Busan

Typed up: on ship to Long Beach Posted from: Andy and Juliette's house in Newbury Park The bus ride to Busan was over an hour shorter than the book had said it would be. I think they must have built some new roads since the book was written. It was easy to find a locker that fit both our bags at a metro station. Then we spent the afternoon just wandering a little until it was time to meet Matthew, our CouchSurfing host.

Cheongju

Typed up: on ship to Long Beach Posted from: Andy and Juliette's house in Newbury Park We took the bus from the Express Bus Station in Seoul to Cheongju. It was great. The bus had leather seats similar to business class in an airplane, yet ticket prices were still pretty low. The scenery was nice and green. It felt like Korea has a lot of space that is not built up, and is determined to keep it that way.

Seoul

Typed up: on ship to Long Beach Posted from: Andy and Juliette's home in Newbury Park Our flight to Seoul was as good as we've gotten used to. We ended up at the end of the immigration line, and this is the first time that our bags made it to the luggage carousel before we did. The airport was clean and organized. We had little trouble with the payphone calling our CouchSurfing host Paul.
