Don't expect a beach hotel when you see "Haeundae" in the name. This is instead right smack in the center of Centum City, a newer development in Busan where you'll find the world's largest department store, the BEXCO convention center, the BIFF film center and the soon-to-be-built mega television headquarters for KNN. It's an extremely convenient location for shopping and sightseeing since you're steps away from everything including the metro. The hotel is smack in the middle, 3 subway stops either way, between 2 of Busan's most popular beaches - Haeundae and Gwangali. There is a free shuttle bus in the summertime going to Haeundae Beach. We were lucky enough to have a Garden Suite which was perfect for our long stay because it has 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen, a washing machine and a garden terrace. Very tastefully decorated and service has always been good with staff trying very hard to communicate in English. Breakfast buffet is pretty good and there are lots of other dining options in the building as well including a couple of coffee shops, 3 bar/lounges and even a GS25 variety store. The Korean Spa in the basement is pretty nice with 4 pools and 2 saunas. Only drawback is no wi-fi in the rooms, only in the lobby.

... in Korea but JJ looks at us... we look at him... he looks back at us? We look back at him? JJ turns around and starts walking to a different part of the temple. I look at Roxanne and ask, "What just happened?" It turns out the some of the people on our tour know more about the temple than JJ. Oh well, I'm sure he'll know more about the city. We take the train back to Busan and JJ doesn't say much. When we get to the city we are taken to a street ...
... were getting ready to eat dinner one of our new roommates bounded down from his top bunk and ran to the bathroom. Needless to say, he got violently sick, and we heard everything. Good time for dinner, huh? I hope it was just a one time thing and that he is better now.

... rice and naan bread. We would have never thought that we would come to Korea and have some of the best Indian food in our lives. This is one of the many things I love about Korea: you really never know what's around the corner.
Later that evening we went to the casino by the beach. Since this was the first time both Gaby and Hommar had ever been to a casino, we walked around, trying our best to explain how all the ...
... ll get onto the three hundred or so bows we were encourage to do at a later point, but for now the s******ing. So we were informed we could stand up after two hours of sitting crossed legged and I muttered something under my breathe, can’t remember exactly what but I was voicing my satisfaction about being able to finally stand up. I’m not patient, I’m quite the fidget when uncomfortable and I was relieved. My relief sent Amy into s****** paradise and ...
... prescribed lines - in week one, everything was insane and now in week... 4? ..5? things are begining to be 'the norm'. Maybe I'm begining to think there's no reason that sausages shouldn't be lime green; guys my age always went out in checkered bow-ties and shorts; or maybe grapes have always had the consistency of bubble-gum.
So, the last week or two:
