True friendship isn't about being inseparable, it's being separated and nothing changes.
Our friend visited us here and we decided to show her the second largest city in Korea - Busan. Busan is said to be the summer capital of Korea, known for its beach and mouth-watering fresh seafood. We took a bullet train from Cheonan-Asan to Busan and rode the train for about 2 hours.
Haedong Yonggungsa Temple is a temple dedicated to Great Goddess Buddha of Mercy. It appears that the goddess lived in solitary by the sea. The motto of the temple is "at least one of your wishes will be answered through your heartful prayers."
When in Korea, don't forget to do this pose! LOL!
Street food here in Korea are the best!
At the main train station, there is a tourist information. You can find maps and guides there that will help you get around Busan. We roamed around Busan using all kinds of public transport from taxis, subway, and sight seeing bus. It wasn't difficult to navigate because all the tourist spots are close to each other. You can walk around Haeundae Beach and Dong Baek Island Park, it was a nice breezy stroll overlooking the most popular tourist destinations here in Busan.

Here's to another excellent adventure and may the stopping never start. - Jason Mraz
Gwangalli Bridge is the largest bridge over the ocean in Korea.
We decided to have dinner at Jagalchi Fish Market - the largest fish market in Korea that offers the freshest seafood. It's a must for every visitor to go here and try to eat bounties from the sea. We had an awesome dinner experience here, if you are not afraid to try anything.
The colorful and vibrant market.
Yes, we ate fresh sea urchins.
We ended our day with this awesome and very fresh dinner and had our dessert at Mango Monster. It was a refreshing dessert filled with ice, soft tofu, sweet mangoes and mango ice cream - total package of tart and a little bit of sweet in a bowl. A perfect way to end our night. Sadly, I don't have a picture of it and words are not enough to describe it.
We are happy on the road and happy on the go.
