South Korea. May's Virtual Paint Out

This month our Virtual Paint Out Group traveled to South Korea.

South Korea is a beautiful country located in the southern half of the Korean Peninsula. Occupying about 38,000 sq mi, it is slightly smaller than Kentucky and home to about 51 million people. The peninsula is also surrounded by almost 3,000 volcanic islands.

The climate is temperate, with heavy rainfall in the summer, pleasant spring and fall temperatures and cold winters. The terrain is a mixture of forested hills, stunning rocky mountains, lush coastal plains and some tropical jungles. There are 21 National Parks in South Korea, but the only areas of true wilderness are the mountainous forests.

The country is split into North and South Korea and shares one of the world’s most heavily militarized borders, but in the minds of most of its citizens, it remains a single nation that cannot be divided. Over the past four decades, South Korea has achieved incredible economic growth and global integration to become a high-tech industrialized economy. North Korea, closed to Google Maps, remains a mystery.
