Hwaseong Again

Sweet Weekend Weather: The Beach and Gamcheon Village

Hey everyone! This weekend I hit the beach again! The weather is just too nice to stay inside or not listen to the waves while catching some rays. I also visited, and wandered around, Gamcheon Culture Village, which is a shamble of very colorful houses and steep narrow winding roads. It was pretty fun! Here are the photos:

Finding Haenggung Road

The traffic on the way in was as hectic as expected for a Saturday afternoon. We eventually managed to park the car, and then we wandered out into the afternoon.

In front of the old palace that sat in the centre of the city fortress, stalls had been set up for some occasion that were mostly selling snacks and bric-a-brac, or were flaunting some flyers for some form of a healthier lifestyle. We picked our way through it, stretching our necks to see what all the fuss was over at certain stalls and helping ourselves to free samples, but all the time veering to the shadier side of aisles in between the lines of white canopied stalls.


In Two Months

I have awesome news!!

Less than two months from now I will be on vacation, in JAPAN!!

I am super excited, have borrowed *cough*stolen*cough* my friend's Lonely Planet Japan, and now I need your advice of where I should go and what I should do and see!

I'm going to get the Rail Pass and I'll for sure be going to Tokyo and Kyoto.


A Day in Buk-Gu, Northern Busan


Follow us on Twitter: Busan For 91 Days

Buk-Gu, whose name translates to “Northern District” is one of the fifteen administrative zones which make up Busan. We spent a morning wandering around the area, checking out some of its touristic sights: the Fishing Village Folk Museum, a riverside park, and the Gupowaeseong Japanese Fortress.


It's Not in the Basement of the Alamo!

Today was a practically perfect day!

I got to play hostess to my awesome friend Ahnna on her trip down to Busan.
I bought some new perfume.
Had a great lunch with Ahnna, did a bit of window shopping.  


Oh yeah, and I bought a bike!


I bought a bike and I biked all over my neighborhood and even to the beach. 





Isn't she cute?

I feel like PeeWee I love her so much!

Exploring Seoul

The Instigator – Sinnae-dong, Jungnang-gu.

When I first arrived in Korea in 2005 I was based in Jungnang-gu, which is on Seoul’s most north-western extremity. On face value, there wasn’t really much going for the place but it was close to the Costco in Sangbong, so I used to walk down to it every so often to get more cheese. I also found a little hill, which was often described as a mountain, next to me, which I would wander up regularly because I had the mornings free. This mountain was called Bongwhasan, and the subway station at the end of line 6 is named after here. When it was a little warmer I would also walk to Bongwhasan to take the train into Itaewon. This was as adventurous as I got back then. After a while, I got a little bored with seeing the same things.
