The Heungnyemun Gate.


To give some sense of scale, here’s a picture of the gates to the temple. The walled area completely encompasses the compound, which is right in the heart of Seoul.

It was busy with tourists of course, but still large enough to find a quiet space for contemplation. For a while I sat under the trees by the lake and imagined being a monk. The meditation, inner peace and tranquility.

Unfortunately monks don’t ride motorbikes, so it didn’t last!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

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!
