3 Things I Like About Busan

I’ve been staying in  South Korea for 9 months now. My family and I moved here last April 2015, and we stayed at my in-laws’ place in Uiryeong (a province near Busan) for 3 months. We moved to Munhyeon-dong, Busan last July 2015, and I am so happy to be here. Today let me share with you the things that I like about living in Busan.

The first thing that I like about Busan is my job. Believe it or not, I am an English teacher. I know my English is not that good enough for some people because I am a Filipino, but hey I got a job! And I’m loving it! I have had my share of ups and downs when it comes to job hunting, but I’m glad that I survived. Teaching English in Busan is an awesome experience. I have kind and generous employers (yes, I’ve got a couple of employers since I work as a part-time teacher), nice students (well, some can be a bit unruly at times), and a great pay! Woohoo!!!


The Universe


It's almost as though Amy Schumer, Bill Nye, and the lovely gals from Broad City got together to write a sketch for me this past weekend.  Just as I had written about missing the comforts of home, "the universe" decided to send me some things I'd been missing.

Baseball, Sand and the Black Eagles

Daegu Stadium

On Saturday David and I went to a baseball game in Daegu with all of the other teacher’s at CEV. The Samsung Lions were playing Doosan Bears. It was a good game. The atmosphere was fantastic. There were cheerleaders, both men and women, cute mascots and everything was incredibly cheap. The tickets cost 8,000 won and you can take your own food and drink into the stadium. Even if you wanted to buy refreshments inside, it is all reasonably priced.


Busan 25KM Ocean Walk

Busan Segal Walk

On the weekend David and I decided to walk one of the seagull trails in Busan. We headed to Busan on Friday night and stayed near Songdo beach. The next day we woke up early and started our 25km hike. Most of the trail was flat and it was located along the coast so it was pretty and relaxing. We started the hike near Songdo beach and ended it six hours later in Taejongdae. In Taejongdae there was a tourist park and here we took a Danubi shuttle train (costing 1,500 won) to sight see the local sights.


Back to Busan!


Our Weekend: Freezing For A Reason

Friday saw the end of Winter camp and the start of a four day weekend, which is always welcome. And this weekend was particularly packed with friends and fun things to do.

On Saturday Nick and I headed to the beach early to take part in the Freezin' For A Reason January dip in the ocean for charity. I was umming and aarring about whether to do it or not, and at the last minute decided that I couldn't let Nick do it on his own. I won't be doing that again in too much of a hurry.
Before the dip. Shall I? Shan't I?

Get Your "Dairy" Aire in Shape For Summer!

The weather is crazy here in Korea. I'm still waiting to hit the beach in my new HIGH WAISTED bikini! But those of you in the rest of the Northern hemisphere are well in to summer.
