This past weekend we took a belated two year anniversary trip to Busan. We had three days off from school so we decided to hop on the KTX train from Seoul to Busan! The train only takes two and a half hours and can travel up to 300km/hr. Neither of us have been on a … Continue reading Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan
We recently mentioned in our anniversary post that we were planning on taking a belated trip in celebration of our two year wedding anniversary. Well, Ryan has spilled the beans and told me that tomorrow morning we are taking the KTX train to Busan!
