A little bit about the picture and the kind of simple lifestyle I believe in.

This Hallabong, or Mineola orange tree was taken at the place I stayed when I visited one of the most beautiful island in the world, Jeju.  The resort/hotel or more like a minshuku I stayed in Jeju is located right by the Hallasan in Seogwipo.  There is a garden at the back with trees of Camellia, Cherry blossom and Hallabong right by their many traditional Korean earthenware.

Each morning you are blessed with a fresh breath of Hallasan, a scent of the Spring flowers and Hallabongs, and their homemade Kimchi.

And now a little bit about this Toronto based lifestyle blogger who took this picture.
