New Year!

climbing wall koreaThis year's New Year celebration was pretty lame.  I stayed in and got mildly toasted as we'd decided to head to some hot springs near Uljin on the first.

Nothing like a little radioactivity to add something awesome to your bath!

But even that wasn't enough to stop me thinking the trip was a colossal waste of precious Won.  We ended up giving some of it to a bunch of very needy individuals, as of all the chaebol they've been the most hard done by.   Shame, Korea Inc.!

All the chaebol have a piece of this little spa town, directing their fraction of the hot springs into their hotel, and the one we stayed at sadly seemed to only get a small chunk.  Maybe that's why he got bullied by the prosecutor, but I digress.  Wouldn't serve to talk about how the bigger boys have been trying to break apart that little empire for years!

Their patio was nice, and there were plenty of trails to hike.   Not too many out in this cold, but it certainly helped space out the Monopoly games.

June drove back on the Expressway for about an hour.  She claimed to be completely wiped and couldn't do anything when we got back home.

If you ever get up to JangHo, they have a pretty nice climbing wall right beside the ocean. Would love to try it out during a more inviting season.
