I’ve been here a while now, and after the initial pains of navigation I’m starting to get the hang of it. The road network is superb, with some major roads to get you where you need to go quickly. There’s also a whole heap of minor roads off the beaten track. I try to get the balance between good progress and seeing the real Korea, by mixing the two.
Today that worked well, getting me out of the city of Daejean quickly at the expense of scenery. Lots of industrial sites, but again it’s part of the country and you may as all see it all, right? I then hit up some minor twisty roads across terraced rice paddies. Three up mopeds were the transport of choice for the workers, all elderly people with a smile and a wave for johnny foreigner.
