Two days travelling, a ferry to Mokpo then bus to Busan 10th / 11th November

This took nearly 5 hours to get into Mokpo, so at 10.00 pm we went looking for somewhere to stop for the night. First stop was the same motel we used on the way over and by 11.00 pm we were settled with a very nice pizza and even watched Groundhog Day with Korean subtitles.
