Day 251 - The Green Hills of Gyeongju

I woke up to see green hills (no, not the Windows XP wallpaper!), my hotel was just overlooking one of the parks in Gyeongju and the hills were some of the old tombs of the old kings.

Day 250 - From Seoul to Gyeongju

A warm and sunny day in Seoul and it had to be the day I decided to take the train to Gyeongju, or I actually decided to take a ferry from Incheon to Jeju Island but it just so happened that the ferries were not running on Sunday. So Gyeongju which was the initial plan according to my spreadsheet got the nod.

Day 249 - More People in Seoul

Another day of sightseeing and taking photos of people in Seoul. Despite Seoul being a big and busy city, I find it very relaxing to walk through. People are friendly, cars stop when you cross the street, it is clean, safe and has a lot of different areas even without walking too far (and I have not even seen half of the city).

Day 248 - People with Seoul

Today, I planned a whole day walking around Seoul, going to visit Namsan Park for another walk around, go to the Namsangol Hanok Folk Village, visit the Changdeokgung Palace and finishing the day with a stroll though Insadong.

Day 247 - Seoul

Arriving in South Korea or Japan, no mater where you come from, always feels like you arrived in civilization. Everything is clean and efficient, you don't need to worry about people stealing your stuff, there are free toilets everywhere, free and fast wifi, proper public transport and the people are nice on top of that.

Day 246 - Off to Seoul

After enjoying a quiet walk around Melaka, I took he bus to KL and from there decided to head to KL Sentral for a quick lunch and stroll around. My flight was only in the evening so I had plenty of time.

Day 245 - Melaka along the Canal

Despite having bigger plans for the bike and owner portraits, I decided t put this idea on hold for now and just chill in Melaka.
