When writing our last newsletter (you can sign up for it here) I was reminiscing about our 6-month stay in South Korea …
October 22, 2016: Some 230 kms and 17 days of strenuous hiking along the Baekdu-daegan in South Korea. And that’s just a third of the total distance we hiked! Here’s an impression of stage 3 of our great Korean adventure.
Underground, above the ground, on foot, or varying from using 1 to 4 wheels or more. See the fascinating, nifty, and fun ways of traveling in South Korea.
August 14, 2016: We sought the Olympic spirit at Seoul’s Olympic Park but melted away in the heat, as we did anywhere else outside aircon spaces. From temples and tombs we moved to massive and fascinating museums.
July 25, 2016; At the southern end of the Baekdu Daegan Trail we started hiking in Jirisan National Park and continued farther north, totaling 135 of of the 735-km trail.
July 11, 2016: A 3-day hike in Seoraksan National Park had us blown away. The views, the trails, the sites along the way, the meetings with Koreans all contributed to a new passion: hiking.
June 26, 2016: Why drive from Seoul to the East Coast in a couple of hours when you can take oh, let’s say, ten days?
June 10, 2016: After a month of visiting family and friends in the Netherlands we returned to Korea. Back to good companionship, food, and a beautiful country – it feels good being here again.
