Seogwipo the day of many hills Monday 5th November

After a large porridge breakfast we left the lovely accommodation, immediately stopping to photograph storks and what should appear but a pod of dolphins very close to the shore. We watched them for a while before moving on.

With lovely views out to sea and looking inland towards Sanbangsan Mountain with it’s very steep sides. There was even the main mountain Hallasan in the background although not very clear today.

From here we started to climb and on what turned out to be the hottest day we have cycled in since first landing in Australia!

The climbing continued for the rest of the day (with some downhill as well). Here were the first Mandarin trees we had seen.

Jungmun Tourist complex was next, one of the most popular destinations for korean tourists, there are some strange museums you can visit here.

Finally we arrived in Seogwipo and our guesthouse, it is central, clean and inexpensive.

We found another large market and ate there, dumplings, crab on a stick and orange filled batter.
