The DBS ferry from Donghae to Vladivostok is much better then I imagined. It’s also a lot smaller. Boarding took a while but we all got safely aboard. Myself, Ken, Chip and two new riders we meet at the ferry port.
Junyoung is riding to Europe from Korea on a natty 700cc scooter. He’s got 2 months off work. Adbang is riding to lake Baikal and back on a new BMW 1200gs and has 2 weeks off work! That’ll be a good effort if he makes it.
I’m waiting for the ship to get further away before I take the obligatory “Goodbye Korea” photo. In the mean time, here’s an inscription on the deck which certainly strikes a chord with me. The Eastern Dream is a fine vessel indeed!
