Hello all! Sorry this blog post is a little late but, better late than never (says every one of my students who hand in their homework late).
Last weekend I went to my first soccer game at Gudeok Stadium, a three minute walk from my house. Gudeok Stadium first opened in 1928 and hosted soccer matches during the Summer Olympics in 1988. Currently, it is home to the Busan Transportation Corporation FC. It’s exciting to watch them play but, the team has such an odd name. Transportation Corporation? Why can’t they be the Busan Bears or Busan Barracudas or Busan Barbarians..
I also love that when you go watch a soccer match it’s free entrance, BYOB and you can bring in ALL THE SNACKS! I brought in an entire pizza.
Below is a photo of the Busan Tower from the Lotte Department Store roof, accessible for anyone to enjoy. I recommend going up there, it’s a nice place to spend an afternoon. You get a great view of the mountains on one side and the harbour on the other. There are also little parks with benches that look over the view and a coffee shop up there too.
The below photo is a throwback to when I went to Gamcheon Culture Village a few weeks ago. This was actually quite candid, I was laughing about something and was standing at the right place at the right time. True story.
You’re probably wondering why things got weird. You’ll find out in my vlog below. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel, I post every week about my adventures in South Korea!
