Touring Asan and Cheonan

Today was a little different than most days as I actually took some time to plan my trip. I thought that by researching some of the popular destinations in the Asan/Cheonan area online, I would see some really cool sites. I planned to see some of the hot springs, botanical gardens, folk villages, and kimchi making villages. I didn’t really find anything all that interesting at any of the destinations. Most of them seemed more geared towards families with children. The Dogo Hot Spring looked interesting, but the price of admission was $15 to $20. I thought long and hard about spending $20 to relax at a hot spring for a few hours, but decided I would rather spend that money on an after ride pizza.

There really is nothing better after an entire day’s ride, than a Domino’s pizza. So, I kept on heading down a not too traffic heavy road and then got hungry. I thought that I would eventually run into some town with a restaurant, but I ended up in a farmland area. I didn’t feel like risking going any further as I was becoming starving. I turned around and headed back, eventually passing Soonchungyeoung University. I found a pizza place, which was really the first restaurant that I saw, and went in. The owner was nice enough to let me bring my bike inside. There was really no place to tie it up outside.

Finally, and perhaps the highlight of this trip was that I found $20 on the side of the road. I first thought it was fake money. I’ve seen fake (play) money on the streets as some companies like to create flyers that resemble fake money. But, it turned out to be real. It was the perfect way to end a ride!
