Our Weekend: Coupling last weekend in Busan

A long, long time ago, I mentioned about coupling in Korea. This is where young couples coordinate their outfits so they're wearing the same thing as a public display of their love for each other. Quite sickening, but cute at the same time. It's been an ongoing joke with the girls about making the boys couple, so for our leaving do, Nick and I decided to set coupling as the theme! I always wonder if the couples have to call each other in the morning and ask what they're going to put on. Do they couple on days when they're not going to see each other? So many questions!

We gave the girls a budget, and they were let loose to buy an outfit for their loved one and themselves. Needless to say, hilarity ensued when we all met up on Saturday night and unveiled the outfits! It didn't take long before the boys made it clear that they actually liked their outfits.

I did notice that Nick's hat kept disappearing, and when I asked where it was he would tell me that he had lost it, but I would find it shoved in his coat pocket, I don't know why he'd do that!

We started the night at Katie's house, then moved to a makeolli bar in KSU that serves makeolli with a big pile of candyfloss on top. Amazing! I would really recommend this place if anyone is a big fan of makeolli. We then went for a few games of pool at Ol'55 before going to Eva's where I had the chance to say goodbye to the roller derby team. After that we headed to the noraebang and sang our little hearts out into the small hours.

The next day, Nick went to get naked at the jimjilbang while I went for a walk around Dongbaek Island with Katie. We all met back up at 7 for some dinner with Amber, my replacement teacher. It was really nice to meet her, and I can't even remember how she must feel being so far away from home after a long flight with the daunting task of having to teach her first couple of lessons. Good luck Amber!

So that's it, my last weekend in Korea is done and dusted. Sad times!

Today I'm going into Nick's school to take some photos of him with his students, then off for my final Spanish lesson before I'm going to have to be using it! Eeeeek! It's all getting real now!

And the giveaway winner has been contacted, so once we have finalised the details I'll share with you!
