Korea Daejeon Seoul KTX

23 November 2022

Back to the start

Daejeon to Seoul on the KTX

Now I am back in Seoul, a mere 2km from where I was 11 days ago.
Today I waited as long as possible to go to the station in Daejeon, because it is a drag dragging around my bag for hours waiting for a train. It seems very unusual to check out of a hotel at 12 noon.

Before that, I walked one last big lap of Daejeon, and took a collection of the worst photos I have ever taken in my life, before taking a bad photo of the station and a bad photo of my hotel room here in Seoul.

I am happy with my room, the location is very good, better than I realised when I booked it, the hotel is very modern, you can tell because it has power points where they should be and they do not pile crap up everywhere that no one would ever need like a shoe horn and a show polishing kit and a computer from 1983.

So now for 7 more nights in Seoul. That should be 3 more hikes. Weather is a bit iffy for one of those days, and it is supposed to get very cold, the forecast says a low of minus 9. Given that it is 18c right now that seems implausible.

Hold for terrible photos.

This is a golf driving range. I was alerted to the fact by the ping noise. If you have been to Japan you have seen the green netting on top of buildings, here they built a building around the green netting. It claims to be 130m long and related to the great white shark of the Saudi Arabian royal family / murderous regime - Greg Norman.

The view through the trees was foggy and all low rise buildings, no giant apartments. I thought the hills were man made but after I walked down I saw a stony cliff face, so they cut into it and left part of the hill and flattened the area around it. I think.

Final boring photo, my modern minimalist Seoul hotel room. The price has more than doubled since I booked it. I like to check that because they have free cancellation, and sometimes you can cancel and re-book the same room for a cheaper price.
