A Ferry to the Oryukdo Islands


Korean Folklore

We first spotted the Oryukdo Islands toward the end of our hike down the coast of Igidae Park. A string of rocky and uninhabited landmasses, these islands are the most notable feature along Busan’s coastline. In order to get a better look, we took an evening ferry trip which looped around them.


Samgwangsa Under a Blanket of Lanterns


Learn Korean

Set at the foot of the Baegyangsan Mountain in central Busan, Samgwangsa is a massive temple which can accommodate 10,000 worshipers. And there were approximately that many present when we visited on a balmy May evening shortly before Buddha’s birthday.


Busan Food Journal, Part Three


Korean Ramen

Dumplings, soju, grilled ribs, stews, chicken and lots of kimchi were on the table this week. We’re starting to get the hang of Korean food, and discovering what we love, and some things we don’t. Last week, we concentrated on restaurants around our neighborhood, Suyeong and Gwangalli Beach, but these dishes can be found on just about every corner of Busan.


Gwangalli Beach


Cheap Flights To Korea

Crescent-shaped Gwangalli Beach is one of the most popular hangouts in Busan, offering fine sand, good swimming, and an exorbitant number of cafés, restaurants and bars. We’re lucky enough to call it home for the next three months and have already spent a lot of time on the its entertaining promenade.


Creative juices flowin…

I’ve been in Korea a few months over two years now.  I have tried various hobbies and things to keep myself busy. If you know me personally, you know that I am a very active person. I have tried many new things that I have enjoyed, but haven’t stuck with too many of them. Mostly for convience sake.

Fortunately, I have been able to stay with blogging and have increased my latest creative outlet: making videos. I love to be creative, but don’t play an instrument, and frankly don’t have a desire to learn one either. Making videos has proven to be an exciting way to release my creative juices and, most recently, has become an avenue for practicing my Korean skills.


Suwon's Hwaseong fortress - or - take that, Robert Koehler!

Robert Koehler inspires me. His recently-started travelog features some gorgeous photos of some well-known Korean destinations give me something to work toward. Definitely a source of travel ideas if you're looking for some more places to check out. Oh, and the Marmot's Hole has me beat on Alexa's web-ranking service (one of the only K-blogs that I've seen in the top 50,000)

Although my evening was cut short by a malfunctioning camera, I was able to get a few shots of Hwaseong Fortress at night. Since I've already covered the area, it's time to stop typing and start enjoying the photos:
