Busan – A Rainy Welcome

The next stop on our South Korea trip was Busan! We were excited to see the contrast between the calm countryside of Jeju and the busy city vibes of Busan. After our very short flight from Jeju to Gimhae International Airport with Korean Air, we hopped onto the light railway train / metro and headed towards Seomyeon station (metro line 1). For Busan, we booked a small apartment via Airbnb which was close by Seomyeon station. If you are looking for a central and convenient place to stay, this should be your choice. Seomyeon station is connected to metro lines 1 and 2. Besides that, the direct neighborhood is full of cool bars, restaurants, shops, and cafes.

We walked into our apartment and both of us were speechless. What an awesome view over Busan!

After a short breather in our apartment, enjoying the view, we went out exploring the city. We instantly noticed that the rain was heavier than we expected. So we went straight into the next mini-mart in order to buy a second umbrella (we thought one will be enough for the both of us, huge mistake) 😉

Since it was already time for dinner we headed to a small restaurant close to our apartment. Again, the app MangoPlate was very helpful 🙂

Because the rain was getting even worse (and dinner is not complete without a proper dessert ;-)) we looked out for a cafe to sit down and enjoy some sweets.

We found the cafe Modern Table, here we ordered a Nutella chocolate waffle with what could only be homemade ice cream. It turned out to be a gigantic dessert as you can see in the following pictures. And yes! It was as delicious as it looks 🙂

With that much chocolate, we were more than ready to go out and explore even more of the rainy vibes of Busan. For taking some awesome shots, the weather was perfect. All these umbrellas and reflections are perfect conditions for some nice street scenery shots 🙂 The photos we got were so rewarding we even forgot that our shoes and socks were completely soaked. At least I can now verify that my Nikon Z6 is definitely waterproof 😉 Otherwise, I couldn’t show you the pictures below.

Oh, and of course the view from our apartment was even more impressive at night.
