After taking the subway back to our hotel area, we grabbed a quick fried chicken dinner before our “Busan at Night” tour picked us up. It turned out that we were the only people on the tour, which was lovely! We drove to the Gwangalli Beach area and got on a “yacht” (not really) for a short tour around the harbor, which gave us great views of the Diamond Bridge, beautifully lit up. We were the only people on the boat as well, and even though it was chilly, it was a lovely, romantic experience. Continue reading “Busan: Night Tour”
Today I forced myself to get out and do something adventurous despite my lack of companions. I decided to go check out the Seoul Iris Garden, which is right across the street from the Dobongsan subway station.
Eighth Army Band’s brass ensemble, Spartan Brass, was playing at an Azalea Festival at the end of April, so we decided to go check out the flowers and take in an excellent free concert at the same time!. The main draw of the festival was an entire hillside covered in colorful azaleas.
