This week begins a new fun photo series in store for Fridays. The best part is anyone can submit!
The aim is to share unique things that would only happen in a certain country or region. Some might be funny, while others serious – the point being to share eccentricities and contrasts about the world around us.
So, for the first edition I’ve chosen one of my favorite shots I snapped during class.
When this student came into class as I was bundled up in my down coat and scarf, not excited about the Korean winter, I nodded and thought “damn right it is kid.”
Only in Korea (and Asia in general) would a child come to school wearing such a sentence on their jacket. With most Koreans having a low level of English, many of these t-shirts and jackets go unnoticed by the population (and parents!).
It sure is entertaining for the rest of us.
Have a good #OnlyIn photo? Send it my way!
You can submit any photo, from any place, which you think goes well with this theme. It doesn’t have to be for a country, but could fit for a region. For example: “Only in the Midwest” or “Only in Eastern Europe”. I’ll pick the best one to be featured here on Fridays.
Show us what’s unique, special or funny about where you are. Be creative. Don’t be offensive.
How to submit:
- Email me at CuriosityTravels@gmail.com with the file attached, or a link to the photo. Please also include a brief description.
- You can also tweet your photo to me using @Curiosity_Trvls and #OnlyIn
