To celebrate my love's arrival in Korea, we took a two-day sojourn to Kanghwa-do. Kanghwa-do is about 30 miles out, and its the north-westernmost part of South Korea. It is separated from North Korea by a small channel.

The weather was nothing short of miserable the first day. We stayed in and waited it out. Saturday however, turned out to be an excellent day for riding. Although still cloudy the sun had cleared most of the fog and left us with the best of both worlds: cool and enjoyable with good visibility.

On saturday, we made a full circle of the island. The highlights were the rice paddies in the northern half. As the sun came out they began to steam. Quite beautiful and awe-inspiring. Check out the slide show!

Soon I will need to sell the Daelim to prepare for my big ride across asia. More on that later.
