Our trip was possible thanks to the Visit Korea Year programme between 2010 and 2012. This year being the last year, we are lucky to have taken advantage of the government programme where Foreigners like me are able to experience a bit more of Korea other than Seoul by travelling on their free buses. Plus I was able to take one companion, which is how Y was able to join me.
Haeundae beach from the jjimjilbang window. Jjimjilbang is the local bathhouse type accommodation dotted all around the country. Some like it, some don't, we just stayed here because it was the cheapest option available, but not sure if Y will ever return. She didn't exactly find it too comfortable...
The big one for Y, the little one for me, two silly messages after a small music concert by the beach. Haha.
One of the breads I bought from the popular bakery on the last morning of our trip.
