Exploring Busan Part 1: Cherry Blossom Hike!

This weekend I decided to explore my new city. My friend told me about a path that bridged Haundae beach (super close to me) and Songjeong Beach and went straight through where I’m living, Jangsan. She also assured me that it’s ripe with cherry blossoms at the moment. Needing no further convincing, we set out straight away!

I cannot take enough pictures of these trees.

A closer look at these flowers, they only bloom for like two weeks!

We made it to a new part of town, and can see a hint of the beach ahead.

I think the whole museum may be full of these larger than life blown up cartoon characters maybe?

We made it to the beach! And I picked up a snack. It's like a fish cake thing on a stick. Pretty great after all that walking.

  1. I love all of it, especially the weird fish cake pic, the cherry blossom pics (I’m a total sucker-something about living in the desert, I think) and that cute pic of you on the exercise bike (soo weird that they’re public). Was just thinking about you since we (Sara K and I) ran into Zarah at Berkeley over our spring break about two weeks ago. Hope it’s amazing as it looks.

    (ps, I’m impressed that you captioned every pic! It was really hard for me to do that after a while)
