Today we woke up at 5:30am wide awake and ready to explore what Busan had to offer. With our hotel literally on the beach we took a stroll and observed the morning activity on Haeundae beach.
While enjoying the peacefulness of the early morning we were approached by some men, who I thought wanted Ked or I to take a picture of them, but instead they wanted to take a picture with us! Lol
During this trip we have definitely experienced a lot of stares, secret photos being taken of us and a store clerk who flat out asked if we were famous 🙂 Ked and I have learned that this is a part of the travel and to join in on the fun and pose as if we are famous.
The water is a tad bit cool
After 10 tries Ked finally got a good shot
A rare photo pose of Ked….plus he got his feet out
After our cardio stroll on the beach we were hungry and looked for a traditional spot to eat. We rolled up on a little restaurant that was filled with older Korean people enjoying their morning meal and fellowship.
For breakfast we ordered the spicy octopus and beef hot pot and boy was it delicious and filling.
For the remaining of our day our friend and K-State alum, Yebin Yoon, scooped us up and showed us a few spots in Busan.
We went to a super posh coffee shop called Cafe Yoon! This coffee shop had amazing views of the sea. There were a lot of people enjoying the views and coffee. Lots of people took pictures including us.
While enjoying the company and food the three of us talked about Korean culture and observations we made and how Yebin’s life is going after her time at K-State.
This banana pudding was super legit.
The next spot Yebin took us to was the 1376 built Haedong Yonggungsa temple. As the late afternoon set in and the day began to cool off it was the perfect time visit this temple.
When we headed out we bought this yummy sweet bread that had nuts in it and was pressed down flat on a griddle.
To end our day we took another walk on Haeundae beach and enjoyed dinner at this fusion spot on
which is a famous street for fusion and creative restaurants.
Tomorrow is our Busan event and I am looking forward to connecting with more K-State alumni.
Until next time
