Busan, South Korea (Recap at 157 Days)

Busan, South Korea (Recap at 157 Days)

On Tuesday, October 13, we left Osaka for Busan, South Korea, our second country in Asia. Charley has visited Seoul a few different times, and we wanted to be sure on this trip that we had the chance to visit a Korean city other than Seoul. Our time in Busan was really fun, the real highlights being an afternoon walk through 대청공원 (Daecheong Park) on Thursday, October 15.

The restaurant “백철판0410”: one of the first experiences we had our whole trip of having to pantomime our order because the servers spoke no English and there was no English menu!

We went for a hike at beautiful Daecheong Park in Busan.

We also made sure to stop into the Shooshoo Puppy Cafe, which was the first time we had seen such a thing, given that cat cafes are starting to become more and more popular.
