South Korea – Day Eight

My favourite mode of transport, the humble bus.

Note: I recently spent two weeks in Korea, this series of posts are my notes and logbook from that time. The notes were written in real-time and where I feel like I have left out details in the original notes I have tried to include more information. The text may jump between time periods due to the constant nature of the note taking.

Today’s been pretty cruisey. I had a bit of a sleep in and just bummed around the hostel for a bit.

Today was my last day in Seoul. There was five of us leaving today so we all hung out and just sat around watching Korean TV.

I left around 11 to make my way towards the bus station where I’d be going to Gyeongju. I made it in time to catch the “excellent” quality bus. As you’d expect a bus ride is a bus ride and there isn’t much to talk about. I got into Gyeongju around 5pm and walked to my hostel. It looks like a cool place with nice facilities. I had the room to myself for most of the afternoon but now have a roommate.

I came back in after dinner and the host of the hostel asked if I would like to go to a nearby lake with him and some of the other people from the hostel. I did and it was a great time. The lake was about 15 minutes away. We drove around the lake for an hour or so and took lots of photos.

It was a fun night with some language learning and cultural exchange.
