Igidae: Seaside Park in Busan

We’re baaaaaaack! That’s right, we’re here in the ROK again doing the teaching thing.

While we don’t get a whole lot of time off with our current job, we make the most of our weekends. Last Saturday we took the subway down to Namcheon and walked all over the place. Here’s a map of our movements for the afternoon.


Not bad! About 11 km total for the day, and we ended up at a British Meetup in a craft brewery. We may have spent a lot of our ‘Play Money’ for the month, but we sure had a great time.

Igidae Park (이기대 도시자연공원) is a seaside park with lots of trails, forests, rocks, and even a few caves to explore. It’s a beautiful area. I’ll get out of the way now and just let you look at pictures!

The face I made was due to the Reflexology Rock Walkway, which goes about 100m. Basically, one removes one’s shoes and then walks across rocks set in cement that have been specifically placed to poke you in the feet.


It was almost unbearable. I was cursing with every step. An ajeossi walked along, unperturbed, next to us. I broke out in a sweat from the pain and felt nausea rise in my gorge. Halfway through, I didn’t think there was any way I could make it. But I did! I almost threw up, and I now know what a kidney stone must feel like (except not in the feet), but I made it!

It was a great trip!
