Having fun with Diptic

You may have checked out my Where I’ve Been page before, and noticed that I usually pick one or two pictures for each place I’ve been to not to overload the page (and I still need to update with lots of old photos in my old hard drive).

But sometimes it really really sucks having to pick just one picture!  And now that I finally have my iPhone with me, I’ve been of course playing around with new apps (remember when I first posted about caving and getting one, weeks after I actually ordered it online?).

One of my favorites?  Diptic!  It’s not a free app, but I’ve been loving it! 

So I’ve been using to (slowly) update my Where I’ve Been page!

Check it out!

First I had fun with wedding pictures…

Any other cool picture apps I should know about?  (I have instagram and Camera+ but they haven’t been as exciting as Diptic!)

I think some of these pictures even deserve to be printed, no?

Koreans eat some weird stuff…

Not that I didn’t already know that…  They eat a lot of yummy things too (hello, Korean BBQ!)  But on the street market in Busan, you could buy pretty much any seafood…

Ok, now seriously, does the animal below (whatever the hell it is) look appetizing to you at all?  Because it makes my stomach churn…  I wish I got a video of the things moving, you see the thicker part of their bodies?  It would move up and down along the shaft.  GROSS.

And OMG, is that a mini-shark?  😦

Karl lived in Seoul for 4 years, during his time with the Army, and he even tried eating live octopus.  He swears he would never do it again – he was sick for 4 days afterwards.  But live octopus?  A specialty in some of the places.

Korea! Busan!

I loved Busan, more than Seoul.  Of course, put a beach next to any city and I’ll instantly be enamored.  Plus, the weather in Busan was in the 50’s-60’s while Seoul it was super cold (for my not acclimatized self).

We stayed only a block from the ocean, and got to explore quite a bit.  Karl’s best friend’s wife’s brother (have I lost you yet?) lives there and took us out for yummy dinner twice!  We were there from Saturday-Tuesday and managed to eat Korean BBQ for three meals, and pork katsu (it was the size of my head) for another two.

Here are some pictures from Busan, starting with my favorite picture of the trip:

In Korea!

It will be quiet around these parts this week, as we’re spending the week in Korea!  We’re in Busan until Tuesday, then off to Seoul for the rest of the week.

I’ll update (with pictures!) once we get back to Manila!  For now, a quick preview of Busan at night…

And a funny sign seen during our brief time in Seoul on Saturday before we headed to Busan…
