Last summer, I found out about my summer vacation super late so I couldn’t book any overseas trips, but I did go to two cities on my vacation. I wanted to go to more, but I got sick at the start of my vacation and it was so hot and humid at the time, I …

Early in January, my friend and I decided one Saturday to go to a cafe after we did our medical tests for our renewal for EPIK. Well, she was planning to go and I just invited myself along. The cafe itself is kind of nestled up in the woods in this tiny little area. I …

However, as mentioned in my last post “Solo Trip to Gangneung” I’m a teacher and since it’s advised public officials don’t …

Back in November, I did the Igidae Coastal Walk with my friend and her parents. It was a beautiful day so it was a perfect time to walk along it. The whole walk takes about 3 hours to complete. I’m not in shape and I’m not a hiker so there were some points that left …

At the end of May, the annual Jeonju Cultural Heritage Night Tour (전주 문화재야행) was happening and I wanted to check it out. So, I asked some friends if they were willing to go, which they were (yay!), and it was set. Taking the Express Bus from Nopo Bus Terminal in Busan to Jeonju Express …

Yes, yes, a whole month and I’m back to my blog. I’ve been trying to figure out what to write. I kind of wrote something about my first few days in Busan, but it got so long because so much happened and then I forgot to keep writing, because even more was happening and it …
