After the busy Seoul, I headed to Chuncheon where I tried for the first time a Jjimjilbang, which is a public bath with a room to sleap on the floor. So funny! I had a great talk with a woman seating naked on her plastic stool next to me (I was naked on my plastic stool too lol)

I visited also an island where a famous korean drama, wich I haven't watch yet, has been shot. Nice walk and romantic scenery.

View Asia on ChachaInAsia's travel map.

After a quiet day to rest from my night flight, I was really happy to see Yoohee, a friend I met in Liverpool nearly 2 years ago.
I spent a few days in her place with her family. So many good food, beautiful places and funny moments. It was a huge climate change, 3 degrees and windy.

I saw the rehearsal of a futur famous korean band ( Joonghee's band, Yoohee's brother) and drunk to much suju while eating samgyupsal.
I visited shopping streets and the palace Gyeongbokgung then taste the yummy chapu chapu.
I went to the noisy fish marquet of Incheon.
I had a nice walk in Buckon village, traditional houses in the middle of Seoul.
I watched the sunset next to Seoul tower on top of a small mountain and walk down at night.

I will be back there to enjoy the trees on flowers at the end of Mai.

My two last days in Thailand went really fast. Ferry back to the continent a night and a haircut in Trat and a minivan to the big Bangkok.
I spend the day shopping to find winter clothes for the next destination.

Thailand was easy traveling, waterfalls, too much exquisite street food, white sand beach, road trip and wild life.

The smile of the population and friendly backpackers made my stay there a restful and warm moment.

8 hours of bus, a night at Trat and an hour and half of ferry from the national park : Koh Kut, a not so small island but quiet empty.

4 days of beach, snorkeling, nap, waterfall, sunset walk, nap, seafood, funny talks, nap...

Well I rested a little :P, saw colorful fish and got the swim suit tanning mark.
