Did you know there's a city by the beach in South Korea? It's called Busan and, according to wikipedia, it's home to the 5th busiest seaport IN THE WORLD. But we didn't go there for that-we went to relax by the beach for our spring break. From Seoul, Busan is easy and cheap to get to. We took the speedy KTX train and got there in just under 3 hours. Train travel is so classy.

Soon we were in Busan, which apparently is in the future-just look at these buildings.
For this trip, went out on a limb and decided to stay at a hostel. Our children keep getting bigger and it's becoming harder to squeeze everyone into one room.

For dinner, we went to the world's largest department store, the Sinsegae in Busan. Sinsegae is a chain of department stores and all department stores have a grocery and a food court. I know from experience that Sinsegae's has a good variety. We got burgers and got the kids this "Mexican" pizza. It had tortilla chips on it!
We walked around Sinsegae and Lotte a little and found this for sale:

The rest of the break was spent doing some spring cleaning and playing outside. Spring is finally here. It's been beautiful in Seoul this week.
