Photo essay: Sojourn to the South Sea
(Chelyu Namhae / 체류 남해)

  The best image for illustrating bicycle touring in South Korea is two-wheeled kaleidoscope.  With every turn of the wheels there is a fascinating shift of perspective, color, texture and composition.  The towns are colorful, the villages are quaint, the farmland has colors, hues and texture, the mountains are layered, and the streams are past, present and future all at once.  The pictures below are only snap shots and don't do it justice to the country.  For every city picture there are a million more. For every farm valley picture there are a million more. For every temple picture there are a million more. For every face picture there are a million more.  To understand the enrichment of bicycle travel in South Korea you need to not only see everything the is shown here, but everything that is not shown as well.  It is well worth a personal visit.

Here is a photo essay of Sojourn of the South Sea tour. Note we don't follow exactly the same route on every trip. Comments, corrections, clarification and supplemental information are welcome.
