Well I am now two years away from turning 30. Ha-ha I spent my 28th birthday at the Chinhae Naval Base and got to tour around a little bit of the town. The drive down there from Daegu was so relaxed. I loved seeing all the green mountains and feeling like I was getting deeper into the countryside of Korea. The weather was perfect, a warm fall day, and I got to enjoy it with my little family and my brother and sister, who came to visit us for a couple weeks.
My favorite part of the day was the birthday-breakfast my sister treated me to at Bob’s Delight (probably my favorite baker and coffee place, although a little pricey). We had a fantastic ham and cheese bread, ice coffee, and some ooey-gooey delicious “honey bread.” I’d probably call it more of a warm, cream cheese danish.
Driving to Chinhae!
Great view at the top of the Jinhae Museum of Changwon City.
I also enjoyed some shopping at Etude House. I had been wanting to go here since before we moved– I had heard other bloggers rave about their beauty products!
A delicious ham and cheese panini with a shot of espresso from Caffe Pascucci for breakfast the next morning. ❤
There was a beautiful Eco-park nearby that we toured later after breakfast.
Below is the fabulous, dark forest cherry cake that my sister and brother surprised me with!
It was sad to have to say goodbye, especially since we haven’t lived in the continental U.S. for over two years now, so visits from family are not as easy as they used to be for holidays and special events. I am very thankful they were able to visit us in Korea and spend some time with their niece. ❤
