Final Korean Date Night

When Nick and I first got together, we would only ever see each other at the weekend because of how busy we used to be. Eventually it got to the point where we spent more time together, so decided to always try and keep one free night in the week to do something.

We used to try and do something new or different and would alternate weeks with secret planning and conniving. We were always trying to out do each other with grand or unusual plans. Eventually though, it got to the point where saving money for our next adventure was more important than exploring the hidden nooks and crannies of Busan, so that came to an end. But as our Busan days are numbered, we decided to have one last date night before we left.

This time it was all about old favourites. And this wouldn't have been a proper favourites night without some makeolli, so off we went to the makeolli hut in KSU. This is where we went the first time we ever went out together. Just after i had persuaded Nick to go to the cat cafe and he had had an awful time of it!

We ordered our favourite, BBQ'd spicy pork and potatoes! We did try something new though with some sweet potato makeolli. It was really tasty and kind of tasted like Christmas, so it was good to get us in the mood.

Next, we went to a new discovery, an Italian restaurant in KSU introduced to me by Sara. There we enjoyed a glass of wine and wrote a wish for the wish tree.

Finally, we headed to our last port of call, Nampo tower. This is one of my favourite places to go on a warm evening, when you can see all of the lights of Busan shining brightly. We walked to the base of the tower, and here is the big bit of news, Nick had agreed that we could put a lock there! We chose a place we thought we could remember easily incase we ever decide to go in search of it. I hope it's still there in 10 years time! Nick was distraught as he was reading some of the other locks, and one snapped in his hand. I assured him that they're not like love voodoo locks and the couple won't suddenly break up because of the lock, but he spent a long time trying to fix it.

On the way down we asked a man to take a photo of us, who proved to be useless, so we grabbed this cool looking Korean guy on a skate board who bent his body in ways I didn't think were possible to get this very mediocre photo.

So, our last date night was lots of fun, and I am very grateful to Nick for letting me take pictures where he is pulling a slightly normal face!


And a reminder to ENTER THE GIVEAWAY! It closes on Monday so there's not much time left!
