Hiking Seokbulsa 석불사

As if randomly happening across Miss Alyssa on a Friday night, climbing the Busan Tower and discovering Jagalchi Market on Saturday and conquering Taejondae on Sunday wasn’t enough, Monday came around. Monday was the official day of rest after Chuseok and somehow we managed to allow Alyssa to talk us into doing the opposite of … Continue reading

Chuseok 2: Taejongdae 태종대

Taejongdae (tay-jOHng-day) 태종대 Taejongdae is a national park located on Yeongdo (yong-dough or doh or doe) 영도 an island found just behind the Jagalchi Fish Market. This island is massive and is about 7 Iroquois Fallses sprinkled with about 4 Westons and a Meadowcroft, for good measure. We met Alyssa at Nampo station and jumped a bus … Continue reading

추석 Chuseok 1: Nampo & Jagalchi

추석 Chuseok 1: Nampo & Jagalchi

Anyong! The choking heat of the Korean summer has finally calmed itself, Iiago, and we have been introduced to the glory that is autumn in Busan. The days are happily up to mid twenties but the evenings invite you to sport a sweater, paired with a fashionable scarf if you so dare. It truly is … Continue reading

Wanderabooties Switchin’ Gears

So there you have it, that was our round-about journey to Korea. And now we’re here. Busan. B-town. Living it large. We’ve been here for 3 months now and are starting to feel somewhat settled (although “settled” is not really a word synonymous with “Korea” – in more ways than one). We rearranged our shoebox-sized … Continue reading

Exit – Stage West

Exit – Stage West

So here it was, everything we’d been working towards and hypothesising about over the past six months or so was about to become real, the time had finally come to stop squawking on about leaving and leave. At this point I felt like we’d already left so many times. We had a wonderful going away party … Continue reading

Do You Know Ed?

HOWWWDEEEE Welcome to Edmonton, Alberta, where the skies are big, the welcomes are warm  and the portions are a’ hefty. Welcome to Canada’s America. That may sound like a bizarre introduction to a city, but what with all the conservative politics, wide wide streets and cowboy hats you just seem to get a certain Wild West … Continue reading

The Rocky Road

The Rocky Road

ALLLLL ABOOARD!!!! This train is the stuff dreams are made of. From coast to coast this badboy zips through one magnificent nation to reveal the stunning back wood beauty that only Canada can offer. Unfortunately, we only had the time to grace this train on its expedition through the westernmost leg of its journey. (When … Continue reading

My Way Or The Sea-To-Sky Highway

My Way Or The Sea-To-Sky Highway

It perhaps wasn’t the best day for driving a mountain highway but we really didn’t have much choice. It was our last day in Vancouver and to balance out all the city exploration we had racked up over the last few days it was time to head for hills! We weren’t going to let a … Continue reading

Puppets. Treasure. Island.

Puppets. Treasure. Island.

Oh boy Vancouver’s certainly been something! As if mountains, forests and seasides weren’t enough, we spent a day in a magical place called Granville Island. Granville is an area of Vancouver located under an overpass. I know what you’re thinking; graffiti, broke-down cars and beligerent homeless dudes, Granville Island has all that…and more! Vancouver really pulled … Continue reading
