Some Ranting & Busan Summer Loving

It's past 10 already and I'm really, really sleepy but I must do this (motivation please?). Usually, it takes about two hours for me to finish and be satisfied with what I write here. Lately, it's just hard for me to find time because when evening comes I'm already tired and there's nothing better to do but sleep or give in to my once again facebook addiction. Yes fb addiction, man! You know the feeling when you uploaded some pics and you're just so excited to see new notifications (LIKEs, comments) and you're like checking your fb minute by minute? I hate it but I just couldn't help it. Oh well, that's life. Maybe one simply feels happy when others notice and give nice compliments to him/her in fb. But I really have to divert myself from checking my fb starting from now. You see, that's the problem when you have internet connection 24/7 for free - Facebook is just a click away. Phew.

So, enough of my fb rants. Let's discuss about the adventures in my life, travel adventures specifically. These past two weeks I was such a busy traveling bee. The other Sunday, me and my friend went to Busan, the summer capital of Korea (at least to my perspective). It's our first out-of-town/out-of-Daegu trip on our own because most of the time we just explore the areas in Daegu or we join the tour organized by the KNU International Office (it's free or sometimes you only need to pay a little amount, therefore who says traveling can be so expensive?). Busan, I must say, is such a beautiful place. The beach, oh the beach! Maybe that's the effect when one lives in a place surrounded by mountains (hello Daegu), seeing a beach is like a miracle. Haha!
Of course, this never cross-legged/feeling fashion blogger pose. I've always adored fashion bloggers. They are my inspiration when it comes to "everything fashion". So now, I let myself feel like one.
I'm not a fan of indoor establishments, I  prefer to be out in nature and breathe fresh air but sometimes if there are some galleries with something worthy to look at and with an added bonus of free entrance (okay so that's how thrifty I can be), I walk in. But in the case of the  Busan Aquarium, we decided not to go and  probably taking a picture would suffice. But if you're one big fan of marine life, I say go ahead, stash some cash, and please your eyes with the diversity of organisms the sea has to offer.
Spot the mermaid. Never thought I'd see a mermaid. Reminds me of the beach with a mermaid statue back in the Philippines. Oh, and look at the rocks. Aren't they amazing? And that wooden path and stairs? Just perfect while walking on the coast of Haeundae Beach. That's one of the many things I love about Korea, they have these wooden paths in the mountains and in the coast. They just make life easier!
And this hanging bridge is just awesome!

Loving the view of the beach with skyscrapers. I feel like I'm in California! Haha!
Spent the whole day with these two lovely girls. The one in the middle lives in Busan and oh boy, she's just so good speaking Korean with a Busan accent. Busan accent is kind of different from the accents in other parts of Korea. If you know Bisaya, you'd know what I mean.

Oh, Gwangali Bridge! *insert the song California Girls in the background* 'Coz this reminds me of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Such a serene view. Beautiful.
So all in all, I really had a great time in Busan even just for one day. Still got tons of pics in this trip but I'll just reserve them in my coming posts. By the way, these beautiful flowers I saw while walking in a bridge in a highway. Oh, did I just say there's just a lot of surprises in Busan? Even in highways!
