So far, it looks like we're not going to have much problem using up our 28 days there!
We're going to be in Seoul for the first four or five days. It's a big city, with a population of about 10 million people so there should be lots of interesting things to see! Oh, here's a map so that you can get a better idea of the size of the country...
You can see how close it is to both China (on the left) and Japan (on the lower right). To give you some idea of distance, it is about 450 kms (280 miles) from Seoul to Busan.
They have a high speed rail system for taking people across the country between the two largest cities. It costs around $50 per person, with the train traveling at 300 km/h (180 mph)! I think I would like to experience that!
We would also like to visit Jeju Island. You can see it near the center of the bottom of the map above. It's a popular tourist spot, but October is shoulder season and crowds (and prices) should be lower.
And, we've been invited to stay with our friend June's parents. They live somewhere out in the country so it will be fun to do that! I wonder if they speak any English. We're going to have to buy a Korean/English dictionary. That ought to be interesting!
There are also places for us to go hiking!
Yep. Definitely going hiking in South Korea!
Four weeks isn't a really long time to explore a whole country, but when you consider that South Korea is smaller than the state of Nebraska, we should be able to do it justice!
So the planning continues.
In the meantime, here's our Amazon deal of the day for our RV'ing readers!
When I ran the parts department for an RV dealership, we sold a LOT of these little dishwashing racks. That's because they fit perfectly in most RV double sinks, and for rigs with single sinks their size takes up very little space on a typically tiny RV countertop!
Currently on sale at less than half price, this is a great deal.
