Hi guys, I’m Hwajin! I know it’s a little bit difficult to pronounce to you guys. So, I go by BRENDA or JIN! Just call me whatever you want. OK, let’s talk about me.
I’m a senior in university and I live in Busan. I have lived Texas for a year as an exchange student. As you know after checking my video, I’m crazy in traveling. Since I was born, my father is my best tourmate so far. He enjoys traveling in his youth. I guess I might have the same characteristic with him haha. 

Anyway! I have been traveling 22 countries so far. Both North and South America, Middle East, Europe, and absolutely Asia. During the traveling, I met so many kinds of people from everywhere. This experience makes me more outgoing and friendly. At the first time when I arrived abroad, I was so fearful of everything. Because I couldn’t speak English very well and I was traveling alone. However, I noticed that language was not a problem. Every moment makes my life more valuable. Sharing each other’s feeling and hanging out with people made us to be good friends. I BET I can be a cool friend to you guys.

Haedong Yonggungsa Temple

Imagine a temple on the beach, how amazing it is? We are heading to the only one temple in the world which located nearby ocean.
This temple was constructed in 1376, but it was destroyed by the war. So, it has been rebuilt.
It is the one of popular tour attraction in Busan, so many foreigners are very interested in it. I bet you can experience a lot of Asian beauty. Before we take a look at the temple, I want to be a friend with you guys. For this, we’ll take a lunch together and have a talk. This is very helpful to know each other. I’m a local person, so I will give you a list included the best restaurant.

After lunch, we will take a bus to go Yonggungsa, and it might take 30 mins and after getting off a bus, we gonna take a walk to the entrance for 10mins. Around the entrance, there are many kinds of souvenir shops and food courts. If you are little hungry, you can take some foods.

In a temple, there has many meaningful status and each statue has a symbol. For instance, one of the statues has a meaning that if you touch his nose and stomach, you gonna get a baby. Or, if you throw a coin into a basket, your wish is coming true! After the end of the tour, you will have free time. If you want to take more time with me, I’ll be a pleasure to hang out with you guys.
