Songjeong Beach

The Summer is HERE…Camping Trips!!!

The weekend of the 10th and the long weekend of the 16th (Buddha’s birthday) David and I went camping in Namhae Island. Yipppeeeeeeeeeeee the summer is officially here! The first weekend was a tester. We wanted to make sure that the tent was still in good shape after being packed away over the winter. Overall both weekends were very successful.

We spent both weekends camping on Songjeong Beach. We chose this beach because it is one of the most beautiful beaches we have seen in Korea and it is free to camp, plus you can park your car right next to your tent. Whereas on Sangju beach you can’t. We explored a lot of the island over the two weekends.

Swimming with Shirts: Songjeong Revealed

With the Boryeong Mud Fest quickly approaching, I’m on the hunt for a bathing suit here in Busan.  I’ve spotted a couple shops that sell them in the Seomyeon underground mall, though a recent jaunt to Songjeong Beach revealed that the Korean girls don’t usually, well, reveal much.



Neither do the guys!  (Except for that one exhibitionist on the left.) 

This group did, however, spend the bulk of their beach time sneaking up on each other in boisterous raids, grabbing wrists and ankles, and tossing the fully-clothed target into the sea. One of the most entertaining people-watching sessions I’ve experienced here so far.
