A First-Time Traveler’s Guide To Seoul

“You do not travel if you are afraid of the unknown, you travel for the unknown, that reveals you with yourself.” – Ella Maillart

Our 4th Chuseok in Korea, Part 2 – Busan & Yangsan

This is the 2nd part of our Aunt Kathy’s trip to Korea! You can read about the first part of the trip in Seoul here. Now on to Busan! I was really excited about the train ride from Seoul to Yangsan, because after years I’m still not tired of Korea’s beautiful mountains and countryside. It ended up not being as clear as it could have been but it was still a nice ride! As Seoul faded from our minds, we started focusing on the next couple days in Busan.

Re: 36 Hours in Seoul

I love the New York Times' "36 Hours in [city]" series - it's informative, interesting, and gives someone unfamiliar with the area a general idea about what to see or do. With their recent article about Seoul, I found myself agreeing with a couple parts - and disagreeing with others. My only criticism is that their itineraries are... well, trendy is one good word to use, but high-brow also comes to mind. Maybe you have plenty of money just laying around when you travel, but I don't. That's why I take public transportation, pass on expensive hotels or food, and enjoy what the locals do. It's also a little nitpicky, but Friday at 4pm to starting something on Sunday at 12:30pm is a bit more than 36 hours.
