This weekend, we have taken the KTX high-speed train down to Korea’s second city Busan. Located at the Pacific, it is a city of 3.5 million people with its iconic Haeundae beach and a newly opened Park Hyatt where we are staying thanks to a cheap “opening special” rate.

Coming down here reminded me how much I appreciate seeing the horizon, to breathe the salt in the seaside air at night and to be away from work if only for a weekend.
