One of my favorite sites that I’ve visited was the DMZ and the Gamcheon Culture village in Busan. Luckily enough I was able to score a seat on the bus with a group strangers all of which were students to the DMZ. I’ve seen pictures and documentaries about the DMZ and the fact that I was able to go and see for myself a piece of history was amazing.

Another of my favorite sites I’ve been too was the Gamcheon Culture Village in Busan. The beautiful bright colored houses on the side of the mountain was a breathtaking view and on the far end you could see the glistening water of the bay. I had the chance to walk around the neighborhood and still art splattered across the walls and even on the ground. It felt magical.
