Visit The Busan Fireworks Festival While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Thu, Oct 30, 2014 @ 10:08 AM

Every year, Busan (Korea's second largest city) plays host to the Busan International Fireworks festival. With over one million people (including many English teachers) flocking to Gwangali Beach where the fireworks are staged, it makes it one of the largest festivals in South Korea, and is certainly worth a visit. In fact, this is my second year attending the festival. and when you see the pictures you'll know why.

Teachers in Korea Kickoff Fall with some Fireworks, Wine & Food

Posted on Wed, Oct 08, 2014 @ 10:12 AM

            Well, another gloriously sweaty Korean summer has come to an end, and the brisk breezes of October have announced the arrival of fall. Per usual, seasons in this country seem to change in the blink of an eye, so I have found myself scrambling with my wardrobe as I transition from shorts and T-shirts to jeans and jackets. Though I personally despise cold weather, checking out some festivals does take some of the sting out of that autumn chill. This weekend provided some excellent options, and I took full advantage of my cancelled Saturday class to check out the International Fireworks Festival in Seoul, as well as the International Food and Wine Festival here in Daejeon.

Seoul International Fireworks Festival

Posted on Thu, Oct 10, 2013 @ 03:03 PM

Four countries. Fireworks Festival. And the Han River. Sounds like a lovely fall Saturday evening in Korea, right? After hearing good reviews from last year's festival, we decided to hit 2013's International Fireworks Festival in Seoul, which was to feature fireworks from Korea, Japan, France, and Canada. Setting out with the vision of a picnic on the bank of the Han while watching fireworks overhead, we soon realized that it wasn't going to play out quite as we'd imagined... Turns out, it's pretty easy to completely bungle an excursion to this festival. Here's my review of the festival as well as some advice on what not to do if you're planning on going in the future...
