Way out there!

“Ahhhhh finally,” is what I was thinking to myself upon my departure on Sunday. There have been too many days of rain, cold, and and lame weekend weather. I decided to head out to myeongsa, not the beach, but the mountain that bears the same name. It was quite the long ride-a-roo, over 6 hours. I want to get into the habit of riding 6 or more hours due to the upcoming tour around the states. If you know HWY 32 by chance, I was on it for hours and it’s not the most exciting highway in Korea. However, it’s not all that busy and has a wide shoulder, so I did it. It’s inevitable when touring in Korea that you will encounter drivers who LOVE to blare their horns at cyclists for no reason whatsoever. So, I do like to rid myself of those wonderful people as much as possible.

I eventually came to the mountain area and found this chill place to have lunch. It was a gazebo surrounded by water with plenty of shade. No one was there, and it was incredibly peaceful. I had some Pear Bag (Paris Baguette [a popular Korean bakery]) and then noticed that I had over lubed my chain due to my leg being covered in oil, nice!

As I was coming back to Baebang, I took some detours that I’ve wanted to explore. Two things that I found were worth the detours. One, a perfect small river to take my raft this Summer, and two, a nice lake where I could also take my raft. It’s been too long since I took my raft out. That needs to change SOON!

Another tour to come this Wednesday, thank you Hoseo University for the holiday!

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
