate. A place of manifold statuage.
