Hitler youth in Korea?


No, but a swift glance at a temple and you might be excused for thinking that. The temple signs have the tails the wrong way round to be swastickers. (Or should that be, they simply have them the correct way?).

I took a detour on seeing a temple sign. It was about 8k out of my way, where the road turned into gravel, which turned into a track, which turned into a path. Very steep climbs but I got there. I thought about giving in a few times, but I pressed on.

Greeted by the monks nothing was said. Prayer hands and nods were sufficient mutual acknowledgement. They had something going on so I left them to it, which is when I dropped the bike turning it around! After all that off roading getting there, I dropped it on a flat concrete slab!!

No real damage, just my pride. I managed not to swear my head off in front of the monks either. I couldn’t pick it up though, not with all the luggage on. Help was at hand when they came running out to assist. What a sight that must have been!!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
