Another birthday in Korea.....A Team Style

 Another birthday in Korea

The big 31 has come and gone...can't believe it's been another year. I was hoping it would go a little better than last year.....and well I think it did.

We headed to Busan...home of sand, fish markets, film festivals, firework festivals, music festivals.........none of that was going on. In fact it was a quiet weekend upon reflection in terms of the number of people we saw.

A bunch of us booked a cool hostel right near the beach called Wow. Using that as our base we didn't do too much on the Saturday because the weather was terrible so we went to the pub. Fish and Chips and John Smiths and friendly banter made a lovely afternoon.

I had to go to the beach we gear up in our A Team T shirts for the first and probably last time...take a few beers and we hang out on the beach. It was almost like being back in Brighton. Well, except the the kilo of sand I had to take out of my bum.

Showered up we headed for a top notch Thai restaurant and my lovely chums had sneaked in a lovely cake.

Although this sounds really uneventful...It was really nice to be out of Daejeon and with good friends that's all I really wanted.

What happened after the restaurant will remain confidential....but I'll just say we ended up swimming in the sea at about 6am. Not the best idea for the end of October. I am just about recovering a nasty cold!!!

This has been my Korean family for the last 2 years. This is the last full weekend we had together. I will miss them dearly. They have been the best/worst friends a guy could want out here. 

The aftermath!!!!
