I was surprised to find out that cherry blossoms do not last that long, they only stay on the trees for about 2 weeks, maybe less. So it's a must to go out and see them as soon as you can.

Cherry blossoms along the road in Jinhae
I did find out though that cherry blossoms are not native to Korea, they are all imported from Japan. This explains the neat rows of trees along the roads I guess.
On a side note, we spent the night in Masan, near Jinahe, and I had read on a blog that there was a Subway at another nearby town, Changwon, so we went on a hunt for it. Unfortunately, it wasn't a Subway anymore, it was a Lion Sub 2009, which still had the reminiscent smell and look of a Subway...damn you old blog! Nonetheless, I had a good veggie sandwich hehehe.
we KNOW there used to be a subway not that long ago cuz they still have a sign for it!

my attempt to get a shot of us riding the bikes lol
The Seochulji Pond
By the way, it was a trip riding those bicycles because I hadn't ridden one in a while haha. I first had to get comfortable riding it, and then I had to dodge all the people walking around and the other people on bikes. It was totally worth it though!
And lastly, there is Pohang of course! We also have cherry blossoms, but same as in Jinhae, they are the ones planted along the streets. They do brighten up the city and give off that spring feeling ^^.
