Distance / 走行距離:50.33km
Time on bike / 走行時間 : 3h 45m
Average speed / 平均速度:13.4m/h
Total distance / 現在までの積算距離:75.2km

Summary: Felt pretty blue this morning. Surrounded by city, just had to get out. Biked 50km to Jinha beach and shared a free camping ground with about 400 screaming school kids. Stoked to be out of the city though and into the countryside. Not much different from Japan though.



Apparently I looked cool / あなたが格好いい、ということで写真を一緒に撮らせてくださいとのことでした。

Cute Girls. Looks like a nice campground. I'm glad you are on your way and having fun! Congrats! My favorite dish in Berkeley is Korean Spare Ribs. I bet it is great there.

Sweet man,

Your adventure is finally beginning! What's that crazy yellow donut hanging from the tree in the picture above?

Good idea about taking it easy for the first few weeks. You need to condition your body carefully before going for a 12000km bike ride. You don't want to over stress your joints or they might give up on you!

I'll be checking your website every day at about 10:00am NZ time.

God bless,

Mike C

Hi Rob, it looks like lots of adventure, but as they say, "You ain't seen nothing yet!"

We'll keep checking back, and keep you in our prayers. Thanks for sharing with us while in Okinawa.

God Bless Tom, Shirley & family

Mike, the crazy yellow donut is the sea buscuit that I carry just in case I need to float in the Caspian Sea during my trip. I hear that they only have green coloured ones in Turkmenistan, and I prefer yellow.

Hi Rok, thanks for dropping by! If I can just get through the Korea traffic, then I'm sure I can make it to England safe and well!
