Seoul & Busan

Day 2

Over a Korean-style breakfast, we compared notes on how wonderful the showers and beds in our hotel felt. Some of us were so tired last night that we watched a whole K-drama in Korean and understood it! While the adults went on a quest for decent coffee (and almost lost a credit card to a rogue vending machine), everyone else got ready to hand off our luggage to be taken to Busan.

Before traveling to Busan, we visited the HiKR Ground. Located inside the Korea Tourism Organization Seoul Center, HiKR Ground is a Korean tourism publicity center where visitors can experience K-pop and view media art at the same time. The name 'HiKR Ground' embodies the meaning that Korea (KR) will greet ("Hi") global tourists and become a playground.

Next we had lunch at Seoul's train station before taking the bullet train to Busan.

The weather in Busan was quite rainy, so we had to change plans and head for an early dinner. Busan is South Korea's second largest city, and an important port. Seafood is a staple of the Busan diet, although our hosts also prepared a pork dish. We have been lucky to eat at authentic restaurants and to learn about Korea's amazing food culture.

After dinner, we took a wet and windy stroll through Gamcheon Culture Village ( 감천문화마을.) The area is known for its layered streets and brightly painted houses, which have been restored and enhanced in recent years to attract tourism. Although many shops were closed due to the rain, we were able to enjoy beautiful murals and views before heading to our hotel.
