I watched Train to Busan on an actual train to Busan

(Oh, like you wouldn’t.)

So, I just got back from a trip to Korea. Knowing it was possible to make a day trip from Seoul (2h 25m by express train), I couldn’t resist the opportunity. I angled my tablet towards the window to avoid the mortification of looking like the cringeworthy tourist I was.

This is a better post than ‘sorry for not posting for forever’.  At least one person must have known what I was doing, especially as I was wearing a pretty ostentatious Frankenstein hoodie. So here is a badly-edited post containing some utterly pointless photos of an actual KTX train, as used in the movie!

still no zombies. pah.

Bonus: They love their wacky doughnuts in Korea. I could eat these for every meal:wp-1484401422613.jpg ktx train to busan

Actual Busan was lovely. While the valley-like setup means that the sewers waft some questionable smells up, it’s mitigated by every sewer grate being covered with mats and a shit-ton (sorry) of public flower beds everywhere. And: Christmas lights!

Here’s the awesomeness that was Busan’s Gwangbok-dong Culture and Fashion Street:

Maybe, if you look hard enough, you can see a zombie in this photo. Ignore the fact that it might be my reflection:
