On Facebook, I am a member of many Busan groups: Yoga & Meditation, Zumba, EPIK (the program that I’m, you know, not actually in) and Hiking. With the hiking group especially, instead of using it to meet people/be social/etc, I really just like getting ideas for places to visit around Busan. This weekend, they were planning a hike to Igidae Park, which I had never heard of. A beautiful park stretched out along some of Busan’s most stunning coastline, it is a haven for Koreans seeking some nature that is still very much close to the city center. While I wasn’t really feeling the group thing, it did seem like a cool place to spend a Saturday morning.
The most ironic part of Igidae was the highway hiking we had to do to get there. Then just like that: you’re up and away from the city, with Gwangali Beach and the bridge barely visible through the morning haze.
I don’t have a whole lot of witty commentary/interesting facts to share at the moment (it is 11:00 on a school night, after all), so I’ll let the pictures do the talking:
