Beyond Seoul: Pohang's Firework Festival!

This weekend I took the KTX (high speed train) to a town called Pohang on the east coast of Korea.


It's best known for being the furthest east you can go in South Korea and lots of people go there on New Years Day to watch the first sunrise :)

I went there for the International Fireworks Festival and it was a blast!

Watch it here:

The town was really lovely, and I'm so glad we got to visit on a rather cold day. It's usually really hot there in the summer, especially since this summer has been mega-hot all over Korea, but our weekend was a little rainy (but not too much!) and overcast - just how I like it!
Luckily though, the weather was great for the fireworks and a night walk on the beach :)

Do you like fireworks? The noise freaks me out but they're so pretty!

How to find cheap flights to Saudi Arabia?
If you're seeking to save money on your next ticket, Saudi Arabia is a great place to start your research. Various websites allow you to search for the cheapest flights to Saudi Arabia, but this article will teach you how to discover the cheapest tickets in a far more effective manner. How to find low-cost flights For travel purposes, it is sometimes possible to get very low-cost flights to Saudi Arabia. Here are a few examples: 1. Take a low-cost flight to the nearest airport and spend the night there.As an example, if you are travelling from the United Kingdom, you will be required to fly to the closest airport, which is most likely to be in Istanbul or Dubai. 2. Always select the cheapest plane available.Always make an effort to get the most affordable flight ticket. Why? This is because the airline that offers you the lowest fare is most likely to be the most reputable. 3. Obtain travel insurance in the event that you must cancel your vacation for any reason.you may have to cancel your trip due to unforeseen circumstances, in which case you will want travel insurance. 4. Always book your flights with the cheapest airline available to save money.Always make an effort to book tickets with the most affordable airline companies in order to avoid wasting money on a trip that isn't essential. 5. Always look for the cheapest mode of transportation.Every day, there are thousands of flights from one location to another, so it is always a good idea to compare the rates of all of the available flights. 6. Always hunt for the cheapest plane tickets for your trip, but keep in mind that other aspects like safety, availability, and convenience should be considered as well. While travelling, you should take into consideration the cost of hotels and other accommodations. 7. Never buy an airline ticket with the expectation that the price will rise the next day.Only purchase an airline ticket after you have already made the decision to go, and be sure to pay all of the charges associated with the booking. When is the best time of year to purchase a plane ticket? When it comes to booking your ticket, you'll want to consider a variety of different aspects. Before purchasing a trip, you should look into the pricing of the lowest flights that are available at the time you wish to travel. If you have additional money in your budget, you may want to explore flying with a less well-known airline that provides cheaper fares if you don't mind paying a little more. Likewise, booking as early as possible can allow you to take advantage of lower flight prices later on, if available. There is no one solution that is applicable to all individuals or all situations. Really, it all comes down to what you're looking for in terms of both time and money. If you want to fly at a period when there is less demand for flights, the ideal time to book would be just before the flight's departure time. It may, however, make more sense to wait until closer to the day of your travel if you want to save money on your ticket while still maintaining some flexibility with your itinerary. Buying tickets online versus upgrading on your flight For those looking to save money on their flight, booking online and checking for the best discounts are both options. Those who do not have the time to go through hundreds of websites or who are uncomfortable making online payments might choose to upgrade their seats on the aircraft instead. This is accomplished by the use of a dedicated queue at the ticket desk, where customers may pay more money in exchange for better seating placement or enhanced food selections.
