Haeundae Guesthouse in Busan, South Korea

I always wanted my trips to be organized but sometimes I have to let nature take its course and just enjoy the moment and veer away from the norm. This is my second time to go on a trip without making any prior reservation for accommodation. Our Busan trip was a spur-of-the moment decision so it was a good thing that I have read about Haeundae Guesthouse while preparing for our trip last year.

Nami Island

There is something about going out of the city that is refreshing. I somehow enjoyed the long subway ride from Seoul to Gapyeong as I observed how my surroundings changed from buildings to landscape.

Myeong-dong Cathedral

This is my first time to travel to South Korea, The Land of the Morning Calm. Three days before my flight, the Philippines had been threatened by Typhoon Chedeng. It made me restless as it may affect my travel plans. My prayers had been answered and I had been blessed with a good weather on the day that I was leaving for Incheon. Since I am staying in Myeong-dong and it was Easter Sunday, my goal on my first day was to visit Myeong-dong Cathedral to thank God for giving me another opportunity to travel.
