Beach Yesterday, Mountains today

We took our first trip to Haeundae Beach yesterday, one of the most famous in Korea. It was a great beach! We’ll go swimming in a couple weeks after I heal up fully from a minor medical procedure, and definitely go back for more craft beer and seafood.

Today, we took the cablecar up a mountain at Geumgang Park. It goes high above the city and gives you a great view. We could see Gwangalli Beach, Haeundae Beach, our neighbourhood, and many ones that we still need to explore. So excited to live in such a great place.

Little Things

When moving to a new country, I always bring little things to help my new space feel like home. We’re lucky that this time we moved to Korea in the Autumn. It’s the best time of the year in this country (in all countries?). When I moved here in 2012, it was much harder to adjust to the absolutely fucking freezing February weather.

This little Moka coffeemaker makes two shots of espresso. I bought it just after returning from living abroad for the first time in Italia, at McGuckin Hardware in Boulder. It doesn’t fit on our tiny stove, but I’ve MacGyvered it with a frying pan.

Little things. Baby steps. That’s how you live in a new place.
