Escape from Busan


After a leisurely afternoon in Busan it was time to catch the KTX back to Seoul. Unfortunately I had rather underestimated the amount of time it would take to get back to the accommodation to collect my things and then get back to the train station. This turned into a mad dash to make the 8.55pm train which I made with barely 5 minutes to spare. Funnily enough the KTX train journey was faster than this little detour!

Having made it back to Seoul it was back to the guest house for a final few winks sleep before my last day. Unfortunately I woke Monday morning to find a huge cockroach on the wall above my bed. For someone who is only used to seeing to occasional small spider the sight of a 2 inch long cockroach presented somewhat of a problem and a definite end to sleep! I eventually knocked it off the wall where it scurried under the bed. It was time to bid a hasty farewell…
