For my Lunar New Year's vacation I decided to check out the port city (and the second largest city in Korea) of Busan. It was amazing! I had no idea how much I missed the ocean, seriously. Anyway, for my first day there I headed out to Haeundae Beach which is on the green subway line (in Busan it is so easy to get around; only three subway lines!). It was absolutely beautiful. The sun way shining, the sea breeze was blowing, families were out feeding the seagulls (I know... gross) and I spent the afternoon lazing about the beach in my boots and scarf (losing the boots and socks momentarily to stick my feet in the water/sand, naturally), people watching and picture taking. Here is a selection for you to enjoy:
View from the West end. Nice skyline, don't you think?
And from the East side I thought it looked almost Mediterranean, but have since been informed by someone who has actually been there that this is not the case. There goes the dream.
