Day 18 in Busan
We left Seoul today. Dragging our luggage once again, we headed for Seoul Station for our bullet train ride to Busan, South Korea’s second biggest city, which also happens to be a beach city.
We were overwhelmed by the heat when we first arrived, and we were worried that the weather would continue to haunt us on our stay in Busan. Luckily, that wasn’t the case. We stayed in one of the guestroom in Kayla’s cousin’s apartment complex, which was only a few minutes’ walk from the beach. The ocean breeze cooled the heat down, and we enjoyed a relative cool and mild weather.
After settling down, we strolled to the beach for a bit of relaxing time. We were greeted by mounts of beautiful sand art. We then walked around the area for a bit, and we decided to experience a coin karaoke place. Instead of paying for the number of hours we stayed there, we paid for the number of songs we sang.

For dinner, we went to a seafood restaurant Kayla’s aunt invited us to try. We were first eased in with side dishes: a couple plates of kimchi, shredded raw squid, oysters, and a large plate of sashimi. I’m not the biggest fan of seafood, so after the first couple bites of excitement, it started to become a little repetitive. After we finished the large plate of sashimi, I thought our dinner was done… but it wasn’t. The waitress came with more plates for seafood… a fish we can’t name, a bowl of fish soup… but our stomachs were already full! We tried to chow down as much as we could before we finally surrendered.
