After we stopped and I had my donut, the sun came out and all was right with the world again! It’s amazing what a huge difference it makes to everything, from the scenery to the people. Everything!
We rode to Chuncheon over some fast dual carriageway, across the hills and around huge lakes on raised roads. The scenery was fantastic, while at the same time being a testament to the Korean infrastructure. Big bridges again, long tunnels and a train line that must be a treat to ride on. I stopped to take a picture of this dam, one of several in the area and no doubt the smallest.
I didn’t have time to fully dry out, but enough to get mostly dry. I’m hoping for a dry start tomorrow at least. Without a cloud in the sky I was all set to wild camp, but I’ve found some traveling buddies and the consensus was a dry room. £20 a night is quite reasonable, and there’s free WiFi.
