One year and counting.....

Welcome to Busan, NOT Pusan.

Jamie and I boarded the KTX train (Seoul to Busan) at 9 am. It was a smooth ride that eventually led us to the promise land (Haeundae beach).

A boat cruise

We were told that a boat cruise is one of the best ways to see many on the islands and rock formations around th coast of Busan. We boarded the boat and fell in love with the rocky waves (and therefore, VERY ROCKY boat). The babies around us didn't feel the same way(sissys).

Our room

We stayed at the Golden Beach Hotel, one minute from the beach. We were so impressed with our room and the facilities. Can you believe we had internet in our room and we didn't have to pay for it?!!

Rainy Day

Unfortunately, Saturday was not as promising as Friday (even though I checked the weather report and it said it was suppose to be sunny with clouds). I guess the weatherman MEANT to say that there was to be POURING rain and gusting ALL day Saturday. But we made the best of a bad situation. First we walked to the brand new (2006)APEC building. Then we went for swim at the Grand Hotel. What a treat that was, especially since this was the very first swimming pool we have found in Korea all year.

Luckily, Haeundae is b=not only surrounded by ocean, but also a sea of great Western restaurants: Bennigens, TGI Fridays, outback Steakhouse AND Starbucks. We camped out at Starbucks for some light reading and some wave watching (from our window, of course).


What interesting clothes you find in Korea.

Jamie enjoyed the Busan International Motor Show (good way to spend a rainy day). if you ask him about it, he could talk your ear off about cam shafts and what-the-do-wha-hickies and the latest car fashions.

Sunny Day

Sunday (our one year wedding anniversary) was a delightfully sunny day, with a few clouds (even though the weatherman said it was suppose to rain--maybe he was off by one day).

We were so inspired by the weather that we decided to get our lunch to go and eat it on the beach.

We went to another beach close by and found this AMAZING pagotta right on the water. We got this man to take our picture but he could quite figure out WHERE the button was on the camera AND his hat got carried by the wind and he had to find it.

We found this little guy on the beach and we decided that he needed to learn how to surf. So we tied him to his board and let the little guy experience what it's like to be a REAL surfer.

Jamie made this, isn't it sweet?

Here's some classic beach volleyball.

Then we made our way back to Seoul and the honneymoon was officially OVER. Well, not officially till tommorow...
