Well hello there! This is our first time in South Korea (not Best Korea). We’ve been in Busan for three days and I’m writing this as I’m on the bullet train to Seoul.
Day 1 mostly consisted of us sleeping the whole day and recovering from the plane trip. I feel like an old man sometimes.
This country is remarkably similar to Taiwan and Japan. The people are much louder, and a lot worse at staying on their side of the footpath. Steph regularly smashes into people through no fault of her own.
Almost everyone has a Galaxy, or Galaxy Note phone. Not filthy American or Japanese phones here!
In fact, everything seems to be made in Korea. Or at least was designed here. The elevators are made by Hyundai, Cuckoo rice cooker, Daewoo/Kia cars, and Samsung EVERYTHING! Seriously there was a Samsung fashion store. I think Korea was unique in that regard, where they seem to have a few mega corporations duking it out. True capitalism.
Normal tea is really hard to come by. It always ginseng or Herbal teas. Which apparently doesn’t taste good.
Quite an aging population as well I think, a lot of elderly people.
REALLY hot food.
We got a hair cut today. Found some place with no customers. Cost 10 bucks for each of us. I got lucky and had a decent haircut for once instead of my egg shaped shark haircut which I always get when I go overseas. She spent a lot more time on my hair instead of Stephs too for some reason. Maybe my hair was really nice.
Wifi everywhere! Subway trains have wifi too! This bullet train has wifi! I don’t think I even need a sim card if I were to live here.
I always prefer cash, card has failed me in the past
We have to take our shoes off!
We even get a washing machine with this motel which is great
Super hot soup, gigantic wolf dog, me sleeping weirdly This gigantic dog had a sign next to it which probably said DONT TOUCH, DANGER, GIANT WOLF DOG. But we don’t actually read korean well enough yet.
LOOK AT THAT THING. I think it’s a lion
We were desperate, nowhere to hang clothes! The cleaning lady was probably shocked when she came in
This is a smile of pain from the hot soup maybe?
These were random European statue things
We had a plate of sashimi, with disgusting mollusc stuff they killed on the spot
Eeew it’s like eating slime
Samsung fashion! Didn’t go inside though, it looked pretty high end
Steph was quite pleased with this photo, I think it is because of the dashingly handsome model she got to take snaps of
Cat cafe! I stayed far away from that place for obvious reasons
This place was called gwangbok… Or something
Hottoek! This hottoek stuff is basically pan fried sweet pancakes. In Busan there is a special one which have all the nuts and seeds in it which taste so damn good.
